Thesis proposals 2022-2023

The IBS hosts on average 50 PhD students who are either selected via national Doctoral Schools and International PhD programs (CEA) or financed by external grants from ANR, EU2020 and private fondations.

Financement CEA

The CEA offers students high-level doctoral training and IBS’s laboratories participate in this program. A diverse array of research topics is available and encompasses the following domains : environmental sciences and host-pathogen interactions, structural biology and biophysics and technologies for health and medicine. More information about the CEA PhD program and about CEA thesis proposals for the 2022-2023 academic year are available on the INST website.

Direct access to the IBS thesis subjects eligible for funding or cofinancing by the CEA in 2022-2023 :
- Remodeling of cell Glycocalyx Heparan sulfate by extracellular sulfatases Sulfs ( SL-DRF-22-0427 project details) - Contact : R. Vivès (IBS/SAGAG)
- Molecular bases of a multiprotein assembly linking membrane biology to stress adaptation in enterobacteria (SL-DRF-22-0391 project details) - Contact : I. Gutsche (IBS/MICA)

This list is under construction.

Successful candidates will start their thesis in the fall of 2022.

Ministerial and Regional Funding

Ministerial and regional funding of PhD fellowships is also possible via the Doctoral Schools of the Université Grenoble Alpes. The IBS is affiliated with the School of Physics and the School of Chemistry and Life Sciences.

The next session for applications will take place mid 2022. Details of IBS thesis projects for 2022-2023 will be dispatched soon on the Doctoral Schools’ websites :
- Doctoral School in Physics : Ecole Doctorale de Physique de Grenoble
- Doctoral School in Chemistry and Life Sciences : Ecole Doctorale de Chimie et Sciences du Vivant (EDCSV)

GRAL funding

In the framework of the recently funded EUR “Grenoble Graduate School in Chemistry, Biology and Health” (CBH-EUR-GS), the LABEX-GRAL funds PhD scholarships in GRAL labs of the IRIG institute (IBS, BCI, BGE, CBM, and PCV).

Informations about the 2 IBS PhD projects selected for funding in the fall of 2022 are published here, as well as date for applying and auditioning.
