Eligibility and criteria

Candidates must have defended their thesis within the last 3 years at the time of hiring (the position will start in 2024, a priori around September-October, and in March at the earliest).

Candidates planning to be hired more than three years after their PhD are not eligible for this call.
They are invited to get in touch with their future supervisor/collaborators members of ITI IRMIA++ in order to submit a proposal within the framework of the Research project call.

Priority will be given to interdisciplinary projects highlighting concrete ways of interacting or bringing about interactions (working groups,...). The scientific quality of the project will also be an important criterion. The presented project has to be explicitely supported by at least one member of ITI IRMIA++.

Applicants who have completed their thesis under the direction or co-direction of an IRMIA++ researcher are not eligible.

    Application and selection

    The selection of the candidates is made in 2 consecutive phases:

    Phase 1 - Application file

    The candidate must send a scientific file in English by e-mail, to the address iti-irmiapp[at]  before November 17, 2023. This file of maximum 4 pages (excluding annexes) must be provided in pdf format and must contain the following elements:

    • CV and contact information of the candidate
    • Laboratory, team and referees envisaged - At least one of the referees must be a member of the ITI IRMIA++
    • Presentation of the thesis work and project of scientific integration in the host team

    At the same time, one ITI IRMIA++ member supervising the project must also send by email to iti-irmiapp[at]  before November 17, 2023 his/her contact information, CV and a letter of explicit scientific support describing the scientific project, its stakes and its scientific context. The project may be co-written with the candidate.

    In appendix, the candidates can if they wish add the following elements (non exhaustive list):

    • Bibliography
    • Other letters of recommendation

    The applications received will be reviewed by the IRMIA++ ITI scientific expert committee in mid-December 2023.

    Only applications that include explicit support from at least one IRMIA++ ITI member will be considered.

    Phase 2 - Individual Interviews

    The scientific committee will establish a list of candidates to be interviewed from the applications received. These candidates will be contacted to proceed to individual interviews with an ad-hoc interdisciplinary committee, made up of researchers from the 3 ITI disciplines (mathematics, computer science and astrophysics). The interview will last 20 minutes per candidate.

    These pre-selected candidates will be notified of their interview date in December 2023. The interviews will take place between January 8 and 12, 2024 by videoconference.

    Successful candidates (on the main list and on the complementary list) will be notified at the end of January 2024 of the decision concerning their application.
