Postdoctoral positions


BIENVENÜE post-doctoral programme


BIENVENÜE is an international post-doctoral fellowship programme aiming at attracting talented scientists to develop their two-year project in Breton laboratories. BIENVENÜE is coordinated by Région Bretagne and will be implemented over a period of 5 years, with 3 annual calls of 25 24-month fellowships (2021, 2022, 2023).

What are we aiming for with BIENVENÜE?

  • Attracting international high-level post-doctoral fellows, and therefore reinforcing human research potential of Brittany’s research in the long term
  • Increasing attractiveness of Breton leading research and innovation domains
  • Supporting the implementation of Breton RIS3 – Regional Research and Innovation Strategy – and therefore contributing to the territorial development

As co-funded programme by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MCSA) COFUND scheme, BIENVENÜE implements key elements of the MSCA DNA.

Design your own research project

As BIENVENUE fellow, you will have the full latitude to carry out a research project you have designed yourself. You are encouraged to develop this project in coordination with your future supervisor, if you already identified one. Projects ranging from fundamental to applied research are welcome, as long as they relate to the Breton RIS3 (see below).

BIENVENÜE fellows are strongly encouraged to work in a international, interdisciplinary and/or intersectorial way. You are incited to include one or several of these dimensions in your research the way it seems the most relevant to you. In particular, it can be as a mobility, named “secondment”, in another laboratory or a company.
