"CNRS-Higher Education chairs" program
In addition to recruiting researchers through a competitive
entry process, CNRS will also host associate professors,
within the framework of the « CNRS-Higher Education chairs »
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 jointly by the universities and by
CNRS, by joint selection panels, 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 pedagogical skills through a
teaching schedule limited to 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 for
their first associate professor position, but also to tenured
professors asking to be transfered and to researchers wishing to
convert to teaching positions.
Application procedures are the same as for associate
professor positions, and therefore require that a candidate be
“qualified” by the Higher Education board.
No chair positions opened for 2013
