COFUND DOCTORAL PROGRAM: 12 PHD POSITIONS OPEN IN OCTOBER 2016. Institut Curie is recruiting 12 PhD students through its international program called IC-3i PhD program.
This program provides PhD students with a 3-year fellowship, a high level interdisciplinary, inter-sectorial, and international training with dedicated career development plans, secondments and mentoring.The IC-3i international Phd Program is a PhD fellowship program partly funded by the European Commission under the Cofund scheme of Horizon 2020’s Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions.The aim is to recruit motivated students for 12 PhD projects who will be starting their PhD in October 2016 at Institut Curie bringing together a world-class multidisciplinary cancer research center and a model hospital.
|Subject areas||Biology & Chemistry of Radiations, Cell Signaling & Cancer; Development, Cancer, Genetics & Epigenetics; Integrative Tumour Biology, Immunology & Environment and Multiscale Physics-Biology-Chemistry & Cancer|
|Deadline||February 4th 2016, 17:00 CET|
PhD research projects in life sciences cover Institut Curie’s main research domains:
- Biology & Chemistry of Radiations, Cell Signaling & Cancer,
- Development, Cancer, Genetics & Epigenetics,
- Integrative Tumour Biology, Immunology & Environment,
- Multiscale Physics-Biology-Chemistry & Cancer
Institut Curie brings together a world-class multidisciplinary cancer research center and a model hospital group in Paris and surroundings. By embracing cross-disciplinary approaches, it drives the discovery of more effective treatments and leads to improved patient care.
