Congratulations to C. Dessimoz, who has joined the EMBO Young Investigator network.

Twenty-five life scientists join EMBO Young Investigator network

EMBO announced Oct. 20, 2016 the selection of 25 young researchers as EMBO Young Investigators. They join a network of 74 current and 382 past Young Investigators who represent some of the best young group leaders in the life sciences in Europe and beyond.

 

“The EMBO Young Investigator Programme supports young life scientists in their most demanding career phase, when they establish their own research group,” says Maria Leptin, EMBO Director. “Each of the successful candidates has shown great potential to deliver world-class research, and we look forward to supporting them.”

 

The new Young Investigators represent 11 different countries, including – for the first time – India. In March this year, India became the second EMBC Associate Member State, which enables life scientists working in India to benefit from the full range of EMBO programmes.

 

The Young Investigator Programme provides support for researchers under forty years of age who have set up their first laboratories in the past four years. During their three-year tenure, EMBO Young Investigators receive a range of benefits, including an award of 15,000 euros and the opportunity to apply for additional funds to support the establishment of their first independent laboratories.

 

Laboratory management and non-scientific skills training as well as PhD courses offer the young group leaders and their students the chance to develop professional skills. The scientists also receive access to core facilities at EMBL and funding for themselves and their group members to attend conferences.

 

This year the programme received 211 applications, and 12 per cent of the candidates who applied were selected.

 

The next application deadline is 1 April 2017. More information can be found athttp://www.embo.org/funding-awards/young-investigators
