This website is intended to manage the applications to the ParaFrap international PhD Program. The ParaFrap Parasitology research program has been launched in 2012 as one of the French national consortia of excellence termed 'LabEx' ('Laboratory of Excellence') created by the French Ministry of Research and funded by the National Agency for Research (A.N.R.). ParaFrap is entirely devoted to modern Parasitology using state-of-the-art research tools and is driven by 21 international leading groups of the French Parasitology community. Its PhD program is coordinated by Prof. Patrick Bastien, at the University of Montpellier. In 2016, it will offer 11 PhD grants to high-quality early scientists who will be enrolled following a highly selective process. The applicants must strictly follow the application process proposed on this website. No application or whatsoever will be considered through direct contact with the project leaders.
