Postdocs at EMBL-EBI

Postdoctoral research at EMBL-EBI

Our international, interdisciplinary environment and world-class facilities set our postdoctoral programme apart. Researchers at EMBL-EBI work closely with experts in our data service and infrastructure teams, and benefit from the rich scientific exchange and collaborative culture of the Wellcome Genome Campus.

We offer many opportunities for postdoctoral fellows. Most of our postdocs have external funding, but some fellowships may be offered as 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.

You can find more information about fellowships on EMBL's five sites by visiting the EMBL Postdoctoral Programme page.
