"Hosting High-Level Researchers" 2015: the call for candidacies is open
ANR is the French National Research Agency. It aims at providing funding for research projects in every scientific field.
This call is intended for both junior and senior scientists who would like to run a research project in France.
The ANR funding can reach up to €500k for junior researchers and €1,000k for senior profiles, and will enable the successful candidate to set up a research team and carry out an ambitious 3 to 4 year project with high impact on a scientific subject that has received little, if any, attention in France. The grant can cover all or part of the researcher’s salary as well as the operating and equipment expenses.
The conditions of candidacy are simple:
- Reside abroad (or have arrived in France recently)
- For junior profiles: the candidates must have spent at least 24 months outside the French territory during their post-doctoral career and they must have defended their thesis no less than two years and no more than seven years ago
- For senior profiles: the candidates must have spent the majority of their career abroad.
