SPS Open call for research projects

Overview of the four calls

The fourth SPS call for research projects has just ended. Each year, this call allocates 3-4 grants to host young researchers (PhD students and postdocs) in SPS laboratories.

Now that the SPS LabEx is halfway through and that the first doctoral contracts will soon end, it is time to look back on the selected projects:

Over the past three years, about ten brilliant young scientists have thus joined SPS research teams for projects on various topics.

Moreover, it is worth noting that Maria-Victoria Gomez Roldan, who was recruited in 2012 for the postdoc project coordinated by Abdelhafid Bendahmane, has obtained an Intra-European Fellowship for Career Development (IEF - Marie Curie Action) during her postdoc and has just been recruited as a CNRS CR2 in the team of Abdelhafid Bendahmane.

This year, the three projects selected through this SPS call concern the mechanisms involved in iron absorption by roots, the way bacteria infect plants and the creation of “sentinel” plants to easily detect biotic and abiotic stresses in fields. The recruitment procedure for PhD students and postdocs is underway. These projects will start in autumn 2015.
