Research & Training

A commitment to leading Australian research

EMBL Australia creates opportunities to internationalise Australian research, empowering and training our best early-career researchers and research leaders.

Our unique model offers the brightest young research leaders up to nine years of security, enabling them to take risks and ask big questions.

We provide training programs in niche areas for Australian life science researchers and offer unique opportunities for Australian PhD students to get a head start in their scientific career and develop international networks in Europe.


Access to world-class infrastructure

Australia’s associate membership of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) gives all Australian researchers access to EMBL’s state-of-the-art scientific technologies, infrastructure and data resources – including tools not otherwise available in Australia.

EMBL’s scientific services encompass more than 40 bioinformatics and data resources and more than 20 experimental services in the fields of structural biology, imaging, genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, in vivo gene-editing and chemical biology.
