Prospective students and post-docs are most welcome to join our research group. Graduate students searching for PhDs and PhD students searching for post-doc in my lab can contact me directly by email. There are various sources of funding for PhD and post-doc projects in our laboratory including opportunities for research grants from the Région Ile-de-France, the Ville de Paris, bilateral programs between France and foreign countries and EU grants. We can also host PhD students from abroad as part of their doctoral programs.
