France: 13 Postdoc Fellowships in MSCA COFUND project 'MathInGreaterParis'

The MathInGreaterParis Fellowship Programme, cofunded by Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions H2020-MSCA-COFUND-2020 offers 2-year postdoctoral fellowships in Mathematical Sciences and theoretical Computer Science in the “Greater Paris Region" (Ile-de-France in French), in France.

The first call for 13 positions opens on 15 October 2021.

The aim of the COFUND MathInGreaterParis is to put the know-how and efforts of its participants together and to reunite and renew the international postdoctoral programmes in Paris Region. Research projects will be hosted in one of the laboratories of MathInGreaterParis network in the Paris Region area:

The novelty of MathInGreaterParis training is that in addition to a well-established research-oriented training, an innovative training for becoming "ambassador of mathematics" will be provided.

Selected fellows will be invited to question themselves on the expectations of the extra-academic world, namely, companies, institutional partners, young people, general audience.

The "learning by doing approach" will be reinforced in the program: fellows are expected to interact with their environment in order to adapt and learn. We wish to train them on communication with society.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Mobility rule: Researchers must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in France for more than 12 months in the three years immediately before the deadline of the co-funded programme’s.

  • Experienced Researcher: Candidates must have a doctoral degree or an equivalent experience, at the time of their enrolment. More precisely, at the date of their recruitment they must be in possession of a doctoral degree or have at least four years of full-time equivalent research experience.
