Funding to carry out a thesis within the Pasteur Network outside metropolitan France
The Calmette & Yersin program support students to carry out their thesis in a Pasteur Network institute outside metropolitan France.
The subject of the thesis may concern all the themes developed in the laboratories of the Pasteur Network institutes: infectious physiopathology, immunology, microbiology, epidemiology, virology, parasitology, public health activities, etc.
These doctoral grants aim to promote the mobility of young scientists; the doctoral internship must therefore be carried out outside the country in which the university studies were carried out. Doctoral students must be enrolled at a French or foreign university (local or otherwise) and the doctoral school to which the host laboratory is affiliated.
The candidate must hold a Master2 or equivalent degree. Candidates who have already started their thesis cannot apply.
Open to all nationalities.
The application must also include (section "Personality (s) supporting the application"):
• One or two recommandation letters
• Letter from your PhD supervisor
• The opinion of the director of the host institute
Any incomplete application by the deadline will be rejected.
A Selection Committee allocates doctoral grants based on the project's relevance, the objectives and the application itself. The first step is to find a host laboratory : check the Pasteur Network DATABASE, a unique reference base accessible by institutions, scientific staff and projects: http://databaseriip.pasteur.fr
IMPORTANT: before submitting his application, the candidate must imperatively define, with the host laboratory, scientific project and starting date of the training.
