Institut Pasteur CALMETTE AND YERSIN Doctoral Fellowships 2021


Each year the Institut Pasteur Department of International Affairs allocates funding to promote and aid completion of doctoral theses for both French and foreign scientists in institutes within the Institut Pasteur International Network located outside mainland France.

Funding for completion of a doctoral thesis within the Institut Pasteur International Network : Calmette and Yersin program

Aim :

The Institut Pasteur Department of International Affairs allocates fundings to promote and facilitate the realization of theses of researchers primarily from low- and middle-income countries,  in an institute within the Institut Pasteur International Network outside 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 depending on the salary scales of the host institute.
