EMBL is Europe’s flagship laboratory for the life sciences – an intergovernmental organisation with more than 110 independent research groups and service teams covering the spectrum of molecular biology. It operates across six sites in Heidelberg (headquarters), Barcelona, Cambridge, Grenoble, Hamburg and Rome. Our mission is to perform basic research in molecular biology; train scientists, students and visitors at all levels; offer vital services to scientists in the public and private sectors within the member states; develop new instruments and methods; and engage actively in technology transfer.

EMBL is looking for a Strategy Officer to support activities in strategy development and deployment, planning and reporting. You will report to the Head of Strategy and work closely with the Director-General, other members of the Strategy team with significant interaction with people throughout the organisation. This role will support consultative processes involving stakeholders across the organisation as well as the identifying, developing and maintaining key indicators of performance and impact of the organisation. We are an international, friendly and supportive team, with ties to scientists and professionals throughout EMBL. This position can be located at any of the EMBL sites (space permitting), but will require some international travel, including regular travel to EMBL’s five other sites and occasional out-of-hours working.
