NIH Hosts French Post-docs

CNRS and the NIH labs are planning to set up a training program for postdoctoral researchers. CNRS Director General Arnold Migus, and Elias Zerhouni, director of the American NIH (National Institutes of Health) signed a letter of intent to this end on October 1st in Bethesda (Maryland, US). This multidisciplinary program, called the “NIH-CNRS Research Career Transition Award,” will enable young French researchers who hold a PhD to spend three years in an NIH lab, paid by NIH, and then to return to a French lab for two years, paid by CNRS. There will be a call for applications once a year. The applicants will be selected by a Franco-American panel of experts. The program could also be the first step in a lasting collaboration between the two countries’ host labs, thus strengthening an already productive cooperation between NIH and CNRS.
