LabEx DynamiTe Call for Applications 2021
Objectives and scientific framework
LabEx DynamiTe is launching its latest recruitment campaign for post-doctoral contracts. This call for applications will fund two one-year post-doctoral contracts, to begin 1 October 2021 or 1 November 2021.
Applicants for a post-doctoral contract are invited to draft a personal research proposal in agreement with a LabEx supervisor. The topic should lie within the scope of one or more of the DynamiTe Work-Packages:
- description of the LabEx DynamiTe’s Work-Package;
- list of prospective supervisors members of the LabEx DynamiTe.
Project submission procedure / conditions
Each research proposal is to be supervised by a member of LabEx DynamiTe connected to one of its 19 partner laboratories. Accordingly, applicants interested in responding to this call for projects must contact a prospective supervisor from the list of prospective supervisors before applying.
They will have to fill in an online application consisting of the following:
- the research proposal (between 10 and a maximum of 15 pages in Times 12 including bibliography and figures ; longer applications will not be considered), setting out the problem addressed, the methodology, the feasibility of completing the project in one year and the calendar. It should also mention the planned collaborations in connection with the post-doctoral project;
- a Curriculum Vitae;
- a covering letter;
- a list of the applicant’s publications, with the Internet links (if possible);
- the doctoral thesis in .PDF format;
- the doctoral defence thesis report (except for applicants who defended their thesis outside France and applicants who defended their thesis too recently. The latter should forward a statement confirming that the defence thesis took place prior to 8 July 2021, issued by the head of the doctoral school);
- a copy of the doctorate diploma (or an official statement for applicants who defended their thesis too recently);
- a written undertaking by the post-doctoral supervisor(s) to supervise the research if the applicant passes the LabEx audition;
- a welcome letter by the heads of the Work Package(s) to include the applicant in the Work Package(s) (document available here);
- a welcome letter by the director of the host laboratory to welcome the applicant into the laboratory and take charge of the field missions and any data purchases necessary (document available here).
Reference letters will not be considered. They will not be given to the Panel.
The following selection criteria are applied:
- the application’s scientific merits: a clear problem and the originality of the research proposal;
- the methodology and the implementation (feasibility of completing the post-doctoral research in one year);
- the integration in LabEx’s general scientific themes and in the laboratory environment (Work Package(s), supervisor, laboratory).
