People

Supporting permanent professors and the director
At the highest level of world-class research, IHES’ permanent professors and director are its lifeblood. The objective is to go from 6 to 8 posts, a number that has not been achieved since the 1970s.
Creating junior positionsAlways in search of new talents, IHES wants to create junior positions in order to recruit early career researchers and provide them with the best working conditions.
Associate professorships
The Institute has created new chairs for visiting associate professors, so that they can benefit from more favourable conditions, such as the possibility of inviting some of their collaborators.
Hiring postdocs
Increasing the number of post-doctoral positions remains a priority of IHES’ scientific programme and, in the past five years, the Institute has been very active on that front.
Reinforcing the visitor programme
About 200 researchers from all over the world come to IHES every year via our general visitor programme.

Place

Bois-Marie
The Bois-Marie site houses both scientific activity and support services. Facilities include individual offices, meeting rooms, library, lecture halls, scientific secretariat; the site must continue to provide researchers with optimal working conditions.
L’Ormaille
With its 50 accommodation units, the residence “L’Ormaille” is a fundamental asset for IHES in welcoming visiting professors from all over the world, sometimes with their families.

Perpetuity

The strategy of providing IHES with endowed funds to secure its financial future is more important than ever. Endowments currently finance 18% of the budget, a very significant success in the French context, but IHES is determined to go further in its quest for independence.
