Competition implementation

The competitive admission process is held in various stages :

  • Eligibility:  Inria ensures that each applicant fulfils the registration conditions.
  • Pre-selection based on the review of candidates application files:  the committee studies the files of applicants allowed to compete. The committee then draws up a shortlist of pre-selected applicants for the competition who receive a convocation for interviews.
  • Interviews and decisions on acceptability:  pre-selected applicants are then interviewed. After deliberation, the committee compiles the list of acceptable candidates.
  • Acceptance results:  the admission committee reviews the files of acceptable applicants and draws up the list of accepted candidates.

Inria's organization is such that every researcher is normally assigned to a specific project team. A candidate usually specifies in his/her application file the project team to which he/she wishes to be assigned. In this case, it is highly advisable to contact the head of the project team beforehand. 

However, it is also possible to submit an application without specifying a  particular host project team. In this case, if the candidate is declared eligible, one or more project teams may be proposed between the eligibility phase and the admission phase. This assignment proposal will take into account the aspirations of the candidate, those of the team(s) concerned, and INRIA's scientific policy.
