To carry out their activities, Research Teams of the Frédéric Joliot Institute for Life Sciences have developed high-profile technological platforms in many areas : biomedical imaging, structural biology, metabolomics, High-Throughput screening, level 3 microbiological safety laboratory...
Within the Institute, the "Funding Research and Technology Transfer" team is at your disposal to identify the scientists and the skills you need to set up a joint project, to define the terms of a collaboration contract or study.
Whether you are an academic, a SME or an industrialist, our team informs and advices you about the possibilities of consortium assembly, technology transfer, patent licensing or use of our platforms.
The team is also at the disposal of the researchers of the institute to accompany them in achieving their valorization objectives.
Frédéric Joliot Institute for Life Sciences permanently receives and prepares approximately 120 doctoral students.Find here a photography of Institute's doctoral students.
Approximately 40 french and foreign students start a doctoral thesis in our laboratories every year. These doctoral students enrols mostly in Paris-Sud University/ Paris-Saclay University but also in other universities in Paris (Paris-Descartes University, Pierre-et-Marie-Curie University, Paris-Diderot University, Sorbonne Nouvelle University and Paris-Est University) and elsewhere in France (Bordeaux University, Caen-Normandie University, Montpellier University).
In agreement with the Institute's multidisciplinarity, doctoral students are distributed in about twenty doctoral schools, but four of them, all attached to the Paris-Sud University / Paris-Saclay University, bring together nearly 70% of the doctoral students we receive :
Doctoral students of the Institute can be financed in different ways: on 1st July 2017, 27% of them have a doctorate contract with the university and 16% of them have a CEA research training contract. Finally, the dynamism of the Teams in seeking their own funding is reflected by the fact that 57% of the doctors of the institute receive funding from laboratories (CEA or others).
