2010 doctoral and post-doctoral grants in the Île-de-France region

Laurent Cousin

Like every year, the Île-de-France regional council has issued calls for projects and applications to award its doctoral (ARDoC and DIM) and post-doctoral grants (Dim).

Doctoral Research Grants in Targeted Areas (ARDoC) are entirely funded by the Île-de-France Region for doctoral research projects carried out in the Region’s doctoral schools.
The Region’s grant recipients will receive a flat monthly net stipend of about 1,450 euros. This salary is contained in the payment of a total amount of 2,700 euros by the Region to the host institution responsible for hiring the young researcher for a 36-month fixed-term contract.

Seven areas are targeted in the framework of this call for proposals:

Sciences and techniques:

 - Mathematics
 - Optics and astrophysics
 - Green chemistry and eco-materials

Human and social sciences:

 - Regional public action and institutions: historical, European and comparative perspectives
 - Territories and disparities, policies for the prevention of and fight against discrimination
 - Peoples and migration: The Île-de-France region in globalization
 - Diversity and regional identity: languages and cultures in Île-de-France.
Closing date: February 12, 2010.
