FrenchBIC summer school: from september 17th to 21st, 2017 — Apply now

  La première école “Méthodes d’études des métaux en biologie, de la molécule à la cellule” aura lieu du 17 au 21 septembre à Carry le Rouet et Marseille.
  The 1st FrenchBIC summer school on “methods for studying metals in biology” will take place from September 17th to 21st in Carry le Rouet and Marseille.

 Cette école permettra à une quarantaine de jeunes chercheurs/chercheuses (du doctorat aux premières années après le recrutement chercheur·e/ingénieur·e) de se former grâce à des cours et des travaux pratiques aux méthodes d’études des métaux en biologie. Le petit nombre de participant·e·s permettra d’organiser des TPs en petits groupes et de favoriser les interactions avec les enseignant·e·s. Les inscriptions seront bon marché pour favoriser la participation des plus jeunes. Les personnes employées par le CNRS peuvent obtenir de la formation permanente la prise en charge complète de leurs frais. Pour participer à cette école, la première étape consiste à remplir le formulaire ci dessous. Le comité d’organisation sélectionnera les participant·e·s qui devront ensuite s’inscrire.

  This summer school will provide training for young researchers, young assistant professors, engineers and technicians, PhD students and post doctoral researchers. About 45 people will attend. This number is small, in order to favour the interactions between the participants and the teachers (who will be staying for the entire duration of the school), and to run practical sessions in small groups of students. The techniques that are most useful for studying metals in biology will introduced, including traditional methods (EPR, electrochemistry, Mössbauer, NMR, RMN, fast kinetics) and a presentation of modern methods (X fluorescence imaging, mass spectrometry, nanoSIMS, AFM), which allow us to study metals in their complex biological environments.

The registrations fees have not been decided yet, but in order to favour the participation of young scientists, the price will be low (<150€, including accommodation, meals and transportation between Carry le Rouet and Marseille). This summer school being funded by CNRS, you may be entitled free registration and travel if you are paid by CNRS (irrespective of whether you are permanent researcher, technical staff, PhD student or postdoctoral researcher).

To attend, the first step consists in applying using the form below. The organization committee will then select the successful candidates and let them know. In a second step, the selected participants will have to register and pay for this, unless their fees are covered by the CNRS.
