    Pros

    CNRS is one of the best research institute in Europe. It offers several postodoctoral fellowships without teaching duties all around France.

    Cons

    A short postodoctoral fellowship does not allow to proceed to much in the research, because as soon as you start you should start looking for another position.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest to offer postdoctoral fellowships of at least 2 years, to give continuity to the research.

    Simple process. I prepared an application with resume and a detailed research project. After this first step I have been interviewed. The interview was about my past research experiences and my future research projects.
