Work experience


I  am currently Directrice de Recherche CNRS (DR2),  ie  Senior Researcher/ Professor.

My CNRS job is a liefetime job which I have acquired via a national competition back in 2004-5.  To be  promoted into higher CNRS positions,  I   apply each time to highly selective CNRS national competitions. As a CNRS researcher, I have no teaching or contract research obligations; a CNRS position is portable across French research institutions;  I do not change employer when I move from one place to another. The French CNRS  is one of the first research institutions, with a long and prestigious history.
