The Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (PIMS) and the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) are calling for applications from French researchers to spend the academic year 2013-14 at one of PIMS member universities and to participate in PIMS research activities. The applicants should be "fonctionnaires titulaires" either at the CNRS or at a French university, and priority will be given to junior researchers ("chargé(e)es de recherches" or "maîtres de conferences").

Applications should be sent to Sinnou David, Directeur adjoint scientifique, INSMI (CNRS), at david@math.jussieu.fr and to Alejandro Adem, Director of PIMS, at director@pims.math.ca, by December 1, 2012. They should include a vitae and a list of publications with a description of the research project to be done during the academic year and the names of the PIMS researchers which would be involved in the project. Results will be announced by the spring of 2013. In the case of university faculty, once the application has been accepted, the actual appointment is subject to the person receiving a "détachement au CNRS" from his/her home institution.

For one year, the CNRS will send successful applicants to the PIMS university where the research is to be carried out, on the understanding that they will be given adequate working conditions and be treated like local faculty (except for teaching). We encourage researchers at PIMS universities to contact their French counterparts and encourage them to apply. The extent of local support will be a crucial factor in judging the applications.
