EMBL International PhD Scholarships 2021/22 – United Kingdom

Applications are invited for Fully Funded EMBL International PhD Scholarships at the University of Cambridge, United Kingdom.


Established in 1983, the EMBL International PhD Scholarships Programme provides students with the best starting platform for a successful career in science. Characterised by first-class training, internationality, dedicated mentoring and early independence in research, it is among the world’s most competitive PhD training schemes.

EMBL-EBI provides a highly collaborative, interdisciplinary environment in which research and data service provision are closely allied. We are a world leader in bioinformatics, at the centre of global efforts to collect and disseminate biological information. We share a campus with the Wellcome Sanger Institute, 20 km (11 miles) south of Cambridge in the United Kingdom. EMBL-EBI’s PhD students are all part of the EMBL International PhD Programme, and also are registered with the University of Cambridge and enjoy all the benefits of University membership.


The EMBL International PhD Scholarships offer full funding, including University fees and maintenance stipend.


EMBL International PhD Scholarships welcome applications from highly qualified students of all nationalities. Applicants must hold, or anticipate receiving before enrolment, a university degree that would formally qualify them to enter a PhD or equivalent programme in the country where the degree was obtained. All applications need to be supported by a minimum of two academic reference letters and are evaluated solely on the basis of qualification and scientific potential.

Proficiency in English, both written and verbal, is a prerequisite to enter the EMBL International PhD Programme.


Applications will need to be submitted via the EMBL applications website to be considered. For further information please refer to https://www.embl.de/training/eipp/application/index.html or contact EMBL-EBI Research Office at roffice@ebi.ac.uk
