The European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) is one of the highest ranked 
scientific research organisations in the world. The Headquarters Laboratory is 
located in Heidelberg (Germany), with additional sites in Grenoble (France), 
Hamburg (Germany), Hinxton (UK) and Monterotondo (Italy). 


The EMBL Szilard Library is a scientific library with extensive on-line 
resources and databases, subscribing to 250 (mostly electronic) active 
journals, 70 active monographic series and a collection of around 10,000 books. 
The library serves the 900 scientists working at EMBL and liaises with staff in 
three countries. The library uses the XML based library system by Inmagic and a 
self-tailored in-house classification system. The small library team of two 
enjoys supporting researchers in a pro-active and flexible manner within the 
framework of a very international research organisation. 


Applications are invited from students/graduates of library and information 
studies (LIS) for a three months traineeship (mid-June to mid-September). The 
traineeship offers an opportunity to gain a first-hand experience of working in 
a small academic library, getting involved in projects and contributing to 
additional library services. In particular there will be training in the 
provision of library services using the library system Inmagic (journal & book 
collection management, document delivery etc), data review & updates, stock 
review, updating the library webpage (using a CMS), as well as support in 
assessing marketing tools and strategy development. 


The ideal candidate is currently doing/has completed a degree in LIS, has good 
interpersonal, customer and IT skills and pays attention to detail. Working 
knowledge of English is essential.
