Being a CNRS researcher (junior or senior researcher)

CNRS recruits permanent researchers through a competitive admission process based on qualifications, experience and positions held. Candidates are selected on the basis of their application and, if necessary, following an interview. The recruitment process takes place once a year.

If you are interested to candidate for a permament researcher position in my laboratory LTDS UMR 5513 on my research topics (vibration, nonlinear dynamics, friction-induced vibration and noise, rotordynamics, structural health monitoring, stochastic process, ...), please contact me.
