377 CNRS Tenured Research Positions 2011 in all fields of science, France
To attract talented young researchers, CNRS will also recruit, jointly with the universities, associate professors for the “CNRS-Higher education chairs” program.
CNRS – Higher Education chairs
For 2011, in addition to recruitment of researchers through the competitive admission process,CNRS proposes to host a delegation of young lecturers as part of the CNRS – Higher Education chairs program.
This program aims to attract talented young researchers to thematically-defined positions chosen by CNRS and the universities according to a joint scientific strategy.
The candidates, chosen by joint university/CNRS selection committees, will be recruited by the universities as Associate Professors and will be hosted by CNRS.
These chair positions will thus enable assistant professors to devote five years to a research project, which they will carry out within an appropriate scientific environment, while also developing their teaching skills through a teaching schedule that will not exceed a third of their time.
In addition to their salaries, the CNRS-Higher Education chairs will also receive a substantial bonus and funding to support their research.
These positions are not only open to young candidates seeking to become associate professors, but also to permanent professors wishing to be transferred and to researchers hoping to convert to teaching positions.
Application procedures are the same as for associate professor positions, and therefore require candidates to be “qualified” by the Higher Education board.
Candidates for CR2 positions must hold a doctorate or equivalent foreign degree, or provide evidence of equivalent qualifications and research experience.
Candidates for CR1, DR2 or DR1 positions must meet the same qualification requirements and, in addition, have 4, 8 or 12 years’ research experience in a public or private laboratory.
NB : the “doctorat d’Etat” was the Ph.D. system, which applied in France until July 5, 1984. A new Ph.D. system has since come into force.
If you do not hold a doctorate or do not have sufficient research experience, you may still be deemed eligible for the recruitment process after examination of your application by the appropriate section of the National Committee for Scientific Research, which will assess the equivalence of your scientific work.
