Objectives of the call for proposals

Institutional environment

  As part of the Paris Seine excellence initiative (PSI), a third Call for Proposals is launched to support research excellence and international development.

The Paris Seine initiative is supported by four institutions: the University of Cergy-Pontoise, ESSEC, EISTI and ENSEA. It has € 7.4 million annually. One of the central challenges of PSI is the strengthening of the scientific potential, the visibility and international attractiveness and the research excellence of the partner institutions.


The Fellowships in Residence Program of the Paris Seine Initiative – Institute for Advanced Studies (PSI-IAS) is an international visiting program promoted by the Institute of Advanced Studies (IAS). Through the hosting in residence of researchers (juniors and senior), for a duration ranging from 4 months to one year, this program aims to promote international research collaborations within PSI and to strengthen the attractiveness of its institutions.

Description of the program

The PSI-IAS Fellowships program will host 10 researchers in residence during the academic year 2019-2020. Researchers of all nationalities are eligible. Researchers who have stayed in France for a total of more than 12 months in the three years preceding this call are not eligible. Researchers are invited for periods of stay between 4 months and one year. Fellows in Residence will have a double affiliation:
