Applications for the 2017 EMBL Australia PhD Course are now closed.

Sixty outstanding first and second year PhD students from around Australia will attend the 4th EMBL Australia PhD Course in Melbourne. The two-week residential course will be held at Monash University’s Clayton campus between July 9 and 21.

Modelled on the compulsory pre-doc training program of the prestigious European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), the course covers a wide range of topics – from epigenetics and bioinformatics to translational and clinical sciences – exposing students to the latest ideas in molecular biology.

Sessions held by international guest speakers and researchers from around Australia will provide students with an overview of the full range of life science research and infrastructure available in Australia, as well as useful tools and ideas for their projects and a network of scientific contacts across the country.

There are no course fees and once students are in Melbourne, EMBL Australia will provide accommodation and most meals.

Applications for the 2017 PhD Course are now closed.
