Présentation et objectifs

Scientific and professional objectives of the "Immunology – Microbiology-Infectious Diseases" (IMID) Master program

The first year of the IMID Master program entitled « Molecular and Cellular Biology” is meant to complete the general scientific background of the enrolled students in various fields of Biology (Cell Biology, Genetics and Biochemistry) during the first semester. The second semester is devoted to introduce the students to their specific Master 2 program by offering them specialized courses. For IMID, the students will have at their disposal one UE for Immunology, one for microbiology, and one for Infectious Diseases.

During this first year, the students will develop their written and oral skills for the search of internships and/or jobs as well as for the presentation of research projects and experimental results (mandatory modules of 3 ECTS - “Communication tools” - and 18 ECTS during the first semester of the Master 1 program, 2 month internship during the second semester).

 The second year, first semester, of IMID Master program comprises 4 specific and integrated UEs that goes from « Microbiology » to « Infectious Diseases », to « Immunology and Immunity against Cancers » to end with « Pathology and Immunology ». During this second year, enrolled students will have the opportunity to further improve their written and oral presentation skills. The second semester is fully devoted to an internship.

Poursuite d'études

The students graduating from the “Immunology, Microbiology, and Infectious Diseases” (IMID) Master program should be able to undertake a PhD research project in the fields of Immunology, Microbiology and/or Infectious Diseases.

Consecutively to their PhD, the young researchers undertake one or two post-doctoral trainings of 2-3 years each, usually in foreign countries, in order to diversify their expertise.

They can then apply to permanent positions as

- full time researchers at the national French organizations of research (“CNRS”, “INSERM”, “INRA”, “IRD”, etc);

- project managers in R&D laboratories from private biotech companies;

- part time researchers, part time teachers in French or foreign universities.

Secteurs d'activité

Graduating from a Master degree in “Immunology – Microbiology – Infectious Diseases” leads to a career as a research engineer in academic or private laboratories.
