SPP/JPP Young Investigator Awards

Candidates should email :


2-3 letters of support, their CV and a list of publications (separated into those from PhD and post-doc studies, and those as an independent researcher), to Matthew, ICPP co-organizer in the Dijon SPP Office at - prior to 15 November 2021.
