Preparations used will include: invertebrate preparations (tunicates, molluscan neurones), zebra fish, mammalian brain slices, Fucus, Arabidopsis, and cell lines.
Students at the course will be invited to display a small poster of their current research and time will be allocated for presentation and discussion.
There is usually a 3:1 ratio of applications to places, and there will be up to 20 places on the course.
Please submit the Application Form by email, attaching your Curriculum Vitae and Research Project (giving a concise description of your research, your reasons for wishing to attend and your experience of techniques taught on the course) and PDF copy of a signed Letter of Recommendation on organisation letterheaded notepaper from an academic referee, preferably PhD supervisor or Head of Laboratory. This letter should indicate how your research, the laboratory in which you work and the area of research that you intend to pursue will benefit from your participation on the course.
Please send these three parts to arrive no later than 15 January 2014: email@example.com
Applicants who are visa dependent will need to apply for tourist visas. Letters will be provided to those in need of supporting visa documentation.
There will be a registration fee for students accepted on the course of 400 Euros, but it may be possible to waive this fee in case of difficulty in paying, particularly for students from Eastern Europe. Accommodation, breakfast and lunches are included. Students who wish to request help towards fees should clearly indicate this in their application, and in their covering letter. However, candidates from industry who are accepted as students will be required to pay 1000 euro to the MBA.
A very limited amount of funding for students’ travel costs will be available. This will be distributed according to country of origin, following EMBO guidelines. Students who wish to claim travel expenses should clearly indicate this in their application.
Each day, there will be two lectures in the morning (probably 9.00 and 11.00), then practical work, and a lecture in the early evening, probably 6 pm.
