The C-BRAINS international PhD program is launching its call for applications for 13 doctoral contracts, including 5 provided by the Paris Brain Institute.

On February 16, 2022, the Île-de-France Regional Council voted to create 9 new Major Innovation and Research Domains (DIM). The C-BRAINS project, a DIM dedicated to Neuroscience and Cognitive Sciences in the Paris Region, launched in partnership with the Paris Brain Institute, FNP (Fondation des Neurosciences de Paris) and the CEA, has been selected for a funding over the period 2022-2026.

One of the main objectives of C-BRAINS is to contribute to the training of a new generation of researchers in neuroscience and cognitive science while reinforcing the attractiveness and visibility of research in the Paris region at the highest international level.

In this context, C-BRAINS is launching a new international doctoral program, aimed at students currently studying for a master’s degree outside of France, to complete a doctoral project within the scientific and regional scope of the DIM. Thus, in total, no less than 13 doctoral contracts will be distributed in 2023, 5 of which will be allocated by the Paris Brain Institute.

This competitive program will offer an attractive remuneration over 3 years, a bonus and assistance in settling in Ile-de-France, a budget for equipment/training/missions, an expanded training offer as well as a specific and competitive call for tenders for the financing of a 4th year thesis.

Thesis projects by research teams must be submitted by January 10, 2023 (link). Candidates will then be able to see the projects and apply from January 16.
