Published on Tuesday, February 18, 2014


IMéRA (Institute for Advanced Study of Aix-Marseille University) is issuing a Call for team applications opened to scientists and artists, for residence schemes scheduled between 23 February 2015 and 13 July 2016 (duration 2, 3 or 4 weeks). IMéRA residence proposals are open to researchers (senior and junior) of all origins in terms of nationality and disciplines. IMéRA will consider applicants from the Mediterranean rims in a particularly favourable way. Applications can only be submitted on IMéRA's website.


Aix-Marseille University Institute for Advanced Study IMéRA has 5- or 10-months residency schemes for foreign world-class researchers; it also accommodates a few multi-disciplinary teams with a collective project for short duration stays.

Research projects carried out at IMéRA focus on cross-fertilisation within social science, within science, between social science and formal/experimental and health science, and on relationships between art and science, exploring and enhancing the potential openings between such disciplines and the new objects that may be formed there.

IMéRA aims at fostering the emergence and development of world-class cross-disciplinary research approaches and grooms young researchers for such approaches on Aix-Marseille University ground.

In their applications, candidates should therefore clearly demonstrate their interest in cross-disciplinary projects.

IMéRA also enthusiastically welcomes projects bearing on Mediterranean territories or submitted by researchers from the Mediterranean rim.


Applications must be sent not later than on Monday 7 April 2014 (included).

Teams can choose between residences of 2, 3 or 4 weeks.

Candidates must choose their residence dates between 23 February 2015 and 17 July 2015 or between 14 September 2015 and 13 July 2016.


Residences at IMéRA are open to international, cross-disciplinary teams.

To be eligible, teams must include:

-       between 3 and 6 members working on one same project (scientists and/or artists);

-       members with different nationalities (at least two nationalities);

-       members from different disciplines (at least two disciplines).


Application assessment criteria include, but are not limited to:

  • Project and researcher’s value and potential;
  • Connection of project with IMéRA’s cross-disciplinary framework (capacity to link with other disciplinary domains);
  • Relevance of the research project in terms of its connection with the Aix-Marseille area (potential interaction with local facilities, teams and research centres; use of local resources – field, archives, etc.).



L’IMéRA will pay each team member a daily allowance (per diem) of €30.50.


IMéRA provides free accommodation to team members.


IMéRA will pay for the residents’ ticket from their usual place of residence to Marseille and back.


IMéRA invites resident teams to organise an international research seminar on a theme related to their project during their stay, with the possibility of asking several external specialists to participate.


Applications must be in English or French.

Candidates must submit their applications EXCLUSIVELY on IMéRA's website (www.imera.fr). Applications sent by e-mail or by post will NOT be considered.
