News Postdoctoral research position 2008: Research project HWE-Pol

The CNRS annual recruitment drive for Postdoctoral Research positions is designed to offer young researchers an opportunity to spend time either in CNRS Laboratories or those it runs with other organizations or higher educational institutions.

This recruitment drive offering post doctororal contracts is aimed at the most brilliant researchers, either from France or abroad to enable them to move from the laboratory where they did their Ph.D. to acquire additional high-level research experience. Thereby, enabling them to prepare uninterruptedly, and under good working conditions, for recruitment into a company or laboratory any where in the world. Young French Ph.D.s who having spent time abroad and want to return to France, can use the post doctoral positions as a way to become better known by their French colleagues, increasing their chances of obtaining permanent positions in France.

more efficient policy making is expected to renew
