[CNRS-FRANCE-MEXIQUE] Call for applications for the Franco-Mexican post-doctorate program

Application deadline: 17 May 2024

This program, supported by the scientific cooperation department of the French Embassy in Mexico and part-financed by the CNRS, aims to support the mobility and scientific stays of Mexican post-doctoral researchers in France, as part of the implementation of research projects with the following aims:

  • Strengthen scientific and technological exchanges between France and Mexico, for mutual benefit
  • Promote new collaborations and encourage the development of innovative joint research projects of the highest scientific level
  • Encourage the promotion and valorization of joint research activities by the scientific communities of both countries, such as scientific co-publications, seminars, workshops and joint patent presentations.
  • The aim of the CNRS co-funded grants is to promote collaboration between the CNRS and Mexico, and to support the strengthening of high-level joint research projects underway in CNRS units.

Funding covers the mobility and accommodation of postdoctoral researchers (travel expenses and per diem). However, expenditure on equipment, technical studies, educational visits and the organization of seminars and/or conferences are not eligible for reimbursement.

This program aims to develop scientific and technological exchanges of excellence between laboratories in the two countries, by encouraging new and emerging partnerships, as well as existing ones for the CNRS. This is achieved by awarding short-term grants (2 months or 4 months as part of a mobility program in a CNRS-affiliated laboratory) to a post-doctoral researcher of Mexican nationality.

The call is open to tenured and non-tenured researchers who have obtained their PhD between 2017 and 2023, of Mexican nationality, and who have demonstrated their productivity through at least one article published or accepted for publication in peer-reviewed journals of recognized academic quality.
