Research at EMBL-EBI is heavily computational. Our expectation is that our research groups will continue to function as normally, while working from home.


Recruiting continues during COVID-19

As we play our part in tackling the current coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, EMBL-EBI’s highest priority is to ensure the continued health and wellbeing of our colleagues and candidates.

We are continuing to recruit new candidates and new employees will be temporarily onboarded remotely until it is safe to return to our offices.
