The center also has a joint team with Inserm in Marseille and two teams based in another European country: one in Bologna and the other in Athens.
It employs 700 scientists and research and innovation support staff of 55 nationalities.
Starting with computer science and applied mathematics, the research and innovation projects of the centre's teams touch all dimensions of digital science and technology:

Would you like to work on challenging projects in an international, innovative and interdisciplinary environment? Every year, Inria recruits interns, doctoral students, post-doctoral fellows, research fellows and research directors, either through a competitive process or on contract.
In order to ensure that young researchers are able to carry out their work in optimal conditions from the moment they arrive, a "Welcome package" is offered to each research fellow (CRCN) and Inria starting faculty position (ISFP) newly recruited to the center. A complementary grant from the Université Côte d'Azur, including a thesis grant as well as a €60,000 operating budget, can be added to this if the research theme concerns strategic subjects for the site.
Inria offers a unique environment for many talented people in the field of technological and software development. The research engineer is the key player in supporting and guaranteeing the production of knowledge and value by research teams.
Inria calls on talent in more than forty research support professions in order to achieve its ambitions, from human resources to administrative assistance and financial management, not to mention communications... The 900 women and men in the support services who accompany research and innovation activities are a source of pride for the Institute and form the backbone of Inria.
