PhD grants




Our PhD grants are available for students who apply for a PhD fellowship through the "concours" of one of the ten doctoral schools affiliated to PSL-Qlife (see the list below). Each doctoral school chooses a student with a project in quantitative biology, and whose host lab is a PSL-Qlife member. All ten candidates give an oral presentation of his/her PhD project to a jury composed of members of the steering committee. Two fellowships are provided. One should take note that competing for a PSL-Qlife fellowship is an additional opportunity and doesn’t prevent from competing at the doctoral school.
