[To be shared] Last week to apply for IFRIS post-doctoral positions - New deadline: March 1st, 2020

The call of IFRIS for Postdoctoral Project is extended to March 1st, 2020

This extension will enable Doctoral colleagues to submit their project
in respect with the condition of their PhD defence. Unfortunately, a
mistake has been left in a copy/past of the message of the previous
year. Therefore, to be eligible, post-doc candidates should hold a Ph.D.
or doctoral degree as on the date of December 15th, 2020 (not 2019!) at
the latest and should have already fulfilled all the obligations for the
acquisition of their Ph.D. or doctoral degree.

In case the candidate do not have their degree by the date of this
submission, he/she should present a reference letter from their doctoral
supervisor certifying that he/she will hold his/her Ph.D. or doctoral
degree, letter is due before June 5th, 2020 at the latest. If an
applicant is selected but does not meet the deadline to obtain his/her
PhD, he/she will loose the benefit of his/her selection.

We hope that this extension will help our doctoral colleague to submit
and we do apologize.

Marc Barbier
IFRIS Director
