Definition of job profile

When a chair is vacated or created, the profile and fields of activity are firstly defined on the basis of the objectives and priorities of the university or faculty and the requirements of the discipline concerned.

Elements determined during this initial phase include key aspects of the profile, resources attached to the post (administrative and technical personnel, assistants, equipment and premises), the modalities of the application procedure (places and scope) and, where relevant, a possible application procedure whereby a call for applications is issued or candidates are personally invited to apply.
