Pasteur Fellowship Program
Three calls for applicants for the Pasteur Fellowship Program will be held in 2008. The next application deadline is Friday, February 8, 2008. Candidates are notified in April and must begin fellowship by December 1, 2008.

Spring Deadline is Friday, May 9, 2008; candidates are notified in July and must begin fellowship by March 1, 2009

In collaboration with the Institut Pasteur, the Pasteur Foundation runs a program to bring U.S. post-doctoral researchers to work in Institut Pasteur laboratories in Paris thanks to the generosity of U.S. donors. Guided by the institute’s administration which seeks to develop international scientific exchanges to ensure the vitality and quality of Institut Pasteur labs, this program is for American citizens and does not apply to candidates already in France.
The fellowships are $70,000 ($55,000 fellowship plus $15,000 bench fees to support the research) per year for a term of three years and are not renewable. Financing for the second and third years is contingent upon positive annual review by the host lab head.
Candidates are expected to commit to a three-year stay.
