Postdoctoral Grants, for postdoctoral traineeships within the Institut Pasteur International Network: Calmette and Yersin Programme 

Aim:

The Institut Pasteur Department of International Affairs finances postdoctoral fellowships each year to promote and facilitate postdoctoral traineeships for French and foreign researchers within an institute of the Institut Pasteur International Network (RIIP) outside metropolitan France.

Subject matter:

Any subject covered by RIIP institute laboratories: research into infectious diseases (infectious physiopathology, immunology, microbiology, epidemiology, virology, parasitology) and public health activities (diagnosis, monitoring, resistance, etc.).

Eligibility criteria:

These postdoctoral grants aim to promote mobility with the arrival in a new environment. The postdoctoral traineeship is therefore conducted in an institution where the candidate does not yet work, outside the home country and outside the country in which the person attended university. 

Qualification: 

The candidate must have a PhD. Applicants who have already begun their postdoctoral traineeship may not apply.

Duration:

2 years

Nationality: 

All nationalities

Funding:

Fixed-term local contract with social charges covering living expenses and insurance (net amount of B1,900 per month) and a return air ticket between the country of origin and traineeship location.

Call for applications:

One call for applications each year open from January to May.

 

The first step is to find a host laboratory in the Institut Pasteur International Network.

See the Database RIIP

IMPORTANT: before submitting his application, the candidate must imperatively define, with the host laboratory, scientific project and starting date of the training.
