The visitor programme represents the institute’s most important scientific activity. Each year, around 200 researchers are selected by the Scientific Council, after an application procedure. Drawn by the spontaneous and sometimes unexpected interactions that the Institute makes possible and encourages, visitors stay on average for 2.5 months.
Associated professorships provide considerable flexibility for organising scientific activities, with the possibility of inviting collaborators and organising events, and chair holders can stay for longer periods at the Institute.

This chair was created in 2009 with the Université Cergy-Pontoise.
Chair in Analysis
Frank Merle is studying the singularities of non-linear partial differential equations. He is a member at Université de Cergy-Pontoise of the CNRS "Analysis, geometry and modelization" lab (UMR 8088). His research themes arise out of hard analysis and have an important impact on mathematical physics.
This chair was created in 2006 thanks to the trust and support of Schlumberger and is dedicated to topics at the interface with high technology.
Schlumberger Chair for mathematical sciences
research director at CNRS. She was the director of the Integrative Biology and Molecular Genetics (SBI-GeM) unit at CEA, in which she led the Epigenetics and Cancer lab and the Epigenetic Aspects of Cell Proliferation and Differentiation team.
Schlumberger Chair for mathematical sciences
Ray Goldstein is the Schlumberger Professor of Complex Physical Systems in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics of the University of Cambridge. He holds the Schlumberger Chair in 2017. His research interests span from statistical physics to nonlinear dynamics and geophysics, with particular emphasis on biological physics, both theoretical and experimental.
The Israel Gelfand Chair was created in 2014 in honour of the great mathematician. It symbolises scientific excellence and the sharing of knowledge, two of the Institute’s fundamental values. Israel Gelfand himself came to IHES more than ten times to carry out his research.
Israel Gelfand Chair
Francis Brown is a Research Fellow at the All Souls College in Oxford University since September 2015. Before that he was a CNRS Researcher at IHES.
Israel Gelfand Chair
Samson Shatashvili is the director of the Hamilton Mathematical Institute at the Trinity College, Dublin where he holds the University Chair of Natural Philosophy (1847). He was holder of the Louis Michel Chair at IHES from 2003 to 2013.
Israel Gelfand Chair of mathematics
mathematician at Princeton University (USA). An analyst of partial differential equations, he works on general relativity. His current research is directed at the mathematical theory of black holes. He also works on the dynamical formation of trapped surfaces and singularities.
Israel Gelfand Chair
Spencer J. Bloch is R.M. Hutchins Distinguished Service Professor Emeritus in the Mathematics Department of the University of Chicago.
The Louis Michel Chair for Theoretical Physics was created in 2000 in honour of Louis Michel, permanent professor in physics from 1962 to 1992.
Chaire Louis Michel
Ali H. Chamseddine is Professor at the American University of Beirut, holder of the Louis Michel Chair since 2009.
Louis Michel Chair
Eliezer Rabinovici is Leon H. and Ada G. Miller professor at the Racah Institute of Physics, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and holds the Louis Michel Chair at IHES since September 2015. His area of research is theoretical high-energy physics, in particular quantum field theory and string theory.
This chair was created in 2013 in honour of René Thom, a mathematician and permanent professor at IHES from 1963 to 1990. It is funded by the Simons Fund for Biology at IHES and supports a researcher and their team, working on theoretical biology.
René Thom Chair
Robert C. Penner is Visiting Researcher at the University of California, Los Angeles, Centre Distinguished Professor, Centre for the Quantum Geometry of Moduli Spaces, Aarhus University, Visiting Professor at Max-Planck Institut für Mathematik in Bonn and at University of Tokyo.
