EMBL Rome, EMBL EBI (Hinxton) and the Italian Institute of Technology wish to jointly offer a postdoctoral programme that builds on the collaborative relationship of the institutes and furthers the understanding of molecular biology and disease and bioinformatics through world-class scientific research by generating new collaborative links between the EMBL and IIT.
Researchers are supported by easy access to scientific expertise, well-equipped facilities and an active seminar programme.
Successful ETPOD postdocs will be awarded a 3-year fellowship to work on a joint project between a group at IIT and a group either at EMBL Rome or EMBL EBI.
Projects may be selected from pre-defined areas or proposed by the applicant. In the case of self-defined projects, the area of work must have been agreed with both EMBL and the IIT based group leaders.
The postdoctoral fellowships will be awarded in 2020, to start as soon as possible. Fellowships typically begin before the end of the year, but the start date may be delayed with the agreement of the group leaders.
All ETPOD fellowships must be undertaken within 12 months of the fellowship being awarded.
We have an informal culture, international working environment and excellent professional development opportunities but one of the really amazing things about us is the concentration of technical and scientific expertise – something you probably won’t find anywhere else.
With 27 member states, laboratories at six locations across Europe and thousands of scientists and engineers working together, the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) is a powerhouse of biological expertise. The intergovernmental organisation, headquartered in Heidelberg, was founded in 1974 with the mission of promoting molecular biology research in Europe, training young scientists, and developing new technologies. EMBL currently employs 1800 people in Barcelona, Grenoble, Hamburg, Heidelberg, Hinxton near Cambridge (UK), and Rome. Publishing hundreds of research articles and hosting dozens of conferences every year, EMBL is pouring out biological insights, and training Europe’s future scientific talent.
The Neurobiology and Epigenetics Unit at EMBL Rome studies mammalian physiology from the molecular to the systems level using the laboratory mouse as a model system.
The IIT is a non-profit organization whose main goal is to promote excellence in basic and applied research. IIT”s scientific program is characterized by a strong multi-disciplinary element, with interdisciplinary expertise in various field, from neuroscience to new drug discovery, nanotechnologies for new materials to rehabilitative robotics.
