Research: the French Research Agency invites high-level researchers
"Hosting High-Level Researchers" 2015: the call for candidacies is open
The French National Research Agency ANR has just published the second edition of the "Hosting High-Level Researchers" call. This funding instrument dedicated to individuals and open to all scientific fields enables "junior" or "senior" researchers from any country to carry out an ambitious research project in a reputed institution in France. The ANR funding is designed to help French laboratories fulfil their role as host and researchers to conduct their research. The call closing date is scheduled for 29th May 2015.
Launched for the first time in 2014, the "Hosting High Level Researchers" programme fits into a global context of international mobility of researchers. ANR wishes to promote the international attractiveness of France by offering leading foreign scientists excellent working conditions within reputed French research organisations. This is a "win-win" initiative that is underpinned by a high level of commitment on the part of the hosting organisations.
The call follows in the footsteps of ANR’s former "Post-Doctoral Return" and "Chairs of Excellence" programmes.
It is open to all scientific domains and targets two researcher profiles: leading "senior" scientists whose career is widely recognised at global level, and young researchers ("juniors") with high potential who can prove a record of excellence on the international scene.
The reply to this call is a collaborative effort between the researcher and the hosting institution.
