HR Support Action for Technology and Interdisciplinary Platforms

Visuel action RH plateformes

The A*Midex university foundation, which is the bearer of the Aix-Marseille site's Idex, is launching a new global HR support action for the Technological Platforms, Interdisciplinary Platforms and other mutualization initiatives of the Aix-Marseille Université site, through a unique mechanism, for the period 2021-2023.

Since 2018, the A*Midex initiative of excellence has provided support to the Technology Platforms and technical tools of the Aix-Marseille site by providing them with additional human resources to develop and structure themselves. The new A*Midex roadmap for 2021-2023 reaffirms its commitment to the development of platforms.

With a budget of 800 k€, the action is concretized by the recruitment of new resources on 24-month contracts (renewable according to the mission, see framing text) for a mission of support and development. The support is therefore exclusively focused on the implementation of additional human resources. This mission is carried out under the responsibility of the academic project leader designated in the application file.

The action is aimed at :

  • platforms with the "Aix-Marseille Technology Platforms" label
  • the structures that will carry the interdisciplinary platform project (TRIPs - Teaching and Research Interdisciplinary Platform): labelled technological platforms, AMU institutes
  • shared tools: technical platforms and joint service units
  • Exceptionally, this action may be aimed at project leaders who have won the "EquipEx +" call for expressions of interest under the Programme Investissement d'Avenir, and exclusively under its axis 2 (Generic).

It is possible to benefit from recruitment support for one of the following five main types of mission

  1. Technical reinforcement
  2. Business development
  3. Support for the quality approach
  4. Development of training
  5. Scientific excellence
  • To apply, Eligible structures must send an application form to the A*Midex Foundation before 27 May 2021**

The indicative timetable of the call is as follows:

  • 27 May 2021 at noon (12:00): Deadline for sending the expression of needs files to the addresses indicated*.
