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…).

Eligible candidates are researchers meeting the following criteria:

  • Two to ten years of postdoctoral experience. This period may be extended to a maximum of twelve years upon duly justified request (maternity/paternity leave, career interruption, etc.) prior to the application.
  • Outstanding scientific record (publications, patents, etc.);
  • Applicants must be supported by a local host laboratory;
  • Applicants should not have previously held a research position (including PhD) at the University of Bordeaux or any other IdEx partner institution before applying to this program.

Proposals must be submitted electronically before November 26 2017 via the submission page in the IdEx Bordeaux Junior Chairs portal (http://idex.u-bordeaux.fr/junior-chairs). Selected candidates will be invited to Bordeaux for interviews in April or at the end of March. Please refer to the Applicant guide for details on the application procedure.

The Initiative of Excellence of the University of Bordeaux (IdEx Bordeaux) is a collective programme under the coordination of the Université de Bordeaux, in association with national research organisms CNRS and Inserm, and the following higher education and research organizations: Bordeaux Sciences Agro, Science Po Bordeaux, Bordeaux INP and Université Bordeaux Montaigne. IdEx Bordeaux also involves other partnering organizations: CEA, INRA, Inria, IRSTEA, Ifremer and CHU Bordeaux.

The Excellence Initiative of the University of Bordeaux has been labeled and granted by the French government within the framework of Investissements d’Avenir, operated by the national agency ANR (ANR-10-IDEX-03-02).
