i-Bio will allocate 3 post-doctoral fellowships for a duration of 12 to 16 months. The working period will start at the earliest on September 1st 2023 and end at the latest on December 31st 2024.

Post-doc projects should be written in English using the form downloadable here. Proposals must be returned by email to before April 17, 2023 at 1 pm

  • The project must be truly interdisciplinary. It should address a biological question by integrating conceptual and methodological approaches from other scientific disciplines (computer sciences, chemistry, engineering, mathematics and physics).
  • The project will be presented by two teams. The coordinator’s team should belong to the IBPS or the IFM. There is no restriction on the affiliation of the partner’s team. Note that the teams that already benefit from an i-Bio support are eligible to this call.
  • The coordinator and the partner can belong to the same unit but not to the same team.
  • Each coordinator and partner can be involved in only one project.

Each proposal will be evaluated by a selection committee composed of external peer reviewers, chosen for their scientific expertise related to the projects being evaluated. The evaluation criteria are the strength of interdisciplinarity, the scientific quality and originality of the project and the complementarity of the collaboration. Results will be published at the end of April. The selected projects will be funded up to a maximum of 73.5 k€ (corresponding to 55 k€/year). It is not required to have an identified candidate before applying to this call but we would like to draw your attention to the fact that it takes 3 months to establish a working contract at Sorbonne University and that the contract must end at the latest on December 31st 2024.
