EMBL-EBI is Europe's leading provider of information services to biological researchers in academia and industry. An important part of this service is its highly regarded training programme, which offers on-site, off-site and online training to life scientists world-wide and contributes significantly to EMBL’s overall course and conference offering.
Training is a core part of EMBL-EBI’s mission, and the success of our training programme depends on the post-holder being able to work effectively with others throughout and beyond EMBL-EBI, supporting them to deliver excellent training and to feed back the needs of users to developers.

S/he will deliver a training programme that is scientifically balanced and engaging, reflects the full spectrum of services offered by EMBL-EBI, and evolves in parallel with users’ needs. S/he will ensure that courses are organised and delivered to the highest possible standard and that opportunities to enhance the programme through strategic collaboration with others, throughout EMBL and beyond, are embraced. To fulfil this role effectively, the post-holder will be expected to familiarise him- or herself with EMBL-EBI’s major resources and tools, keep up to date with current trends in the molecular life sciences, and understand how life scientists use bioinformatics resources and tools to solve research problems. S/he will also be expected to keep up with the latest learning methodologies and their application to professional development.
