EMBO Short-Term Fellowships, 2019+
No deadline for applications: open call
Short-Term Fellowships fund research exchanges of up to three months between laboratories in eligible countries. Awarded applicants can stay on their research visit for an additional three months (maximum), however, EMBO will not provide funding for this extended period. 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. The fellowships cover travel plus subsistence of the fellow only and not of dependents.
Applicants must be active researchers at any stage in their career with a minimum of one year of research experience at the PhD-student level, or the equivalent.
EMBO Short-Term Fellowships are awarded for research exchanges between laboratories in EMBC Member States, Associated Member States or Cooperation Partners. EMBO Short-Term Fellowships are not awarded for exchanges between two laboratories within the same country.
Only in exceptional cases will EMBO Short-Term fellowships be awarded for research visits outside the countries listed above. For such cases, it is essential that a justification be provided why there is no appropriate expertise or technology in EMBC Member States, Associated Member States or Cooperation Partners.
Applications from outside EMBC Member States, Associated Member States or Cooperation Partners will not be considered.
Applications for the exclusive purpose of training in a technique rather than as a component of a wider research project, will not be considered for funding.
EMBO does not consider applications for Short-Term Fellowships to prolong visits begun under other auspices, or as bridging fellowships between, or prior to, long term stays funded by EMBO or other organizations.
Applications for fellowships to attend courses, workshops, or symposia will not be considered.
There is no deadline for applications, however it is recommended to apply three months before the proposed starting date. Applications received or completed only after the start of the visit will not be considered.
