The request must be made to the Service Central des Concours.
We recommend that you also send a copy to the address of the president of Section 17.

We recommend that candidates who have obtained their PhD diploma abroad, in a language other than French, provide a sworn translation of their diploma as soon as they submit their application, to avoid any legal concerns.

“External” DR2 senior positions :
As in previous years, “external” DR2 positions are available for all CNRS Sections and CIDs. INSU and Section 17 would like to emphasize that the integration of the candidate into the French community must be thoroughly prepared in advance, to ensure that this integration is rapidly effective in the event of a recruitment.
