This is a new type of “tenure track” position started this year in France: a special Associate Professor position, called “Chaire Professeur Junior”, with a fast track to tenured, Full Professor within about 5 years. The general objective of the project of which this position is part is to build bridges between two areas: natural language processing of biomedical texts and integration of biological data.

This new type of Associate Professor position has a reduced teaching load of 64 hours a year, compared to the standard 192 hours of usual positions. The research environment is that of the natural language processing team of the LISN Language Sciences and Technologies department and/or the Bioinformatics team of the LISN Data Science department. LISN is the Interdiscplinary Laboratory for Digital Sciences, a computer science research center with five departments, created in January 2021 from the teams of two former research centers: LIMSI and LRI.

Additionally, the Junior Professor will automatically receive a one-shot 200 k? research grant from the National Research Agency (typically to hire a post-doc or doctoral student, for travel expenses, etc.).

Université Paris-Saclay is among the top 20 universities in the Shanghai Jiao Tong ranking, and the first in continental Europe.
