The ARISE programme gives fellowships for technology developers and engineers, to advance technology and method development in the life sciences and learn how to lead service providing research infrastructures.
ARISE is the first fellowship programme of its kind that is training technology developers to become highly educated research infrastructure scientists. After successfully finishing their training, we expect fellows to take positions as senior scientists or leaders in core facilities, research infrastructures, or technology development groups in academia, industry, healthcare, or other sectors.
After successfully finishing their training, fellows will become knowledgeable about management of research infrastructures and provision of service to external users. The training is preparing the fellows to take positions as senior scientists or leaders in core facilities, other research infrastructures, or technology development groups in academia, industry, healthcare, or other sectors.
Research infrastructures are core facilities, large instrumentation, data resources and other related services that are used by the broad scientific community to conduct research.
Researach infrastructure scientists provide services to advanced technology to other researchers, improve technologies, and run the service units. For this job, they need a unique set of skills that you can learn at EMBL if you join ARISE programme.
Technology development, especially with the purpose of enriching service provision in the life sciences, is currently one of EMBL’s main strategic focuses. EMBL groups are developing technologies in imaging, chemical biology, computational modelling, microfluidics, robotics, X-ray optics, high-precision mechanics, data acquisition, automation, bioinformatics and software development, and integrated structural biology.
We are looking for professionals with at least 4 years of experiences in technology development or engineering, coming either from academia or industry, with or without a PhD. You need to have a wish to develop new technologies for life sciences, strong interest to support other scientists by providing different technology as a service and to learn to manage research infrastructures. You might be an engineer in industry or an experienced scientists in academia who is looking for the new directions in their career development. Running research infrastructures is very interesting, creative and rewarding job.
Each ARISE fellow will be hosted by one EMBL group or team at one of EMBL’s six sites (Barcelona, Grenoble, Hamburg, Heidelberg, Hinxton, or Rome). The groups that host ARISE fellows are listed . They all have a track record in developing new methods and technologies, providing these as a service, and applying them to answer novel scientific questions.
