Cofund MathInGreaterParis

The MathInGreaterParis Fellowship Programme, cofunded by Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions H2020-MSCA-COFUND-2020 offers  37 fellowships in the framework of the European Horizon 2020 programme “Marie Sklodowska-Curie Co-funding of Regional, National and International Programmes”. This is a 3-year call for applications for 2-year postdoctoral fellowships  in Mathematical Sciences and theoretical Computer Science in the “Greater Paris Region" (Ile-de-France in French), in France. This offer is spread over 3 calls in 2021-22, 2022-23, 2023-24.


The aim of the COFUND MathInGreaterParis is to put the know-how and efforts of its participants together and to unite and renew the international postdoctoral programmes in Paris Region. Research projects will be hosted in one of the laboratories of MathInGreaterParis network in the Paris Region area:



The novelty of MathInGreaterParis training is that in addition to a well-established research-oriented training, an innovative training for becoming "ambassador of mathematics" will be provided.

Selected fellows will be invited to question themselves on the expectations of the extra-academic world, namely, companies, institutional partners, young people, general audience.

The "learning by doing approach" will be inforced in the program: fellows are expected to interact with their environment in order to adapt and learn. We wish to train them on communication with society.

3-i secondement will be financially supported: fellows have to spend minimum 10 days (in two years) in a professional immersion in line with their research project in: 

- an International secondement: this means a in laboratory out of France


- an Interdisciplinary secondement: this means in a laboratory of a different discipline: biology, chemistry, medicine, etc…


an Inter-sectorial secondement: this means in a non-academic sector: industry, private company, public non-academic institution, bank etc...
