Postdoctoral research at EMBL-EBI

EMBL-EBI is one of Europe's premier research institutes and provides an interdisciplinary environment with world class facilities for scientists at all stages of their careers. We offer many opportunities for postdoctoral fellows. Most of our postdocs have external funding, but some fellowships may be offered as specified positions on our jobs page. If you are interested in doing your postdoc with us, the first step is to contact the group leader of your choice directly.

The EMBL Postdoctoral Programme page has more information about postdocs throughout EMBL, and you can find more information on the EMBL-EBI Postdoc Wiki.

The EMBL Interdisciplinary Postdoctoral programme (EIPOD)

The EIPOD programme encourages candidates whose research crosses scientific boundaries. These projects bring together scientific fields that are usually separate or transfer techniques to a novel context.

The EBI–Sanger Postdoctoral programme (ESPOD)

EMBL-EBI and the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute share the Genome Campus, a proximity that fosters close collaborations. This programme is for researchers who take both an experimental and computational approach to their work. ESPOD postdocs are supported by easy access to scientific expertise, well-equipped facilities and an active seminar programme.

EMBL‐EBI–Biomedical Research Centre postdoctoral programme (EBPOD)

This programme is for researchers who will work on projects that apply computational approaches to translational clinical research involving human subjects. The first projects will be announced in summer 2014.
