FP-DYNAMO-PARIS COFUND Fellowship Programme

Closing Date: 17/11/2021

Fellowship programme offering promising experienced researchers an interdisciplinary environment and a fundamental research initiative in the centre of Paris to train them in the field of physico-chemical biology.

The FP-DYNAMO-PARIS COFUND Fellowship Programme was established by the DYNAMO Laboratory of Excellence (LabEx), consisting of three major French institutions, the Institut de Biologie Physico-Chimique (IBPC), the École Normale Supérieure (ENS) and the Collège de France (CdF).

The programme is co-funded by the DYNAMO Laboratory of Excellence and the European Union, under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action (grant agreement No 101034407).

The goal of the programme is to bring new conceptual advances in environmental and health sciences by recruiting promising experienced researchers (ERs) to the Labex DYNAMO consortium with a selection process that combines excellence and inclusivity to choose promising post-docs; by providing them with both a professional opportunity to further their scientific projects, improve their personal skills and create networking opportunities to reinforce their profiles; and by preparing them to face the challenges of their future career positions when they will have research teams of their own.

To this end, their research activity will be accompanied by opportunities to expand their skillset with personalised mentoring, outreach programmes and dedicated courses. Part of the training programme will include a retreat at the University of Padova, training courses in leadership by EMBO, lectures on intellectual property and entrepreneurship and mentoring on gender-balance ethical issues and leadership.

FP-DYNAMO-PARIS fellows will explore the energy conversion machineries developed by microorganisms across evolution (from gene expression and genome organisation to the final assembly of the macromolecular photosynthetic complex in cellular membranes). Fellows will be trained in state-of-the-art techniques and will acquire expertise in genomics, genetics, photobiology, biophysics, biochemistry, structural biology, and learn how to synthesise new materials and equipment needed for research in the field of bioenergy.
