1. Assistant professor positions are full-time positions dedicated to young researchers with a PhD, such as post-doctoral students. These positions are similar, in terms of teaching duties, to those of maître de conférences in French universities. A prior qualification of the applicant by the national CNU is however not required. Monge positions are full-time tenure track faculty positions, in the form of a three-years contract renewable once. The Monge faculty member is expected to defend his habilitation à diriger les recherches before coming up for tenure. After 6 years, the holder shall be promoted as Professor, provided that the evaluation of his or her research, teaching, and related activities is positive.
