Co-funded by the European Union
In 2019, EMBL and Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions will fund about 20 EIPOD positions involving at least two research groups, preferably located in different units. Each project will have one scientific supervisor from EMBL who will officially host the EIPOD, but all projects will involve extensive collaboration with the EMBL partner lab(s). External research partners from academia, industry, clinics and museums are welcome. All applicants must develop a research proposal as part of their application and should get directly in contact with potential EMBL supervisors to prediscuss projects ideas prior to submission. Please note that a letter of support from the main EMBL host is needed as part of the application. If an external research partner is involved then they must also provide a letter of support.
