Chairholders have the opportunity to apply for a permanent position at French Research Institutes such as CEA, CNRS and INRIA or the Universities and Engineering schools that jointly created Digiteo.
Digiteo Chairs include a salary for the Chair holder, infrastructure and overhead support, research equipment, and general expenses related to the chairholder’s research program. Digiteo grants may also fund PhD students, postdoctoral researchers and engineers to work with the Chair holder.
The holder of a Digiteo chair is supposed to reside in the Saclay area for a significant duration, at least equivalent to the time he (she) receives a salary from the chair. During his/her stay, the Chair holder is expected to significantly and visibly contribute to the scientific activity of Digiteo. Moreover, the chair holder will be asked to give at least a plenary lecture to present his/her research to the Plateau de Saclay ICT research community.
