Internationally mobile postdoctoral researchers in Europe and around the world
2019 meeting of the EMBO Postdoctoral Fellows, Heidelberg
EMBO Postdoctoral Fellows are funded up to two years to carry out their research in laboratories in Europe and elsewhere in the world. Together they form a global network of internationally mobile young scientists who have demonstrated excellence in their fields. The fellows receive funding and benefit from career development activities, such as the EMBO Lab Leadership Course.
Every two years, recent fellows are invited to the EMBO Fellows’ Meeting in Heidelberg, Germany. In alternate years, fellows residing in North America are invited to the US Fellows’ Meeting. At these meetings, the fellows present their research, share experiences, establish new contacts, and meet EMBO staff.
The EMBO Postdoctoral Alumni Meeting alternates with the EMBO Fellows’ Meeting in Heidelberg. It presents an opportunity for alumni to meet every two years.
Since the 1960s, thousands of scientists have benefited from EMBO Postdoctoral Fellowships.
