visiting Junior Reseachers

As part of its research training mission, every year the Collège de France invites junior researchers (PhD students registered at other universities or post-docs) to join its Chairs, laboratories and "Resident Research Teams". Around forty among them are recruited for associate lecturer or ATER positions that are funded by the Collège de France, and the others benefit from funding from various sources.
Three quarters of the junior researchers are scientists (prima­rily chemists and biologists), the others are spread across all disciplines in the humanities and social sciences.
During the academic year 2011/2012, a third of the 177 young researchers invited to the Collège de France for re-search residencies were from abroad (half were EU citizens).
The opening of new physics/chemistry laboratories on the Collège de France campus in 2013 will significantly in-crease the institutions' capacities to host junior researchers.
