Fellowship programmes of European Molecular Biology Organisation (EMBO) allow mobility of life scientists among EMBO Member States, Associate Members and Cooperation Partners.

EMBO Short Term Fellowships

Short-Term Fellowships (STF) fund research exchanges of up to three months between laboratories in eligible countries. 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.

EMBO Long Term Fellowships

The EMBO Long-Term Fellowships (LTF) are awarded for a period of up to two years and support post-doctoral research visits to laboratories throughout Europe and the world. International exchange is a key feature in the application process. 

Applicants must hold a doctorate degree or equivalent at the start of the fellowship. Applicants who already hold a PhDdegree at the time of application are eligible to apply only if they passed their PhD exam in the two years prior to the date of application. Applicants must have at least one first author publication accepted in or published in an international peer reviewed journal at the time of application. All applications must involve movement between countries (detailed information about mobility requirements is listed in guidelines).

Applications have to be made to EMBO directly.
