Research director at CNRS
The body of the research directors at CNRS (National center of the scientific research) is, with that of in charge of research at CNRS, one of the two bodies of Fonctionnaire S researchers of CNRS.
Since the law suggested by Jean-Pierre Chevènement in 1982 and its developments by the decree of 1984, the research directors at CNRS are recruited by external contest, which is founded on the examination of the file of the candidates (including their titles and their preceding publications). The organization of the profession, the methods of the evaluation and the advance of the research directors, like those of the civils servant of CNRS, are also governed by this law and its decrees on enforcement of a law. It is useful to specify that the use established in the mediums of research wants that the researchers avoid names lending to confusion with " the director of CNRS" , hierarchical name, and which they prefer speech of the " research directors in CNRS" in order not to confuse a rank with the direction of the organization.
The recruitment competition of director is open in-house to in charge of research to the CNRS of first class being three years old of seniority in this rank and, into external, to the holders of a doctorate or an equivalent diploma justifying eight working years of the trades of research (twelve if they postulate with the first class). Are regarded as working years of the trades of research the activities which were accomplished in an establishment of research or higher education, public or deprived, French or foreign. These years correspond to a remunerated research activity carried out within the framework of a work contract, public or deprived, or of a recruitment in the capacity as civil servant.
The candidate must join to his candidature a management report giving a report on his titles, work and publications and a report/ratio on work which he proposes to undertake. He must also specify main developments of his career in the card “track records”.
The organization of the body
The Enquiring S holders of CNRS are civils servant of the French State. For this reason, they raise of the general status of the Public office. They are currently governed by two complementary decrees:
- the decree n° 83-1260 of the modified December 30th, 1983 fixing the statutory provisions common to the bodies of civils servant of the scientific and technological public corporations;
- the decree n° 84-1185 of the modified December 27th, 1984 relating to the particular statuses of the bodies of civils servant of the National center of the scientific research, text specific to the personnel of the CNRS which comes to supplement, specify or derogate from certain provisions of the decree of the above mentioned December 30th, 1983.
The body of the research directors at CNRS includes/understands three ranks:
- research director of 2nd class (DR2);
- research director of 1st class (DR1);
- research director of exceptional class (DRCE).
The evaluation and advance
The researchers are held to provide, each year, a report of their activity and, every two years, a management report which is examined by the National committee of the scientific research, authority of evaluation of the researchers and the laboratories.
The advance of level inside each rank is carried out automatically according to the seniority held in the level. Advance with the rank of CR1 (in charge of search for 1st class), DR1 and DRCE exclusively takes place with the choice, i.e. by decision of the managing director, after opinion of the National committee of the scientific research. The researchers can request their promotion as soon as they join together four years of seniority in the rank for the passage of DR2 with DR1, and 18 months of seniority from the 3rd level of the rank of DR1 for the passage of DR1 with DRCE.
Each rank comprises several levels which make it possible to determine the remuneration of the researchers. The monthly gross salary of the research directors lies between 3.000€ and 6100€ (in September 2007 evaluations). To these basic salaries is added an annual premium of semi-annually poured research, ranging between 650€ and 1.275€ (according to the body and of the rank) and, if necessary, of the family supplements.
