Detall de la convocatòria


Objectiu de la convocatòria
The EMBO Postdoctoral Fellowships are awarded for a period of up to two years and support excellent postdoctoral researchers in laboratories throughout Europe and the world. International exchange is a key requirement.
Característiques principals
EMBO is no longer exclusively dedicated to the promotion and funding of molecular biology and has opened to fields in the life sciences that traditionally have not explored biological questions at the molecular level. However, applications to the EMBO Fellowship Programme are expected to explore the mechanisms behind biological phenomena rather than remaining at the descriptive or observational level. These mechanisms may involve molecules, but they may also involve higher levels of organization, such as cells, tissues, organisms, populations or ecosystems.
