Résumé

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.

  • 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.
