Shanghai Pasteur Institute Offer

An agreement between the universities Paris Diderot and Paris Descartes on the one hand and the Pasteur Institute of Shanghai on the other hand was signed in December 2017.

As a result of this agreement, three teams from the Shanghai Pasteur Institute became teams from the BioSPC doctoral school. The Pasteur Institute's trusteeship is the Chinese Academy of Sciences, which has university status.

The Shanghai Pasteur Institute can therefore welcome French doctoral students who will be enrolled at the Paris Diderot University or the Paris Descartes University and who will carry out their thesis work at the Shanghai Pasteur Institute in one of the three teams under the supervision of a Chinese researcher. The rules governing the preparation of the thesis are the same as those applied to French teams. PhD students will obtain a USPC - Paris Diderot thesis or a USPC - Paris Descartes thesis identical to that obtained by PhD students in France. There will also be a thesis from the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

The Pasteur Institute of Shanghai has launched an international call for proposal for the financing of theses under this agreement. Click here to access this call.

Please note that the deadline for applications is: 31 March 2018
