Recherche et Développement


École des Ponts ParisTech is an institution of higher education and research in the field of science, engineering and economics. Under the supervision of the Ministry of Ecological and Solidarity Transition (MTES) and with an EPSCP status (Public Scientific, Cultural and Professional Establishment), its missions concern research, training and continuing education, the dissemination of knowledge, and the transfer to economic sectors and support for business creation. Its activities are national and international.

Poste et missions

The research at École des Ponts ParisTech is characterized by a balanced effort in the following scientific activites:

  • Outstanding academic research, evaluated at the highest level by the HCERES (highest council for research), with 5 ERC, more than 1000 publications of rank A per year, a hundred Ph.D. theses supported per year,
  • Partnership research with companies, public entities and local authorities.

École des Ponts ParisTech, in accordance with its strategic plan, develop a long-term research activity in the field of Machine Learning and Computer Vision. In its 2019 recruiting campaign, it opens two permanent researcher positions, one in the applied mathematics laboratory CERMICS and the other in the Imagine team at the LIGM computer lab. These positions are the subject of separate, yet complementary, descriptive worksheets.


École des Ponts ParisTech is one of the top 5 selective French « Grandes Écoles ». It trains engineers, with solid background in mathematics, at a high level of scientific, technical and general competences. CERMICS is a top ranked research center in applied mathematics. It hosts joint research teams with INRIA Paris and the University Paris-Est Marne-la-Vallée.


The research activity is currently organized in three main streams: Applied Probability; Modeling, Analysis and Simulation; Optimization and Systems. The staff includes 19 permanent researchers (14 senior researchers with “habilitation”, 5 young researchers), and about 40 PhD students and postdocs. CERMICS has developed many industrial partnerships, academic partnerships (e.g, CERMICS is involved in three INRIA teams) and received important European and National research grants. The successful candidates will have to develop, in collaboration with the researchers of CERMICS, innovative research programs, with a strong academic component as well as research partnerships with industrial or service companies.


École des Ponts ParisTech has the ambition to develop within the research center in applied mathematics (CERMICS) a group in Statistics, Machine Learning and Data Sciences.



Mobilité géographique :
