Laboratory of Excellence in Research on Medication and Innovative Therapeutics PhD Fellowships
The LERMIT is launching a call for proposal for 3‐year PhD Fellowships.
These fellowships concern the scope of the Doctoral Schools 582(Cancer), 569(Therapeutic Innovation) and 571(Chemistry) of the University Paris Saclay.
The Laboratory of Excellence in Research on Medication and Innovative Therapeutics (LERMIT) is an interdisciplinary laboratory composed of highprofile biologists, chemists and physico-chemists joining their forces to collectively explore new therapeutic avenues. Our common goal is to combat three major classes of diseases presenting a continuous threat to the society: cancer, cardiovascular diseases, and infectious and immune diseases. To achieve this goal, our joined effort is directed towards: 1) a better understanding of the molecular mechanisms causing these diseases; 2) the discovery of new therapeutic targets; 3) the design and development of new medications to treat - or block the progression of - these diseases; 4) the development of new strategies for improved targeting and delivery of the medications at the disease site; 5) an improved efficacy of current therapeutics. The LERMIT’s general objectives and the list of the 16 partner laboratories are detailed on our website.
The LERMIT is launching a call for proposal for 3-year PhD fellowships. Three fellowships will be funded, starting from October 2016.
Candidates of any nationality, with strong track record, must hold a Master Degree (or equivalent) or obtain it before October 1st, 2016. We seek motivated creative students with a strong interest for interdisciplinarity in the field of Medication and Therapeutics.
