3rd iGE3 PhD Salary Awards

For graduate students working in the laboratories of iGE3 faculty members

We are happy to announce the 3rd round of the iGE3 PhD Salary Awards. Similar to the first two years, these stipends will be given competitively to graduate students working in the laboratories of iGE3 members, for projects with a strong genetics or genomics component.

The graduate students have to be in the 2nd or 3rd year of their studies, and the salary awards will be provided for 2 years, non-renewable. The final selection will be made by an external (non-UNIGE) advisory board. The stipends should be acknowledged in publications as iGE3 PhD Student Awards.

Please note:

  • up to 7 PhD awards could be given in this 3rd round of the doctoral training support;
  • one application per laboratory will be accepted per call;
  • students from laboratories with awardees from last year are not eligible, i.e. lab of Antonarakis, Dermitzakis, Nef and Schalch;
  • the announcement of the final selection will be made by Monday, October 12, 2015;
