Successful candidates will be hosted in the state-of-the-art facilities in the nodes operated by the host institutions in Szeged – University of Szeged, Biological Research Centre – or Budapest – Semmelweis University.
An initial contract of 5 years will be offered to successful candidates; this is foreseen to be extended to a maximum of 9 years, subject to an external, independent, international review.
These positions will be affiliated with both the H-CEMM and one of the above-mentioned host institutions.

H-CEMM is a game changer organisation which catalyses reforming changes in the research culture and makes impact in the regional development of Hungarian knowledge regions.
H-CEMM was created by the union of the University of Szeged, the Semmelweis University, Budapest and the Biological Research Centre, Szeged. They were joined by the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) as advanced scientific partner.
HCEMM is financially supported by the EU Program “H2020-EU.4.a. Teaming of excellent research institutions and low performing RDI regions” under the contract number No. 739593, and co-financed by the Hungarian Government and the Host Institutions.
