Science and Technology
Those currently working toward a Ph.D.
in science or engineering, including biomedical and agricultural sciences,
or those who have completed it in the last three years, may qualify for
a fellowship from the French Government to conduct research in France. Some
of the fellowships are co-sponsored by French companies.
The research would be performed in a French university, a school of engineering
or in a public or private laboratory. Candidates must be accepted by a French
laboratory in order to be eligible for this fellowship program.
Existing contracts between a laboratory and a French research institution
may be used or candidates may register on the Web (http://chateaubriand.amb-wash.fr) (link no longer available). In this case, the file will be submitted to directors
of various laboratories in France who will be able to contact applicants
Starting in September 1998, the fellowships are available for a six to twelve
month period, with a monthly stipend of $1800 for a doctoral fellow and
$2200 for a post-doctoral fellow. Health insurance and a round trip ticket
are also provided.
Only completed applications received before December 1, 1997 will
be accepted. Applicants must be US citizens and registered in a university
in the US or in a US National Laboratory.
