Glyco@alps  has recruited PhD students on interdisciplinary projects co-directed by two teams of IDEX or in international collaborations. In addition all young doctoral students and post-doctoral fellows in Grenoble interested in Glycosciences are welcome in the Glyco@Club !

These students have been recruited through a highly selective process (targeting 50% of foreign applicants) for nucleation of a larger “Glyco@Club of Young Scientists”.  This program is transverse to the existing doctoral schools. The aim is to provide high quality, interdisciplinary training in the field of glycosciences and their applications to the large group of PhD students and post-docs involved in glycosciences located in Grenoble (about 100 young scientists). Career development activities are routinely managed by the Doctoral College at UGA. In addition, some courses are dedicated to professional insertion (e.g. partnership with local business schools).

The project takes advantage of the participation of environmental scientists, economists, architects and industrial partners (also potential recruiters) to introduce fields that are often excluded from the world of a glycoscientist. Social network community is supported and organization of social events by the Glyco@Club is encouraged.
