Career development

International mobility program
Mobility for research staff

mobilité volet 1

Objective: enable researchers / lecturer-researchers to carry out personal projects for career development within the context of an international mobility experience (medium-duration).

The University of Bordeaux has a strong attractivity policy. The talent management policy, which is complementary to the policy, proposes this program that encourages international academic mobility as a driving force for career development. The program also helps transform practices within organizations through skills acquired during a mobility experience.

A “Research staff” mobility experience must be incorporated within the framework of a formalized personal career project. The anticipated benefits should concern priority development policies that are supported by IdEx Bordeaux, namely:

  • internationalization of practices
  • public-private relations
  • educational innovation
  • organizational innovation
  • promoting excellence
  • technology transfer
  • etc.

The program funds mobility grants (to complement the main salary) which vary in their amounts, depending on the target destination (taking into account the cost of living and transport), for a period of 6 to 12 months. Candidates must be permanent employees of a partner establishment of IdEx Bordeaux.
