The Pasteur Museum is housed in the apartment where Louis Pasteur spent his final seven years and offers a rare behind-the-scenes look at the living and working environment of the world-renowned scientist. Visitors can gain a unique insight into his everyday life alongside his wife and can admire his rich and diverse scientific work.
The Institut Pasteur’s scientific strategy focuses on developing original and innovative topics and promoting interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary cooperation and approaches. The Institut Pasteur teams have access to the technological resources needed to speed up and further improve the quality of their outstanding research.
Ever since the introduction of the world’s first "Technical Microbiology" course in 1889, teaching has been a priority for the Institut Pasteur. The Institut Pasteur has an international reputation for quality teaching that attracts students from all over the world who come to further their training or top up their degree programs.
The mission of the Industrial Partnership team is to detect, promote, assist and protect the inventive activities from research (inventions, know-how and biological materials) conducted at the Institut Pasteur (and in some Institutes of its international network), and transfer there to industrial and/or institutional partners, in order to serve the patient needs and for the benefit of the society, as well as to contribute to sustainability of the Institut Pasteur’s resources.
With international courses, PhD and postdoctoral traineeship, each institute of the Institut Pasteur International Network (RIIP) contributes to the transmission of knowledge with the training of young researchers all around the world. In this context, doctoral and postdoctoral programmes, study and traineeship fellowships are available to scientists. Alongside training, dynamism and attractiveness of RIIP will result in the creation of 4-year group for the young researchers.
The 2014-2015 call for enrollment of students in October 2015 is open.
Candidates are advised to read carefully the Application information section for details on the application procedures.
The titles of PhD projects and the names of the laboratory heads and thesis directors are listed below. For each project, there is a direct link to a description of the project proposal with contact information. The first step is to apply to the thesis director of the project(s) of interest by sending a CV and a letter of motivation. You may apply to more than one since each thesis director must choose just one candidate to present to the Admissions committee.
Laboratories may be contacted from now until November 7th, the sooner the better. The full applications, prepared jointly by the candidate and the laboratory, are due November 21. Interviews of selected candidates will take place February 10-13, 2015. Start of the Ph.D.: October 1st, 2015.
