For its first edition in 2011, the Institut Pasteur will finance one postdoctoral fellowship for a duration of two years to allow young researchers to be trained in an institute of the Institut Pasteur International Network (RIIP) except metropolitan France. This fellowship aims at promoting and facilitating French and foreign researchers to have postdoctoral traineeship in a laboratory of the RIIP. Postdoctoral traineeship areas may include all themes developed in the laboratories of the RIIP: research and surveillance of infectious diseases (physiopathology, immunology, microbiology, epidemiology, virology, parasitology).
The applicant must have a PhD and be less than 35 years old. A Selection Committee will decide on the allocation of this postdoctoral fellowship according to the relevance of the project, the goals of the training and on the file of the candidates. Before applying for the fellowship, candidates have to find a host laboratory in the international network and a project.
Application deadline: July 10, 2011.
