This profile reflects the CNRS' strategy to propose a set of CPJ projects in line with its priority dedicated to interdisciplinarity and the link between science and society. This profile has been developed to co-construct interdisciplinary research (at the crossroad of the sciences of the universe, ecological and environmental sciences, humanities and social sciences) and transdisciplinary research in connection with the stakeholders of the territory to respond to local societal issues. Some of the objectives of the Performance contract of the CNRS are likely to be addressed (health-environment, territories of the future, climate change) through this project, without exclusivity.
The geographical frameworks of this CPJ constitute a strategic axis for the development of the CNRS's research-action tools, notably through the creation of a "Zone Atelier (LTSER Platform)" in territories with strong ecological, human or social evolution that are currently lacking. Such a LTSER Platform represents an open-air laboratory for studying human-environment interactions in all their environmental and cultural diversity. The question of resource management, both terrestrial and marine, will be at the heart of the project. It will be a question of building and carrying out an inter and transdisciplinary research project integrating the ecological and social dimensions in order to better determine the stakes linked to these socio-ecosystems, their richness, their functioning, their dynamics and their possible resilience in the face of threats linked to the rapid changes of the territory and to the climatic and health risks.
The present project is part of the national strategy of the CNRS through its national research infrastructure "Réseau des Zones Ateliers, LTSER infrastructure", which currently consists of 15 labelled zones atelier/LTSER Platforms. This network is one of the two pillars with the CNRS research infrastructure OZCAR on the critical zone of the national mirror of the European project eLTER of long-term research on socio-ecosystems. Strong interactions will have to be established in this national and European framework.
Stratégie du laboratoire d'accueil
This recruitment responds to the strategic need of the host laboratories (UAR 3456 LEEISA in French Guiana and UAR 3278 CRIOBE located in Perpignan and Moorea in Polynesia) to co-construct an academic research in close connection with the societal issues of these territories particularly sensitive to climate and anthropic pressures. The aim will be to strengthen the links between the different fields of expertise in ecology, humanities, social sciences and earth sciences on the issues of resilience and sustainable management of resources. This recruitment will benefit from research stations with in situ accommodation in biodiversity hot spot sites, technical platforms allowing breeding of ecologically interesting species (insects and amphibians in French Guiana, marine species in Polynesia), high performance analytical platforms in biochemistry of natural substances and analytical chemistry, boats and mobile barges specifically designed to explore sites of interest. Both units are also involved in long-term monitoring (several decades) of biodiversity and environments. This profile has been built in support of territorial projects in workshop areas (French Guiana, Polynesia) in coherence and consultation with the strategies of institutional and local partners of the sites.
The Chairholder will have to implement actions and partnerships in the thematic field and commit to submit a project in the framework of European calls for proposals (ERC, Horizon Europe Consortium, etc.) during the 4 years of his/her contract.

Résumé du projet scientifique
The current environmental crisis raises questions about the long-term use and sharing of resources, spaces and territories. The heterogeneity of social and environmental dynamics calls for a spatialized approach to the territory in an inter- and transdisciplinary perspective to better understand the functioning and trajectories of socio-ecosystems and to accompany public policies in terms of transformation towards sustainability. The candidate will develop sociological and ethnographic methodologies with local stakeholders (local populations, communities, government services, user associations, environmental protection associations, nature reserves), of a qualitative and quantitative nature, to address issues that cut across the social sciences and life sciences for the sustainable management of resources. In addition to his/her ability to analyze the social, cultural and political dimensions of ancient and contemporary modes of governance of natural resources, the candidate is expected to conduct in-depth research on local ecological knowledge, economic and social practices related to the use of natural resources as well as the insertion of the latter in local cultural and political contexts. The international insertion of the candidate's research activity will be particularly appreciated.

The dissemination of the results will be done through world-class scientific productions : publications, patents, software... In addition, the results will be communicated to various targets such as scientific communities, media, decision makers, general public, schools, etc., with an adapted calendar. Specific tools may be developed such as websites, newsletters, meetings, international symposia, summer schools and conferences.
The CNRS is developing a strong policy in favor of open science. Open science consists of making research results "as accessible as possible and closed as necessary". As such, the CNRS aims to make 100% of the texts of publications resulting from the work of its laboratories accessible, in particular through deposit in HAL. The data produced must also be made available and reusable, except for specific restrictions. In addition, the guiding principles of individual evaluation have been revised in accordance with the DORA declaration, to be more qualitative and to take into account all facets of the researcher's profession.
Science et société
The relationship between science and society is now recognized as a full dimension of scientific activity. The project will develop this dimension in synergy with all the partners. The resulting research work will contribute to informing public decision-making. Participatory science initiatives may be initiated with actors from the project’s socio-economic and cultural eco-system.
The activity will be evaluated in particular on the basis of scientific production (publications, software, patents, etc.), on institutional and private partnerships formalized by contracts, on international presence, on the promotion of work to multidisciplinary scientific communities, on innovation and its transfer to society and on scientific dissemination to non-specialist audiences.
