EMBO stands for excellence in the life sciences. We support talented researchers at all stages of their careers in Europe and beyond, stimulate the exchange of scientific information, and help build a research environment where scientists can achieve their best work.
A core programme of EMBO since the 1960s, EMBO Fellowships have benefited thousands of early career scientists. Life scientists actively seek EMBO Postdoctoral Fellowships to fund and support their international careers. Approximately 300 scientists also benefit each year from EMBO Short-Term Fellowships, returning to their home laboratories with new skills as well as contacts for future collaborations.
The EMBO Postdoctoral Fellowship Programme is currently undergoing a major transition, from awarding EMBO Fellows directly with a stipend to concluding contracts with fellows' host institutions (universities and research institutes) that provide fellows with an employment contract.
The Accounts Officer provides accounting and bookkeeping services for all areas of EMBO. An important part of the advertised role will be to assist in managing the financial transactions, documentation, accounting and controlling of the Postdoctoral Fellowship scheme.
The EMBO offices are located on the international EMBL life science research campus in Heidelberg, Germany. Heidelberg, home to around 150,000 people, is a vibrant university city offering a high quality of life. EMBO is an inclusive, equal opportunity employer offering attractive conditions and benefits appropriate to an international science organisation. The remuneration package comprises a competitive salary, pension scheme and health insurance, and educational and other family-related benefits. As a non-profit organisation, we have an informal and collegial working environment that is inspired by our dedication to working for a common greater good.
The Accounts Officer reports to the Head of Finance and Administration.
