Doctoral Candidate positions HORIZON-MSCA-Doctoral Network PROSTAMET

9 Doctoral Candidate positions HORIZON-MSCA-Doctoral Network PROSTAMET

OPEN CALL: 15th February 2024 - 15th April 2024

PROSTAMET is an immersive Doctoral Network (DN), that through the set-up of a unique comprehensive and modular translational pipeline aims to expose high achieving doctoral candidates to the complete research chain from cutting-edge molecular discovery all the way to innovative drug development, while focusing on the underexplored clinical potential of altered lipid metabolism in prostate cancer.

PROSTAMET involves 8 university-associated research centers (KU Leuven (BE), CNRS-Toulouse (FR), Inserm-Nice (FR), Université Clermont Auvergne (FR), UNIPG-Perugia (IT), UPO-Novara (IT), U Namur (BE), IPOPORTO (PT) that function as main host institutions for 9 Doctoral Candidates (DC) and 8 private or academic entities (‘associated partners’) that offer unique research and training opportunities.

For more information please visit our website.


The DC will receive a 36-month scholarship to cover her/his living costs. The gross amount of the doctoral scholarship is based on a living allowance that is dependent on a country correction coefficient which takes into account the cost of living in the country of the recruiting institution.

The cost of all training activities, including all expenses related to travel and accommodation to attend annual meetings and other network-organized events will be paid by the network through the Horizon Europe MSCA-DN grant. DCs will have access to a dedicated workspace and research facilities. Bench/consumables costs to execute the research project will be covered by the institutions.
