In partnership with Université Paris-Saclay, the Paris Institute for Advanced Study is offering two 6-month chairs for high level international researchers in the humanities and social sciences (HSS): one during the academic year 2018-2019, and one during the academic year 2019-2020.

The Paris-Saclay – Paris IAS “Jean d’Alembert” Research Chair gives a researcher the possibility to work on a project in the following fields: “Markets, businesses, work and innovation”, “Heritage, culture and knowledge”, or “Sciences and society”. He or she will benefit from the work conditions and the scientific environment of the Paris IAS and will collaborate chiefly with laboratories of Université Paris-Saclay.

Applicants are encouraged to submit a research proposal within one the following themes:

Researchers related to work, its diversity, regulations, and problems. The proposals can deal with businesses as organizations or institutions, or examine the regulations of companies, institutions, markets and private and public administrations. The dynamics of innovation can also be covered by the proposals.

The proposals can deal with the past or present logic of granting heritage status (“Patrimonialisation”), whether the heritage is cultural, scientific or technical. Reflections on the circulation of knowledge, and in particular scientific and technical knowledge, are welcome, as well as projects investigating more particularly the links between cultures, knowledge and society through the lens of “patrimonialisation” processes.

As a result of the specialization of the Maison des sciences de l’Homme Paris-Saclay in the interdisciplinary work linking the HSS (including law) and the natural sciences, the present call is extended to include proposals on the relations between sciences and society. Examples include –but are not limited to– themes such as climate change, energy, algorithms, biotechnologies, health, etc.

This call for applications is open to:

The institute is bilingual. Knowledge of English is required. The applicants are also expected to understand written and spoken French, as scientific and social activities are held in French and English.

The main criteria of selection are:

The holder of the Paris-Saclay – Paris IAS “Jean d’Alembert” Research Chair benefits from all the advantages the Paris IAS provides its fellows, among which housing in Paris, a monthly remuneration (or the complement of remuneration) and the payment of the round-trip ticket to Paris.
