Campus France MOPGA 4: Visiting Fellowship Program for Young Researchers: "One Health"

The Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs (MEAE) in partnership with the Ministry of Higher Education for Research and Innovation (MESRI) have launched a visiting fellowship program to welcome young researchers wishing to carry out their research in France as part of a "One Health" approach.

Deadline: May 10th, 2021

Candidate eligibility: Candidates must have obtained their PhD less than five years prior to the application, i.e. they must have defended their PhD between May 2016 and April 2021. They should not have resided in France after September 1st 2020 (more than 90 days) and they must not be French nationals. The start of the visiting fellowship for young researchers in France is due to take effect in January 2022.

40 fellowships will be awarded to the young researchers over a 12-month period from January 2022

The fellowship includes the following benefits:
- Monthly allowance of 2,500 euros  
- Moving allowance of 500 euros
- Support for social security coverage 
- Support for health insurance


Research themes: a transdisciplinary "One Health" approach

The "One Health" concept promotes an integrated, systemic approach to human, animal and ecosystem health at local, national and global scales. This approach provides a better understanding of the causes and consequences of the functioning and evolution of our societies (in terms of demographics, mobilities, economic conditions, lifestyles, well-being and public health, etc.), global environmental changes, including climate change and the erosion of biodiversity as well as the proliferation of emerging diseases. It thus helps to guide public policies on health prevention or innovation in a diverse economic and socio-cultural context. It also aims at taking a holistic view of health, environmental management and biodiversity pressures in order to better prevent and respond to emerging diseases at pandemic risk.
