Research fellowships

collaboration

#1

Hello all,

You might be interested in this fellowship call from CRI Paris. The detailed call can be found here https://cri-paris.org/fellows (deadline: Aug 31st). This is the place where I am affiliated during my PhD. I have been here for threee years already.

If you want more references about what is the CRI and how it is ask @gaudi , @pin , @Sachiko , Vanessa, @ryanfobel @bengtsjolen … they spent here some days and got to know it better :slight_smile:

The CRI is embarking today a new adventure (one more:-)) to extend its research efforts by creating a collaboratory at the crossroads of life, learning, and digital sciences.

We are developing an open, collaborative research program to tackle the world’s health and education challenges, focusing on the following broad topics, amenable to bridge foundational research and societal impact:

Open health – from data-rich research to development of frugal software and hardware solutions.
Open learning – from understanding learning to human-machine paradigms
Open synthetic and systems biology – from foundational understanding of living systems to open biotech and open pharma solutions.
Open transitions – from tracing past major transitions to understanding and shaping current digital transition.
Open phronesis – tackling ethical challenges of our time.

The Collaboratory will host short (3-6 months), long (1-3 years) and core (5 years) research fellows alongside with their affiliated postdocs and PhD students. They will be accompanied by associate faculty members from France and abroad that will take part in the selection and mentoring the incoming fellows and students. Anyone capable of carrying an autonomous research project, from young graduates to established researchers (including sabbaticals) is eligible to apply to become a CRI Research Fellow. We expect a gradual recruitment build-up to reach a 60-70 strong cohort within our dedicated building at the historical heart of Paris (the Marais) that will open its doors within a year. This 6500m2 building will include state-of-the-art wet lab space, makerspace, pedagogic facilities and studio apartments for young researchers.

Importantly:

(i) If you have a specific potential fellow you wish to nominate, please send me an email (with title: [nomination]…) with his contact details and a short paragraph why you think she/he would fit for the call.

(ii) We are putting together an exhaustive list of labs that would potentially be interested in interacting with the incoming fellows (that will have financial support for such collaborations). If you wish to be included in this list, please fill this simple form, stating your name, link to your lab page and several keywords describing your research interests.

The 1st fellows calls are now open (deadline: Aug 31st) and will be renewed biannually. so, rolling basis
They can be accessed here https://cri-paris.org/fellows.

Wishing you a splendid summer!!

Juanma

Here is the new call:

Dear CRI people,

Since we contacted you last, we selected the first exciting cohort of CRI
Research Fellows, you can read more about them and their projects here
https://research.cri-paris.org/our-fellows/. We now write to ask for your
help again in identifying the next potential research fellows (maybe you?).
The detailed call can be found here http://cri-paris.org/fellows/ (deadli=
ne:
April 15th).

CRI Research opens group leader positions to join our Collaborary
We seek candidates at different career
stages, from postdoctoral young investigators to tenured scientists. We
particularly call for candidates with interest in:

Open synthetic and systems biology from foundational understanding of
living systems to open biotech and open pharma and health solutions.

Open AI Understanding and shaping current digital transition in
context of learning, health and/or coevolution of intelligences (human &
machine, individuals and collectives)

Other candidacies, focusing on other focal points of the CRI: Open health
from data-rich research to development of frugal software and hardware
solutions, Open learning from understanding learning process to n=
ew
learning paradigms, Open phronesis tackling contemporary ethical
challenges at interfaces of Life, Digital and Learning Sciences, will be
considered as well.

We are looking for scientists seeking a home to expand their research focus
or jump start a new research program within the premise of CRI research
priorities either as Core fellows (5 years) or Long-term fellows (1-3
years). In addition, Core fellows are expected to contribute as pillars and
mentors of the CRI Research community, and are required to hold a permanent
position in France. Additionally, we draw your attention to the year-long
open call for short-term fellows (3-6 months).

Anyone capable of carrying an autonomous research project, from young PhD
graduates to established researchers (including sabbaticals) is eligible to
apply to become a CRI Research Fellow. We expect a gradual recruitment
build-up to reach a 60-70 strong cohort within our dedicated building at
the historical heart of Paris (the Marais) that will open its doors during
the summer 2018. This 6500m2 building will include state-of-the-art wet lab
space, makerspace, pedagogic facilities and studio apartments for students
and young researchers.

Do not hesitate to contact us for any further information, questions (or
just to say hello:-).

Looking forward to hearing back from you,

Dule, Ariel, & Francois
