The Institute of Microbiology, Bioenergies and Biotechnology (IM2B) is financing 2 Ph.D. positions starting in October 2021.
This Institute brings together the largest French network of world-class molecular microbiologists. It aims to explore the diversity and functioning of the microbial world, at the molecular, cellular and ecosystem levels, or through its close association with other organisms (plants, microbiota, etc.), with a view to developing innovative biotechnological solutions in the fields of bioenergies, environment and health.
The five PhD projects described below are eligible for funding under this call for applications. They are interdisciplinary projects based on inter-laboratory collaborations. For each of the projects, the co-supervisors will select one applicant who will be interviewed by a jury. The audition will be held in English between the 14th and 18th of June. At the end of the audition, two applicants will be selected and will be granted with a 3-year fellowship (salary of €1421 net / month). The two awarded doctoral students will be granted €4,000 to attend international conferences or to follow training related to their research project. In addition, through the Plinius doctoral programme, they will benefit from personalised support to train in a wide range of cutting-edge technologies and prepare their professional project in an international and multidisciplinary environment.
