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.
FUNDING FOR COMPLETION OF A DOCTORAL THESIS WITHIN THE INSTITUT PASTEUR INTERNATIONAL NETWORK : CALMETTE AND YERSIN PROGRAM
The research topic can be related to any theme developed in laboratories at International Network institutes, such as infectious diseases (infectious pathophysiology, immunology, microbiology, epidemiology, virology, parasitology), and public health activities (diagnosis, surveillance, resistance, etc.).
Doctoral grants aim to promote mobility opportunities for young scientists. The doctoral internship should therefore be completed outside their home country or the country where they attended university.
Doctoral students should be enrolled at the doctoral school to which the host laboratory is affiliated, which can belong to a university in France or abroad.
One call for applications per year :
- Call for doctoral internship proposals : end of January
- Call for applications : end of March
- Closing date for applications : September 30th
- Selection Committee meeting : beginning of October
- Decision notice : by mid-November
