PARIS, December 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Training young doctors, pharmacists and engineers in oncology research.
The cancer genome, targeted therapy, immunotherapy… A real revolution is under way in Oncology. "Be a part of the next change in oncology" is the title of the new international drive launched by Gustave Roussy (France) to recruit young doctors, pharmacists and engineers in France, Europe and the rest of the world. This campaign is aiming to attract the most talented individuals who have followed a dual course in Biology, so that Gustave Roussy can train them to take on the great challenges posed by the Oncology of the future.
Supervised by Gustave Roussy's specialised researchers, they will work on key topics in laboratories provided with the most advanced equipment. They will benefit from personalised support in relation to their career plans. Three-year research contracts to work with the Institute's expert researchers lead to presentation of a doctoral thesis in Sciences.
The application process is now open and the closing date is 15th February 2016. Candidates may apply directly on http://www.phd-in-oncology.com.
Training at the highest level delivered in a context of continuous innovation.
The programme «Course of excellence in Oncology - Fondation Philanthropia» was established within the School of Cancer Sciences of the Paris-Sud/Paris-Saclay University College of Doctoral Schools. It is about to enlist its fourth year graduation of four research students to be trained in the Oncology of the future. Because it believes that progress in research is favoured by an approach to exchanges on an international scale, Gustave Roussy intends to recruit half of the candidates from outside France. All efforts will be made to achieve gender parity. The research work can be carried out under co-supervision, involving the candidate's home research establishment and possibly collaboration with another international centre of excellence.

The programme combines theory and practice and it runs for three years. The research work is carried out in one of Gustave Roussy's laboratories and will be focussed in cutting-edge areas: DNA repair, molecular-driven medicine, radiobiology, onco-haematology, immunotherapy or molecular epidemiology. This high-grade, tailored training will be led by expert researchers with international reputations. The doctoral students will receive salary of a net monthly payment of around 2,300 Euros (including health insurance coverage) over the period of three years.
