Work in an international environment - Institut Pasteur

Work in an international environment

The Institut Pasteur is constantly strengthening its long-standing reputation on the international stage. In an era when the research landscape is experiencing fundamental changes, with a new emphasis on global health and "one health", our foundation recognizes the major role the Institut Pasteur International Network can play in driving forward its plans for the future. This network of 33 institutes is spread over 26 countries on every continent. We are stepping up cooperation within the network, and the Paris campus has a key role to play in these efforts. You will be encouraged to work in a multicultural setting and to develop your skills as you pursue your career within a rapidly changing environment.

Dialog between scientists and mobility within the network are strongly encouraged as a means of boosting professional development, enhancing personal appraisal processes and helping to secure funding for research programs.

The scientists that we recruit to permanent positions spend at least three months working at one of the institutes in the International Network during the first two years of their contract.

At the Institut Pasteur, several initiatives have been set up to offer career guidance to staff. The Human Resources Department is strengthening its role as a provider of services, advice and support to Institut Pasteur staff. It is continuing to optimize its processes and has introduced a range of career management services, including career development reviews and skills assessments.

The Human Resources Department has a specific team dedicated to career development and support for scientists. This team, composed of careers officers with scientific backgrounds, offers scientists one-to-one meetings and personal career guidance as well as organizing events (such as the "Beyond the PhD" round tables for PhD students and post-doctoral fellows) to help them develop their career plans.

Our Paris campus has staff members from 65 different countries – a huge advantage given the increasingly global nature of research. The gender equality among our staff and the wide range of ages represented are also a characteristic feature of the Institut Pasteur's identity.

Women currently represent 59% of our workforce, and 58.9% of those recruited in 2017 were women*. 16.5% of new employees in 2017 were under the age of 25.
