Recruitment of permanent researchers at CNRS, Laboratory of Hydrology and Geochemistry (Strasbourg, France)
The French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) is among the world's leading research institutions. CNRS recruits permanent researchers through yearly competitive examinations. Open in December to all fields of science, the competitive examinations are divided into sections of the National Committee for Scientific Research (CoNRS). The deadline for applications is early January. The competition is open to all nationalities. Holders of a doctorate, PhD or other foreign degrees, titles or equivalent research may apply to several types of positions (researcher, research director), depending on their experience. The recruitment entails two phases: the candidate (i) submits an application stating past research activities and a detailed research project, and (ii) is evaluate by a national jury, and invited (or not) for an oral presentation (10 to 15 minutes) to expose her/his current and future research.
Prior to this process, the candidate is strongly encouraged to contact as soon as possible the French research laboratory they plan to join in order to prepare her/his application.
Our laboratory (LHYGES, UMR7517, CNRS/University of Strasbourg, France, https://lhyges.unistra.fr/?lang=en) focuses on two scientific themes defined by the Section 30 'Continental Surface and Interfaces' of the CoNRS, namely : - Processes of the critical zone and subsurface at any time scale ; transfers and flows of matter and energy, hydrology, weathering and erosion and - Biogeochemistry and physical-chemistry of interfaces, cycles of elements. LHYGES is a leading competence center for characterization and modelling of matter flows and (reactive) transport in hydrosystems. We are seeking to help creative and motivated candidates to apply to the CNRS competition and join us as a researcher in all scientific fields of LHYGES, and in particular in environmental biogeochemistry, stable isotopes, (micro)pollutant transport and transformation, catchment hydrology in agricultural contexts and/or geomicrobiology. Interdisciplinary candidatures (Section 52 CoNRS) clearly combining human and biogeophysical sciences to resolve social issues related to the water cycle and/or agricultural pollution are also welcome. If you wish to apply and join us, please contact us and send a pre-selection file (email@example.com) including:
Following the examination of your file, we will contact you as soon as possible in order to prepare with you, if the quality of your records allows it, the CNRS competition.
The dates/deadlines to keep in mind to prepare - with the help of LHYGES members - your CNRS application 2021 are as follows:
The laboratory recruits ca. one junior researchers every 3 years through the CNRS competition process. For any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us at (firstname.lastname@example.org).
