A foundation of Aix-Marseille University, IMéRA is an Institute for Advanced Study, a unique research centre where both emerging and top-level scientists can take advantage of residence schemes to carry out innovative research projects.
IMéRA is specifically aimed at fostering cross-disciplinary projects.
It receives scientists and artists of all disciplines (in residence between 3 and 10 months), as well as a few cross-disciplinary teams with joint projects for short stays (2 to 4 weeks).
Research undertaken at the Institute is meant to develop interaction within social science, within science, between social science and hard, experimental and health sciences, and links between art and science.
The Institute thus contributes to the emergence and development of world-class cross-disciplinary research approaches on Aix-Marseille University ground and grooms young researchers for such approaches.
IMéRA also enthusiastically welcomes projects bearing on Mediterranean territories or submitted by researchers from the Mediterranean rim.
In their applications, candidates should clearly demonstrate their interest in cross-disciplinary projects on the basis of their research or itineraries, by:
-providing a list of already experienced cross-disciplinary collaborations or of publications calling for such collaboration schemes; or -proposing to start one such collaboration and specifying its characteristics; or -detailing expected contributions from cross-fertilisation of their own research program with perspectives and intellectual resources of other disciplines.
IMéRA gives preference to high-aspiring research projects conducive to inter-disciplinary collaboration on complex science issues or major society challenges.
Residents carry out their research in connection with Aix-Marseille University (AMU) teams and laboratories or with partner bodies. It is compulsory to include a letter of interest by an Aix-Marseille University researcher to the application.
