Call for Applications: Institut Pasteur Postdoctoral Grants, Calmette and Yersin Programme
The Institut Pasteur calls in 2013 to candidature for a postdoctoral traineeship in the Institut Pasteur International Network.
Objective The Institut Pasteur International Division will finance one young French or foreign researcher to allow to realize a postdoctoral training in an institute of the Institut Pasteur International Network (RIIP) except metropolitan France. The complete postdoctoral training will be conducted in the same host institute without interruption.
These postdoctoral grants are intended to promote mobility. The postdoctoral training must be performed outside its home country or outside the country in which the university studies were conducted.
Fellowship areas may include all themes developed in the laboratories of the RIIP: research on and surveillance of infectious diseases (physiopathology, immunology, microbiology, epidemiology, virology, parasitology).
The applicant must have a PhD.
Duration This doctoral fellowship will be awarded for a duration of 2 years
Funding Fixed-term local contract with social charges covering life expenses and insurance (net amount of €1,900 per month) and a return air ticket per year between the country of origin and ttraineeship location.
Evaluation Criteria A Selection committee will decide on the allocation of this postdoctoral fellowship according to the relevance of the project, the goals of the training and on the file of the candidates.
Deadline for submissions: May 31, 2013
The description of the postdoctoral project (2 pages maximum) including context, problematics, objectives and working program (activities, waiting results and schedule) with the amount and origin of the budget for the internship project.
Applicant’s curriculum vitae (1 page)
Presentation of previous research already done by the candidate and the results (2 pages maximum)
Chronological list of scientific publications
The applicant must indicate whether s/he has already received a fellowship from a French or international organisation last year and whether s/he has applied for any other fellowships this year and, if so, at which institution(s).
Elements on the institute, the team and the supervisor (2 pages maximum) knowing that pre-required asked are the following ones:
- the supervisor should have publications, an experience on the subject (or the methods) proposed for the postdoctoral traineeship, if possible, an HDR and give the commitment that he will be in post for all the postdoctoral traineeship duration;
- the host team will received a "sufficient" size (a single researcher cannot constitute a team) and conditions of employment (scientific materials and environment) suited
The names, positions and email referents (director of the host institution, supervisor in the host laboratory) will be required in order to fill online:
A letter from the Director of the host institute
A letter from the head of the host laboratory pledging to give the necessary assistance to the applicant and specifying the name, qualifications and position of the researcher who will be supervising the applicant.
One call for proposals a year:
- Deadline for application: May 31, 2013
- Notification of the selected candidate: mid of July 2013
- Beginning of the postdoctoral traineeship: October 2013

American College of Cardiology Foundation/Merck Research Fellowships in Cardiovascular Disease
Four one-year fellowships will be awarded to support research in adult cardiology. Preference is given to individuals who have had no more than two years of prior full-time experience either in clinical or basic research. Recipients will be expected to pursue a full-time project in clinical research during their year of supported training.
Research Focus: In selecting applications, proposals addressing CVD and Cardiometabolic disorders are encouraged. Included are proposals that address pathophysiology, molecular genetics, metabolic abnormalities leading to cardiovascular disease, hypertension, heart failure, hyperlipidemia, inflammatory mechanisms and new pathways for drug discovery. Proposals focusing on clinically relevant outcomes as a result of the metabolic syndrome, diabetes or obesity are also encouraged. Outcomes studies should focus on clinical/and or systems of care (e.g., quality improvement) interventions, and use outcomes measures of importance to both patients and society, including mortality, significant morbidity or quality of life changes, or economic effects.
Preference for one award will be given to applicants focusing on disparities of care. Despite increased attention to health disparities at the national, state and community levels, relatively little progress has been made in achieving the vision of eliminating racial and ethnic health disparities. Since the rates of cardiovascular mortality in the United States are significantly higher for these patients and this is, in fact, the leading cause of death in this demographic, innovative approaches to eliminating these disparities are critical. In an effort to encourage and support research in this area, proposals will be encouraged that focus on gender, race, geographic, and economic inequalities in cardiovascular care.
Eligibility: Anyone currently in an adult cardiology fellowship training program recognized by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education or the American Osteopathic Association and who has the recommendation and agreement of his/her training program director and institution.
Selection: Judging will be by the ACCF/Research Fellowship Awards Committee. Criteria for selection will include:
• Scientific quality of the project;
• Relevance to the research focus as described above;
• Qualifications and commitment of the applicant; and
• The quality of the training environment.
Successful applicants may pursue this protected year of research either within or following their three years of required training. Preference will be given to individuals who:
• Will pursue clinical research training and experience directly involving patients or human subjects.
• Have had no more than two years of prior full-time research experience either in clinical or basic research.
• Will not hold another major external fellowship or salary award, (e.g., from the National Institutes of Health or the American Heart Association) during the ACCF/Merck funded year.
The Award: Four fellowships in the amount of $70,000 each, to be used for salary support, for one year of research to begin July 1, 2014 and run through June 30, 2015.
Funding Source: The ACCF is grateful to the Merck Company Foundation for their continued financial support for these awards.
Deadline: September 23, 2013

American College of Cardiology Foundation Young Investigator Awards Competition
The Young Investigator Awards competition encourages and recognizes young scientific investigators of promise, upon whom progress in the field of cardiology is dependent. A manuscript and abstract summarizing any problem that relates to cardiovascular disease whether it be in etiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis, or therapy.
Award Categories include the following:
1. ACCF/Herman K. Gold Young Investigator Awards in Molecular and Cellular Cardiology
2. Physiology, Pharmacology and Pathology
3. Clinical Investigations, Congenital Heart Disease and Cardiac Surgery
