The EMBL | Stanford Life Science Alliance invites potential postdoctoral fellows who want to bridge two leading research institutions, work with cutting-edge technology, and develop a global profile to submit an application for a Bridging Excellence Fellowship.
Ambitious early stage scientists should propose a high-impact, creative collaboration between at least one lab from the Stanford University School of Medicine (all departments incl.) and one lab from EMBL (all sites). By leveraging the opportunities at two leading institutions, postdoctoral fellows can gain valuable experience in two distinct research environments and develop a global profile. As well as access to researchers and technology at both sites, fellows can take advantage of the first-rate postdoctoral training opportunities from both institutions.
Successful postdoctoral researchers will be awarded a three-year fellowship from the Life Science Alliance. Postdocs will be employed at EMBL for the duration of their fellowship and spend up to one year visiting their collaborators at Stanford University.
The fellowship includes funding for: • A standard 3 year EMBL stipend • A contribution towards lab consumables. • A travel and accommodation supplement for visit(s) to Stanford. • Funds for presenting at an international conference.
