About the team/job
Are you an innovative thinker eager to develop novel methods and technologies for the life sciences? Are you driven by curiosity and impact? Do you wish to become an expert in service development, provision and research infrastructure management in academia or industry? If so, we would like to hear from you! Here is why.
The life sciences are increasingly relying on services provided by the core facilities, synchrotrons, data services and other research infrastructures. This creates a greater need for trained experts who know how to operate and develop scientific services. To meet this need, the ARISE programme (Career Accelerator for Research Infrastructure Scientists) at EMBL, is the first Fellowship programme of its kind in Europe that trains scientists and engineers for the high-level careers in research infrastructures in academia or industry.
You are invited to apply for one of the 20 three-year Fellowships to
For the ARISE programme, we encourage applications from individuals who can complement our teams – we believe that success is built on having teams whose backgrounds and personal experiences reflect the diversity of the populations that our science serves. We are particularly interested in the strengths and lived experiences of women, and all genders, different ethnic groups and cultures, and all demographics to help us avoid perpetuating biases and oversights at this transformational point in our people strategy.
ARISE receives funding from Horizon 2020 under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie action COFUND (grant agreement No 945405).
As an ARISE Fellow, you will be developing a method, technique or technology of your choice which is the field of expertise of EMBL groups who are participating in ARISE, e.g.:
Your development should facilitate research in life science fields of genome, structural, developmental and planetary biology, cell and tissue biology, translational research, or drug design and have the potential to be integrated into the service catalogues of research infrastructures.
You will get trained for the jobs in research infrastructures (core facilities, data services, synchrotrons etc.) and attend over 60 courses on how to provide and plan services, how to manage the operation of diverse infrastructure, manage staff and finances, handle innovation and collaboration with industry, do strategic planning, and understand science policy and funding system.
You will also be able to network with a diverse group of professionals working at EMBL and in ARISE partner organisations.
The fellowship duration is 36 months.
