Each semester of the Jean-Morlet Chair is intended for an outstanding, innovative researcher from a non-French institution, working closely with a Local project leader based at Aix-Marseille Université.
The idea is not only for individuals to collaborate on new research but also for this international programme to be the place where strong synergies are developed between people, laboratories, established and young researchers, doctoral students etc. The chair is open to all areas of mathematical sciences and theoretical physics. 
Note that age restrictions apply due to the fact that the position is within the French Public Service. Click here for more information.

Each semester is built around an ambitious ‘scientific’ programme of events, and a ‘people’ programme that provides additional financial support in order to invite scientists from around the world to CIRM-Luminy.

This initiative is an exciting opportunity to boost the international attractiveness of the mathematics taking place in the Marseille area and to enhance current trends or develop new ideas in all fields of mathematical sciences.
The Chair has staged a high number of successful, internationally-attended events and is an excellent example of the strong collaboration linking CIRM with Aix-Marseille University and the City of Marseille (Ville de Marseille).
