NeuroSchool, the Graduate School in Neuroscience of Aix-Marseille University (AMU), is offering to fully fund a one-year post-doctoral fellowship.

This one-year salary is intended for young neuroscience graduates who have completed their PhD at AMU (less than 3 years of experience after the thesis at the time of hiring) and who wish to work in a company linked to neuroscience in the South region. Its main objective is to promote the professional integration of young doctors.

As a company, if you are interested in this program, we invite you to submit a research project that we will propose to the candidates for this postdoctoral fellowship.

Traditionally, this call for tenders takes place in 3 stages.

  • the call for projects (until November 15, 2021)
  • call for applications (until January 3, 2022 : delayed until 30 January 2022)
  • auditions

From an administrative point of view, the postdoc hired in this way is an agent of Aix Marseille University and the company that hosts him or her undertakes to sign a hosting agreement, the model of which is available here.

Excellence projects will be selected by the committee according to the following criteria:

The selected projects will be posted on our website at the end of November, 2021.

The selection committee will select a maximum of ten applications in agreement with the project leaders. The opinion of the project leader on the candidates will be taken into account for their retention in the selection procedure.

Each candidate will be interviewed individually by the end of February 2022 (likely slightly delayed).
