Call for PhD students, residents and postdoctoral fellows to participate in the - ICAN 2022 Summer Camp competition

Created in April 2012 by the Fonds de Recherche du Québec – Santé (FRQS), the Research Network on CardioMetabolic health, Diabetes and Obesity aims to develop research excellence in these areas, to transfer knowledge and to foster the use of new knowledge so as to promote quality of life for all Quebecers.

The network is calling for PhD students, residents and postdoctoral fellows to participate in the ICAN 2022 Summer Camp competition, which will take place from June 20 to 24, 2022 in Paris, France. The students, residents and postdoctoral fellows from all regular members of the network are invited to participate in this competition. The 5 selected participants will experience a thematic week – Pursuing a career with a PhD – A world of possibilities! Workshops will be set up to cover the following topics:

  • Understanding the variety of careers after a PhD in cardiometabolism;
  • Know how to analyze jobs from the point of view of missions and skills;
  • Know how to conduct a documentary survey and know the appropriate resources;
  • Identify and develop one’s professional skills;

The visit to the ICAN’s technological platforms will allow the participants to meet with internationally renowned researchers who run them:

  • Platform – Bioinformatics applied to OMICS;
  • Platform – Bioinformatics applied to MRI;
  • Platform – Primary culture models in 2D/3D;
  • Platform – iPS (Induced pluripotent stem cell);

Finally, among the specific disciplines mastered in the research laboratories visited, we find these:

  • MRI acquisition ;
  • MRI sequence analysis;
  • Generation of lipidomic and/or metabolomic data;
  • Bioinformatics analysis of lipidomics and metabolomics data;
  • iPS cell line manufacturing;
  • Cellular models in 2D or 3D;
  • Other, to specify.

The overall objective of this summer camp, in addition to international networking, is to equip participants with the fundamental skills to put their talent forward and thus secure employment. ICAN will cover the local costs (meals and lodging for four nights, June 20-24 (personal expenses and extended lodging are not included)) of the Quebec participants selected by the CMDO Network. The network will pay $500 per participant to reimburse part of the transportation costs. All other costs will be assumed by the participants and/or their supervisor.

The deadline for submission of applications is February 15, 2022.

The eligibility criteria and evaluation process are described in the guide. Applications that are late, incomplete or do not meet the eligibility criteria will not be evaluated. Selected applicants will be contacted in February.

It is always important to read the rules and criteria before completing the Form (Open the Guide (PDF file at the top of the page) to see the detailed questionnaire).

FORM MUST BE COMPLETED ONLINE (SEE ABOVE LINK). IT CAN BE RECORDED TO BE COMPLETED LATER.
