Scientist in Residence

Welcome to Sydney

We host international scientists on a mini-sabbatical to work more closely with our team at the EMBL Australia Node in Single Molecule Science (SMS) at UNSW. Scientists in Residence are invited by SMS Group Leaders to exchange ideas, develop collaborations, and take advantage of our facilities, which includes a suite of powerful imaging tools.

The objectives of Scientist in Residence is to strengthen ties with researchers internationally; to mutually enrich our research programs via collaborations; and to provide an introduction to visitors to our gorgeous city.

We encourage our Scientists in Residence to bring their families to explore Sydney’s abundant sun, surf, national parks, stunning harbour, and so much more.
