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 25 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.
