The ARISE programme is co-funded by EMBL and the Marie-Skłodowska-Curie Action (MSCA) of the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme – co-funding of regional, national and international programmes (COFUND). In the frame of ARISE (Career Accelerator for Research Infrastructure Scientists) programme, EMBL is looking for experienced professionals with a background in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) eager to develop novel technologies for life sciences and get trained to operate life science research infrastructures of tomorrow.

About the fellowship:
  • Successful applicants will become ARISE Fellows and will receive a three-year Fellowship.
  • Between 2021 and 2025, ARISE will award 62 three-year fellowships to talented technology experts to develop new technologies for the life sciences that can be included in the service offers of worldwide research infrastructures operating in the fields of imaging, bioinformatics, structural biology, genomics, proteomics, metabolomics and (bio)chemical engineering.
  • Each ARISE Fellow will be hosted by an EMBL group or team of their choice at one of EMBL’s six sites (Barcelona, Grenoble, Hamburg, Heidelberg, Hinxton, or Rome) and will do secondments at partner organisations from industry or academia.

Role and responsibilities:

  • ARISE Fellow will be carrying out research work on a method or technology development project of choice. The technology developed should facilitate research in life sciences and should have a potential to be integrated in the service catalogues of research infrastructures.
  • The fellow will work in one or several diverse technology fields such as AI and machine learning, bioinformatics, (bio)chemical engineering, chemistry or chemical biology, computational modelling, software development, data management, data science, automation, detector development, X-ray optics, X-ray crystallography, high-precision mechanics, image analysis, Imaging, microscopy, microfluidics, robotics, and omics technologies.
  • The fellow should plan own project proposal already during the application phase for the Fellowship, discuss it with EMBL groups of interest, and include it in your application. The project should reflect interests and align with the expertise of the EMBL group or team that you wish to join, as well as the research focus of the ARISE partner organisation in which you wish to complete your secondment.

Requirements:

  • A University degree in natural sciences or related STEM disciplines (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and a PhD degree.
  • At least four years of full-time equivalent research experience (in technology development) in STEM fields, a high level of skills (postdoctoral standard) or expertise in a specialisation in which doctoral degrees are not usually awarded.
  • Experience can be both in academia or non-academic sectors, but must be relevant to the research fields of EMBL groups and teams that are participating in the programme.
  • Experience relevant to technology development related to service provision
  • Strong scientific potential that can be shown through g., scientific publications, scientific software unique or problematic data sets, technical documentation or similar, contributions to patents, examples of management of technology development projects or detailed description of any other innovative research.
  • Fluency in English (written and oral) and excellent communication skills
  • Demonstrated experience in collaborative working

Applications:

Apply online and upload the following:

  • CV (including the full list of your publications and relevant awards).
  • Any relevant certificate (e.g., PhD, MSc, BSc, other relevant certificate(s)).
  • Project proposal (including the ethics self-assessment).
