2015 Pasteur Institute Doctoral Grants for French and Foreign Scientists

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.

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.

The applicant should hold a Masters degree or equivalent diploma (completion of 5 years of higher education). Applicants who have already begun their thesis may not apply.

3 years

The program is open to all nationalities

Funding covers living and insurance expenses (€1,400 net per month). One return fare between the home country and internship location is also funded.

Call for applications:           
One call for applications per year from January to the beginning of September.

Closing date for applications: September 30th 2015.
