Funding for completion of a doctoral thesis within the Institut Pasteur International Network : Calmette and Yersin program
The research topic can be related to any theme developed in laboratories at International Network institutes, such as infectious diseases (infectious pathophysiology, immunology, microbiology, epidemiology, virology, parasitology), and public health activities (diagnosis, surveillance, resistance, etc.).
Doctoral grants aim to promote mobility opportunities for young scientists. The doctoral internship should therefore be completed outside their home country or the country where they attended university.
Doctoral students should be enrolled at the doctoral school to which the host laboratory is affiliated, which can belong to a university in France or abroad.
The applicant should hold a Masters degree or equivalent diploma (completion of 5 years of higher education). Applicants who have already begun their thesis may not apply.
The program is open to all nationalities
Funding covers living and insurance expenses (€1,400 net per month). One return fare between the home country and internship location is also funded.
Call for applications:
One call for applications per year from January to the beginning of September.
A Selection Committee allocates doctoral grants based on the project's relevance, the internship objectives and the application itself.
