Choose France - CNRS AI Rising Talents
As part of the French Strategy in Artificial Intelligence (AI), the Choose France - CNRS AI Rising Talents programme gives to exceptionally talented early-career AI researchers the opportunity to confirm and strengthen their potential to be leading scientists by setting-up a research program and an associated team for a period of 5 years. The programme is open to postdocs and junior professors or researchers with between 2 and 7 years of experience since obtaining their PhD and currently working abroad.
Following a first edition in 2021, the programme is open in 2022 to fil up to two positions. The candidates must demonstrate outstanding track records in Machine Learning (ML) and related fields (computer vision, natural language processing, etc.). Candidates with strong contributions in ML associated to other sciences (neurosciences, biology, physics, chemistry, humanities and social sciences, etc.) are also welcome.
The selected candidates will be recruited by the CNRS in one of its laboratories in France. Candidates are expected to participate to the French Strategy in AI and applications that integrate with initiatives such as the Interdisciplinary Institutes in AI or related local initiatives are encouraged.
The programme offers competitive salaries as well as an environment for research in the form of a package that, depending on experience, may go up to 1 M€ for the period (including gross employer costs for the awarded candidate and other expenses for building the team).
Applications for the Choose France - CNRS AI Rising Talents programme must be submitted on the CNRS job portal starting September 1, 2022. The application deadline is September 30, 2022.
