The CY Initiative TALENT PROGRAMME invites applications from high-profile young researchers willing to develop their research in one of the CY Initiative research groups.
It offers the possibility to young researchers to demonstrate their capacity to lead an ambitious research project at the highest level, as well as a research team, in all academic fields. The recruitment will take the form of junior chairs, with a duration of three years, integrated in a CY Initiative research center and offering attractive compensation and research environment. The project will contribute to the development of the Paris Seine scientific community. It is expected that the research program of the candidate be articulated with the research strategy of the hosting CYI research center and create research synergies therein, and beyond.
CY Initiative is composed of the CY Cergy Paris Université and ESSEC Business School. These two institutions have joined forces under an ambitious project, with the objective to boost their research potential and international attractiveness. Research at CY Initiative covers all academic disciplines with the exception of medicine. A detailed presentation of research groups can be found on the programme page.
The TALENT programme is part of a wider scheme to foster scientific excellence and internationalization within the CY Initiative of excellence.
The TALENT PROGRAMME welcomes applications from junior researchers with two to ten years of postdoctoral experience and with a high research potential as demonstrated by their past academic achievements and their innovative and ambitious research project.
