Contexte et atouts du poste

Each year, Inria launches a recruitment campaign for Postdoctoral (postdoc) positions, and a limited number of slots is reserved for the International Relation Department in order to support Inria international collaborations.

Inria London Programme is one of the priority cooperation programs for this year.

The postdoctoral positions aim to support active collaborations with the Programme and topics are listed on Inria London Programme website: https://london.inria.fr/call-for-postdoctoral-research-positions-inria-london/

The postdoc contract will have a duration of 12 to 24 months. The default start date is November 1st, 2022 and not later than January, 1st 2023. The Post-Doc will be recruited by one of the Inria centers in France but it is recommended that the time is shared between France and London.

Mission confiée

Conduct cutting-edge research within the scientific topics addressed by Inria, engage in collaborative research and publish outputs in international peer-reviewed venues.

Eligibility criteria:
Candidates for postdoctoral positions are recruited after the end of their PhD or after a first post-doctoral period: for the candidates who obtained their PhD in the Northern hemisphere, the date of the defence shall be later than 1 September 2020; in the Southern hemisphere, later than 1 April 2020.

In order to encourage mobility, the post-doctorate must take place in a scientific environment that is truly different from that of the PhD (and, if applicable, from the job held since the PhD); particular attention is thus paid to French or international candidates who obtained their doctorate abroad.
