Postdoctoral Grants, Calmette and Yersin Programme
Each year the Department of International Affairs - Institut Pasteur International Network allocates funding to promote and aid completion of doctoral theses for both French and foreign scientists in institutes of the Institut Pasteur International Network located outside mainland France.
Postdoctoral Grants, for postdoctoral traineeships within the Institut Pasteur International Network: Calmette and Yersin Programme
The Department of International Affairs - Institut Pasteur International Network finances one postdoctoral scholarship 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.
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.).
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.
The candidate must have a PhD. Applicants who have already begun their postdoctoral traineeship may not apply.
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.
