For almost 10 years, the Bichat site’s laboratories have been participating in the Apprentis Researchers program developed in partnership with the L’Arbre des Connaissances association and neighboring schools.
The objective: a pair of students (a 3rd year high school student + a 1st year high school student, chosen by letter of motivation) is welcomed and supervised in the laboratory for 8 sessions in the year (one Wednesday afternoon per month) about). It’s about making them discover the world and the research professions, carry out with them a small scientific project, have them experiment and present their project at the end of the school year at a mini congress common to the Lariboisiere, Bobigny sites. and Bichat.
Every year, thanks to the involvement of the teams, the CRI welcomes between 6 and 12 pairs.
Who can mentor young people? Everybody ! PhD students, post-docs, statutory staff, technicians …: the only criterion is motivation.
Why get involved? To learn about scientific mediation, discover and promote the world of research to a young and uninformed public. For the wealth of meetings with students, teachers, other supervisors …
For PhD students: your participation in Apprentice Researchers can be valued in your doctoral path (validation of an EU). The association offers, in addition, a theoretical day of training in scientific mediation.
We look forward to seeing you here this year to continue this great scientific and human adventure.
