The various ways to get funded for a PhD at SPINTEC
We regularly open PhD positions with readily-available grants based on our own funding. Such positions are advertised below, when available. Besides this, there are a significant number of programs to apply for grants, in a joint project involving the candidate and the laboratory, as listed below. A list of research topics for which we are seeking candidates is updated on a yearly basis, typically during the Fall, to be displayed on this page. The list of topics proposed for Master-2 internships already provides a good starting point.
