Between 2020 and 2025, ARISE will award 62 three-year fellowships to talented technology experts, helping them prepare for future careers in research infrastructures.
As an ARISE Fellow, you will spend most of your time working on technology development. You will need to find the match between your interests and the interests of the group which you wish to join, before you apply for the fellowship.
Groups that host ARISE fellows are all at EMBL. They all have a track record in development of novel technologies. These technologies broadly come in the fields of data sciences and bioinformartics, mechanical engineering, optical engineering and imaging and biotechnology. Full overview of the exact fields of all groups you will find here.
Working at EMBL is very interactive and connections with colleagues are built through many professional and free time activities. You will establish connections with experts working at ARISE partner organisations, and learn from them about technology development and service provision. They will often bring in expertise and technology not available at EMBL.
During the fellowship, you will also learn about novel development in broad areas of life sciences though various seminars and conferences taking place at EMBL. This broad knowledge which will help you understand the science of your future users of the technology, but also to think how to make your technology as broadly usable as possible.
In parallel to your work on technology development, you will get trained in skills that are specifically needed for senior staff of research infrastructures. This training will enable you to take a senior position in the research infrastructures after leaving EMBL.
ARISE professional curriculum includes training on
This training will be provided in the forms of courses and secondments at EMBL or ARISE partner organisations, distributed throughout the 3 years of the fellowship. To get the full overview of the training possibilities, please read the Guide for applicants.
All fellows will complete four secondments
When applying for the fellowship, you will be asked to indicate where they would propose to complete their long secondment (2–6 months). This can be changed during the fellowship time and represents no commitment at this stage.
During the fellowship, you should decide which position you wish to take after the fellowship is over. This can be for example the leading position in a smaller core facility, or senior scientists in a big research infrastructure like synchrotrone, or similar. You might decide that you wish to stay a technology developer and to make new technologies for a wide variety of users either in academia. or in industry.
To help you decide which direction to go, you will meet the career adviser, and make the career development plan with our help. You will also have regular meeting with your supervisor and select a mentor for yourself. ARISE office will guide you through all these processes.
