Stratégie d'établissement

The profile of this tenure track position is in line with the priority orientations of the CNRS COP, in the theme "Mathematics for Humans in Interaction with Planet Earth", which is obviously related to the major societal challenge of "Climate Change". The explicitly interdisciplinary aspects are also part of the priorities of the CNRS, and join the creation of the Institute of Mathematics for Planet Earth (IMPT) as well as the two PEPR MathsVives and TRACCS (under evaluation).

Stratégie du laboratoire d'accueil

All the laboratories envisaged have teams working in interaction with geophysicists, and the tenure should make it possible to reinforce these collaborations and to widen their thematic field. These interactions should be facilitated by the systematic presence of a geoscience laboratory in the university environment. The topics addressed will obviously depend on the host laboratory.

Stratégie Internationale

The objective of this position is to recruit an internationally recognized personality with a strong potential to supervise young French and foreign students. It will also be intended to strengthen and develop links with international partners.

Résumé du projet scientifique

Natural disasters are a major environmental, societal and economic issue, in connection with the problem of climate change. It is necessary to predict their occurrence and to understand and model the mechanisms that cause them. For example, avalanches, floods or pyroclastic flows (eruptions) involve multiphase flows that are particularly difficult to describe and study (theoretically or numerically) and the contribution of mathematics, in addition to geoscientific experiments carried out in the field or in the laboratory, is therefore crucial for understanding these systems and predicting their behavior. Similarly, the use of recent multi-source (satellite and terrestrial observations, etc.) and multi-type data generates large masses of data that require the development of new models and call for various mathematical tools.
The development of multi-agent, multi-physical, multi-scale systems, the study of their properties, their numerical approximations, and therefore predictive models cannot be done without the development of associated mathematics: dynamical systems, instabilities and transitions, partial differential equations, probability theory, data assimilation, quantification of uncertainties, statistics, ..., in interaction with physics, earth sciences, ecology, biology and computer science in particular. The CNRS is the only organization in France that ensures the interdisciplinarity necessary for the success of this large-scale project at the service of society.
The person recruited for this tenure track position will have to position himself/herself on one of the themes described above.

Résumé du projet d'enseignement

The person recruited will be involved in high-level teaching with a mathematical specialization. He/she may be asked to propose interdisciplinary teaching in the themes of the tenure track.

Environnement Financier

  • Total financé (dont package ANR) : 200 k€
  • Total du projet : 200 k€

Diffusion scientifique

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.

Science ouverte

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 of the socio-economic and cultural ecosystem of the project


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.
