Appel à candidatures pour 5 contrats doctoraux font IFAO
Dans le cadre du soutien apporté aux actions de coopération internationale, le ministère de l’Enseignement supérieur, de la Recherche et de l’Innovation accorde chaque année cinq contrats doctoraux en partenariat entre une École Doctorale et l’une des cinq Écoles françaises à l’étranger (EFE) :  École française d’Athènes,  École française de Rome, Institut français d’archéologie orientale, École française d’Extrême-Orient, Casa de Velázquez (École des hautes études hispaniques et ibériques)  Dans le cadre de ce dispositif, un contrat doctoral est alloué chaque année à l’Ifao.
On notera que cette allocation vient s’ajouter au contingent dont dispose chaque École Doctorale : elle constitue donc à la fois un renforcement de l’aide aux jeunes chercheurs et un soutien à la recherche française à l’étranger. Par ailleurs, l’obtention de l’allocation n’implique pas nécessairement une résidence en Égypte.
Les dossiers de candidature pour l’Ifao devront être déposés sous forme électronique (document pdf unique) sur le site internet de l’Ifao sous la rubrique Annonces / Postes & emplois avant le 30 avril 2019 à 15h (heure du Caire).
