Call for proposals dédicated to Young Investigators

The LabEx IGO launches each year a call for Young Investigators who do not hold any permanent position.

The aim of this call is to provide small grants (€10K) to young investigators of one of the 15 partner teams of the LabEx IGO to carry out a specific project enabling them to strengthen their CV before applying for a permanent position. The proposed projects can be either emergent (i.e. demonstrating the proof of concept for a new idea with a leverage effect for further funding) or about a new aspect of a current project (new hypothesis, needs to use an alternative technology, short mobility in order to acquire new technical skills in another laboratory, etc.). The main objective of the LabEx IGO with that call is to significantly support the early career of the researcher.
Five calls for projects will be launched over the period 2020-2024 (one per year) to fund two projects per year. The selection based on application is performed by the Young Investigators Scientific Committee :  Nicolas Boisgerault (U1232 CRCINA), Divi Cornec (U1227 LBAI), Laure Michel (U1236 MICMAC) and Jeremie Poschmann (U1064 CRTI).
