EMBL Australia Partnership PhD Program 

Professor James Whisstock

We are delighted to announce the commencement of the EMBL Australia Partnership PhD Program.  We are all very excited at the opportunity for attracting Australia’s and the world’s best and brightest young scientists to pursue interdisciplinary careers in the top life science research groups in Australia.

EMBL Australia was created to maximise the benefits of Australia's membership of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory.  We are dedicated to promoting excellence in the life sciences through research projects, infrastructure and collaboration across Australia and the world.

The European Molecular Biology Laboratory is at the forefront of innovation in life sciences research, technology development and transfer, and provides outstanding training and education. In these regards, the EMBL PhD training scheme is one of the most competitive to enter; EMBL PhD students are provided with a world class starting platform, ensuring the best possible start to a successful career in science. We are pleased that EMBL Australia can now offer entry into such a prestigious program.

One of the best ways to achieve this goal is to motivate and foster talented young scientists; to mentor them and turn them into skilled, creative leaders. Accordingly, we are calling for applications to our inaugural PhD Program, modelled along EMBL’s own PhD program, for enrolment in Australia’s leading research universities and to explore the opportunities we have available at our nodes Australian wide.

Kind regards,

James Whisstock
