By offering a significant support, the call for proposal "Recruiting international leaders in Oncology" wishes to allow the implantation in France of new scientific leaders that will establish their team under the best conditions and carry out ambitious translational research.
To heighten France's competitiveness and extend its international renown in the field of cancerology, it is essential that the skills already present in the country be strengthened and enriched through programmes that welcome top-tier researchers and help them establish in France. The call for proposal "Recruiting international leaders in Oncology" will allow to bring a high-level researcher from abroad to set-up a research team in a French structure, and implement an ambitious translational research project in 2020.
Projects must be in line with the ARC Foundation's scientific strategy for accelerating discoveries, developing new treatments, preventive and therapeutic approaches in the field of oncology with a translational part.
The "Recruiting international leaders in oncology” CFP is aimed at French research structures located within France, composed of internationally renowned teams offering the critical mass necessary to this programme’s ambition and who wish to develop a new research programme in the field of oncology.
It is expected that the host structures make substantial commitments to guarantee the team and research project the best hosting condition.
The "Recruiting international leaders in oncology" CFP targets are top-tier researchers recognised for their scientific career and world-class quality, their ability to form their own team and to conduct their research project independently.
