Director of EICAT

The Director of the EMBL International Centre for Advanced Training (EICAT) leads teams devoted to excellence in training at all stages of careers in the life sciences.

EICAT promotes advanced training activities between the six EMBL sites, between EMBL and its sister institution EMBO, as well as between the Laboratory and research organisations in the EMBL member states.

While EMBL’s Internal Training activities focus on its International PhD, Postdoctoral and Collaborative Training Programmes, the External Training section is largely dedicated to the Visitor and Courses and Conferences Programmes.

EMBL is an inter-governmental organisation with 28 member states, one associate member and two prospect members that is led by the Director General, Prof. Edith Heard, appointed by the EMBL Council.
