Postdoctoral Grants, for postdoctoral traineeships within the Institut Pasteur International Network: Calmette and Yersin Programme



The Institut Pasteur Department of International Affairs finances postdoctoral fellowships 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.).


Eligibility criteria:


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).

IMPORTANT: before submitting his application, the candidate must imperatively define, with the host laboratory, scientific project and starting date of the training.
