[Joint call FRB-CESAB / CeMEB CESABATIC] Short term stays for foreign researchers (2-3 months)
The CeMEB LabEx (Mediterranean Environment and Biodiversity Centre) and the Centre for the Synthesis and Analysis of Biodiversity (CESAB) of the French Foundation for Biodiversity Research (FRB) offer financial support for hosting 2 foreign researchers for short stays at the CESAB in Montpellier (from 2 months minimum to 3 months maximum).
This funding scheme concerns researchers or professors and recognised for their scientific excellence. Applicants must have held their doctoral degree for over 10 years and not have resided or conducted their main activity (academic career, research program, etc.) in France for more than 12 months during the three years preceding the date of submission of the application.
Proposed projects must clearly state the added value for CeMEB LabEx research community and for the CESAB’s dynamics.
The researchers will be based in the CESAB premises in Montpellier (5 Rue de l’École de Médecine, Montpellier). Researchers can find at CESAB the necessary environment to conduct analyses that address major scientific challenges in biodiversity research. Visiting CESABATIC researchers will be provided with office space and will have the opportunity to interact with CESAB postdocs, data analysts and synthesis groups as well as CeMEB LabEx research units.
Two projects were selected by the steering and selection committee.
