Applications and supporting documentation (two references, receiving institute acceptance) are only accepted via the online application system. Only fully completed applications will be considered.
Carefully read the FAQs and the EMBO Postdoctoral Fellowships guidelines before applying.
The date, according to Central European (summer) Time (CE(S)T), in which the candidates confirm that their application is complete, is the reference date for eligibility and evaluation.
Applications for EMBO Postdoctoral Fellowships are accepted throughout the year and enter one of two evaluation cycles depending on the time of submission.
Spring evaluation: includes all eligible applications submitted by the second Friday of February, 14:00 Central European Time. Results for this round will be announced at the end of May or beginning of June.
Autumn evaluation: includes all eligible applications submitted by the second Friday of August, 14:00 Central European Summer Time. Results for this round will be announced at the end of November or beginning of December
Registration for an EMBO Postdoctoral Fellowship online application account is not sufficient to enter the corresponding evaluation round. An application is only regarded as complete once all the required information is submitted and the candidate confirms completion. Applications completed after 14:00 CET on the day of the deadline will enter the next evaluation round. No exceptions can be made.
