3rd ARISE Call for researchers and engineers to advance technology and methods in life sciences, EMBL


Careers in research infrastructures (core facilities, data resources, service teams, large instrumentation) are on the rise and are an excellent alternative to the classical academic career. They allow you to use your scientific expertise and academic freedom, without the pressure to necessarily become a professor.

Through ARISE, we hire you for three years at one of EMBLs six sites and let you work on a technology or method development project of your choice as part of one of the EMBL groups and teams. In parallel we organize a unique training that teaches you how to run service and manage teams, how to support users, manage their and your projects, and promote innovation.


When you leave, we expect that you will be qualified to take a senior position in core facilities, service teams, big research infrastructures, technology development groups in academia, industry, healthcare, or other sectors, or start your own service providing enterprise.

Scientists and engineers at RIs provide services to advanced technology to other researchers, improve technologies, and manage the service units. During your ARISE fellowship, you will learn these special skills and open doors to long term careers in service providing RIs in academia or in industry.
