IMéRA calls for applications 2017-2018

, Lire cette page en français , Share

IMéRA is an Institute for Advanced Study of the Aix-Marseille University, a unique research center where both emerging and top-level scientists can take advantage of residence schemes to carry out innovative research projects.

IMéRA receives researchers and artists under residence schemes of 3 to 12 months (depending on calls for applications); it also accommodates a few multi-disciplinary teams with a collective project for short duration stays. Residents work on their own research projects in connection with Aix-Marseille teams and research centers.

Research projects carried out at IMéRA focus on cross-fertilisation within social science, within science, between social science and formal/experimental and health science, and on relationships between art and science, exploring and enhancing the potential openings between such disciplines and the new objects that may be formed there.

Several calls for applications for researchers from all countries holding a position in a foreign institution are currently open until November 18, 2016
