French organisation’s chief executive discusses new opening to attract top young talent from other countries
- There are no exact requirements for how many post-PhD years you must have before applying.
- Get in touch with a laboratory associated with your challenge before you apply.
- You can apply to more than one of the 25 positions, but each is quite specific and your skill set may not be applicable to more than one.
- Demonstrate high scientific potential in the application; this scheme is all about attracting the brightest and best.
The CNRS is France’s largest public research organisation and the only multidisciplinary one. In a bid to attract more scientists from outside France, it is offering a new path of entry this year with a generous welcome package and the promise of tenure at the end of the programme.
