Program

The LabexMER partners have created a new post-doctoral program, inspired by successful similar programs such as the U.S.A. NOAA Climate Change and Global Change postdoctoral program or WHOI postdoctoral fellowship. It allows young scientists to propose their own research project in marine sciences (within the LabexMER research axes) to be carried out in one or several LabexMER laboratories.  The competitive awards are designed to further the education and training of the applicant with primary emphasis placed on the individual's research promise and relevance to Labex Mer research Axis.

The postdoctoral appointment is for a period of two years. Recipients of the awards will receive a net salary of about 2200€ per month. In addition, support is available for travel expenses, equipment, and supplies. Work contract will include national health and dental insurance, as well as retirement and unemployment benefits.

Application

The applicants needs to hold a PhD. They have to submit an original research project relevant to one of the Labex research priorities, and propose collaboration with a local host.  The local host(s) should be affiliated to one of the LabexMER laboratories and be responsible for providing adequate office and laboratory space for the duration of the postdoctoral tenure. Please note that applications can only be accepted via the online application system within the announced application period.
