Every year, positions are reserved at INRA for individuals with disabilities, who are recruited on a contractual basis rather than through the standard competitive process. Selected individuals receive a one-year fixed-term contract and may be considered for tenure depending on their professional skills.
The current recruitment campaign for researchers and engineers with disabilities is open through 28 February 2018. Submitted applications will be examined to identify individuals whose research focuses align with INRA’s scientific priorities
