After being notified, selected participants should pay the course fee through the EMBO website.
Further, we advise selected participants to book travel as soon as possible after receiving notification, and to have proper travel insurance in place. The organizers cannot reimburse travel expenses should a participant be unable to attend the course due to sudden events (publicly enforced travel restrictions, closed borders, etc.).
We will choose applicants who show strong interest in microscopy, who can argue the need for electron microscopy methods in their research, and who show potential to make an impact in their field using the skills obtained at the practical course.
Based on the motivation letters, we will assess the following:
- The candidate’s need for electron microscopy methods to succeed in her/his project
- The impact on a candidate’s future career by being trained in electron microscopy
Candidates must submit a motivation letter no longer than one A4 page. The selected candidates are expected to be involved in a high-quality research project, as a PhD student, postdoc, or researcher, with or without some prior experience in electron microscopy. They should provide a concise background to this project, which is expected to have a strong microscopy aspect. It is important that candidates describe a need for one or more electron microscopy methods in this project.
