By Sean McMahon:
I am an astrobiologist: a natural scientist interested in life, the universe, and the relationship between them. I lead the Planetary Palaeobiology Group in the School of Physics and Astronomy and the School of GeoSciences at the University of Edinburgh, where I also co-direct the UK Centre for Astrobiology, teach a variety of science courses, and run Edinburgh’s unique new MSc programme in Astrobiology and Planetary Sciences.
Current interests span the search for life on Mars, the origin and evolution of life on Earth, the chemistry of fossilization, the fossil record of bacteria, the philosophy of astrobiology, and the problem of false positive detections of life in very ancient or remote contexts. Research in my group combines field, analytical, theoretical and experimental approaches and is currently funded by the Royal Society, the Royal Society of Edinburgh, and the Leverhulme Trust, among other sources.

Rencontres Exobiologiques pour Doctorants is an annuel meeting adress to:
• Any student preparing his PhD thesis in Astronomy, Geology, Chemistry, Biology or History/Philosophy of sciences in France or any other country.
• Any students or young scientist wishing to acquire an interdisciplinary training in astrobiology to complete their initial training and to be able to address issues about the origins of life on Earth, its evolution and its distribution in the Universe.
