EMBO Short-Term Fellowships for Research Programme
Short-Term Fellowships fund research visits of up to three months to laboratories in Europe and elsewhere in the world. The aim is to facilitate valuable collaborations with research groups applying techniques that are unavailable in the applicant's laboratory. Short-Term Fellowships are not awarded for exchanges between two laboratories within the same country. Short-Term Fellowships are intended for joint research work rather than consultations.
All applications should focus on the benefit to the home laboratory and involve movement between countries – one of which must be an EMBC Member State. (For applicants from a laboratory within a non-member state, the Short-Term Fellowships are for a fixed duration of 90 days). The fellowships cover travel plus subsistence of the fellow only and not of dependents.
There is no deadline for applications, however it is recommended to apply three months before the proposed starting date.
Please note: Applications received or completed only after the start of the visit will not be considered.
The application process is handled via the online application system.
The Receiving Institute Acceptance Form and two confidential letters of reference (one from the current supervisor) must be sent to the EMBO Short-Term Fellowship office by post or email.
Please read the helpful notes for applicants and the Short-Term Fellowships guidelines for applicants before applying online.
