Call for students applications. Academic year 2021-2022
In the framework of the Chemistry Biology Health (CBH) Graduate School of Université Grenoble Alpes, the GRAL research programme funds MSc (Master 2) research scholarships.
We seek motivated candidates planning to:
- attend one of the following Master programmes (2nd year MSc / Master 2 / M2) at Université Grenoble Alpes (taught in English):
- Master in Biology:
- Master in Plant Biology: PLANTA International
- & do a research internship in Integrated & Structural Cell Biology at one of the labs associated with the GRAL programme in Grenoble: IBS, LPCV, BioSsanté, and LCBM (see list of possible projects below).
A maximum of 6 GRAL scholarships of 8 000 € are offered to cover the academic year from September 2021 to June 2022, which includes 4 months of courses and 6 months of research internship.
The call is open to EU and non-EU students.
The candidates must send their application in a unique pdf file to anne-mathilde.thierry _at_ ibs.fr (e-mail subject: M2-2021-LastName) before May 14th 2021 (23:59, CET), including:
- A cover letter indicating the selected MSc programme at Université Grenoble Alpes, and 2 choices (ranked) for the 6-month research internship project
- A CV
- Diplomas and copies of academic transcripts for the last 2 academic years (translated to French or English if appropriate)
- For non-native English speakers, level of language proficiency (e.g. TOEIC, Bulats, etc.)
- One letter of recommendation
- E-candidate portal application number
We strongly recommend that the candidates take contact with the potential supervisor(s) for the research project(s) of interest.
The applications will be evaluated by a selection committee composed of representatives of the GRAL Directory and the Master programmes.
The scholarship is conditional to the registration to one of the above programmes of the master’s degree in Biology of Université Grenoble Alpes, and to the recipient maintaining a satisfactory academic record in the programme. The admission to a 2nd year MSc programme (M2) at Université Grenoble Alpes is fully independent of the GRAL Scholarship. Application deadlines may differ between the different programmes. See admission requirements on Université Grenoble Alpes’s website: http://www.univ-grenoble-alpes.fr/fr/grandes-missions/formation/candidatures-et-inscriptions/
- Opening of the call for applications: March 1st 2021
- Applications must be submitted by May 14th 2021
- Results: June 2021
