Job description

IAST aims to be the home of academic freedom and experimentation, where top-flight researchers are able to explore new territory in a cross-disciplinary direction and interact with visitors in a lively environment.

The Research Program of the IAST is organized around 5 broad themes:

  • Individual motives, Actions, Innovation and Well Being
  • Individual and Social Networks
  • Society, Globalization and Public Policy
  • The Nation State and Global Public Goods
  • Governance and Markets

We welcome contributions within these themes from researchers within a large range of disciplines, in particular from anthropology, biology, history, law, philosophy, political science, psychology and sociology, though motivated applications from outside these disciplines will be given full consideration.

Eligible applicants:

Active researchers who have or will have completed their PhD after January 2009 and before September 2013. The IAST offers candidates an opportunity to devote themselves full time to their research at the start of their careers.

The IAST is offering Junior Chairs (equivalent to Assistant Professorships) in various disciplines, starting Sept 1, 2013 for a period of six years corresponding to a three year contract renewable once after a mid-term review. The holder of the chair will then be offered a permanent position in the French academic system following a successful tenure evaluation.
