Research Junior Chair (team leader position) - Idex Bordeaux
Call for Applications
3-year Research Junior Chairs (Team leader positions) at the
University of Bordeaux
The Initiative of Excellence of the University of Bordeaux (IdEx Bordeaux) is opening up research chair positions for young scientists. The program will support young, high-profile international researchers in setting up a research team to develop their own project within one of Bordeaux's laboratories. These positions are funded for a period of 3-years.
Applications are open to all scientific fields. However, IdEx Bordeaux is built on a number of scientific priorities and proposals in these areas or at the interfaces between them will be examined with particular attention. These fields are: materials science, neuroscience, environment and ecosystems, numerical certification and reliability, archaeology, lasers and photonics, health and societies, translational imaging and cardiology. Candidates bringing new skills to develop emerging research areas and researchers with an industrial background are welcome to apply.
The amount of the grant may cover the salary of the chair holder, expenses resulting from setting up a research lab (purchase of small equipment), a technician or a postdoctoral researcher salary and operational costs.
Researchers preparing applications for tenured positions (assistant professor, professor or researcher positions) at any of the IdEx Bordeaux partnering institution during the 2018 recruitment campaigns are eligible to this funding scheme. Candidates are encouraged as well to apply for other French and international funding schemes that may be cumulated with IdEx Bordeaux funding (ERC, Atip AVENIR, ANR JCJC, etc…).
