          Becoming a 2nd class Senior Scientist

A-INRA: Who we are
The Institute:

The National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA) is a state-funded organisation, founded in 1946. In 1984, it
became a national public scientific and technological establishment (Etablissement public à caractère scientifique
et technologique-EPST) under the joint authority of the Ministries of Research and Agriculture.


The missions:

     -    To organise and carry out agricultural and agricultural industry related research
     -    To participate in the development of such research and the expertise acquired.


Key figures:

Over 10,000 people work for the institute, including 4200 scientists and engineers, and over 4640 technicians (ET).
1200 doctorals students and 1000 trainees and visiting foreign scientist hosted each year.
14 research divisions specialising in agriculture, food and the environment.
21 research centres, 400 different locations, and laboratories.
Over 12,000 hectares of experimental facilities or land.
A budget of € 678 million for 2006.


Staff:

Permanent INRA personnel are civil servants, part of the national civil service2
Different laws and decrees regulate their status, career, and leaves of absence. Senior Scientists are Category A
civil servants3.
INRA civil servants are either scientists or ET (Engineers and technicians). Scientists are recruited through open
competitions, organised by scientific disciplines or groups of scientific discipline.

    B -2nd class Senior Scientist open competitions
The recruitment of 2nd class Senior Scientists on “postes affectés” - which can be understood as “assigned
positions”- is organised to cover a specific need. Open competitions for this type of recruitment are organised
upon the request of a Scientific Directorate. On the day the open competition session officially opens4, details
regarding positions offered are available on our website: www.international.inra.fr (select “Join us”). You will
find a specific job profile sheet (profil de poste) for each position offered.


    Important: This type of recruitment is of great importance to INRA as 2nd class Senior Scientists comprise the
                                   Institute’s top senior research and executive staff.

              There is no preferred profile for the recruitment of INRA senior scientists. Applicants have extremely
                                                      diverse profiles.



2nd class Scientist open competitions are regulated by decrees number 83-1260 of December 30, 1983 and 84-
1207 of December 28 1984, modified.



2
  There are three different categories of Civil Service in France: national, local and hospital.
3
  There are different categories of civil servant in France (A, B, and C). Category A is the highest.
4
  The day the departmental order advertising the opening of the session of open competitions is published in the Official Journal of the French
Republic.

                                                                        4
The following will be considered for the selection of applicants for the rank of 2nd class Senior Scientists:

1) Their past missions, duties and activities, as compared with those of scientists under the requirements for
research staff laid down in the research and technology development orientation and programming law:

-      to contribute to the acquisition of new knowledge

-      to help transfer the results of their research to society at large:

       •    Economic and social applications, contributing to general welfare and progress
       •    Dissemination of scientific and technical information and culture, especially to younger people
       •    Training and teaching (general and continuing education) and developing scientific exchanges with other
            countries
       •    Contribution to the general administration of scientific research.

2) Their contribution to the specific missions given to INRA5.

3) Past transfers and secondments (on positions requiring a real change in their scientific activities).

4) Research and scientific work they intend to undertake.

In addition to fulfilling these missions, duties and activities, INRA Senior Scientists are in charge of designing,
developing, and coordinating research and development activities.

The scientific file will be prepared regarding these criteria.

                 INFORMATION ON ASSESSMENT

    A – Report

You must organise your report in two sections:

                 •    The first section will detail the research you have conducted and your personal scientific output
                 •    The second section will address the strategy of research undertaken regarding the missions of
                      a senior scientist

        1 - R es earc h a nd s c ie nt if ic ou t p ut

Assessment of your application will be based on the quality of your scientific file. However, the assessment of
research undertaken and scientific output will not just be based on the number of publications listed. Areas of
research will be taken into account.
The selection boards will also pay particular attention to the following:

-   Quality and variety of publications
-   Consistency and originality of articles enclosed

The selection board will take into account the organisation of the different publications under the different items
listed, when assessing their quality and variety, regarding your area of research. Scientific publications of
importance, such as books, are a clear sign of professional maturity.


        2 - C o mb in at io n of s c ie nt if ic a ct i vit i es c ont r ib ut in g t o yo u r p ro f es s ion a l st rat eg y

INRA Scientists are involved in the following activities:

•   Teaching
•   Tutoring and supervision of graduate students and young researchers (doctoral students and
    postdocs)
•   Scientific expertise and dissemination
•   Partnership, participation in or coordination of research programmes (especially those financed by the
    European Community)
•   Contribution to horizontal missions in research support and research development
•   Management and supervision of research teams


Applicants must go further than simply listing their research activities but should explain their overall professional
strategy within which these activities are conducted. It has been observed that applicants usually describe their
research activities very well but do not provide sufficient detail of their other research missions. You should
consider your different activities as part of a whole and show the links between them, whatever their individual level
of importance or development at the time you apply.

You should emphasize the coherence of your activites as part of your professional strategy and within the
scope of the position applied for.

Scientist open competition.
You are recommended to provide the selection boards with - for example - an annexed list of the theses supervised
and the publications published in this context by the person(s) supervised. Such information would facilitate the
assessment of your application. Providing the selection boards with some brief information on the professional
experience students have obtained after defending their thesis would also demonstrate professional maturity and
sense of management.

•   Partnership (Management of EC financed scientific programmes)

Partnershp (including the management of such programmes) is becoming an important criterion.

•   Specific aspect of expertise and horizontal missions

Some applicants are involved in activities of expertise for research establishments or administrations. They
demonstrate significant competence in duties other than scientific output.
The selection boards will take such experience into careful consideration, especially if they are significant in
duration. They will also appreciate their impact on the pace of primary scientific output.


Moreover, additional experience acquired in other research laboratories, through long-term postdoctoral
fellowships, from other research subjects, etc… will also be taken into consideration. As such experience will vary
among applicants; it is a more complex selection criterion than, for instance, the supervision of doctoral students.


    B - Project
Presenting your research project on the occasion of an open competition is considered an asset for you and INRA.
It will give you the opportunity to elaborate your future scientific activities and research development aims.
You should develop a strategy that will enable you to meet the objectives and goals described in the job profile
sheet.



•   You should address the following in your project:

    -   Defence of research and discussion of problematic aspects
    -   Details on development and feasibility of the project
    -   Characterisation of scientific as well as socio-economic partnerships
    -   Management and administrative aspect of your project

    You should defend the relevance of the research you intend to undertake regarding the socio-economic aspects
    and show the link between the goals of your project and INRA’s project. This is an essential part as INRA 2nd
    class Senior Scientists are required to be able to design, develop and carry out high-level and high-quality
    research, meeting the research aims set.

•   Moreover, if your area of research is on widely-debated issues such as GMO, BSE, cloning, etc you should
    consider the ethical aspects and safety measures required. You will also specify how you intend managing
    external contacts and will address the following:
    - Ethics
    - Application of regulations
    - Experiments requiring special authorization or opinion from the competent authorities




                                                           11
Becoming a Senior Scientist represents a real professional change:
- Supervision of larger teams
- Diversification and broadening of research topics
- Ability to identify and bring together the necessary expertise
- Scientific organisation of the project
You must emphasize the collective dimension of this project, one of the most important duties of a Senior Scientist
being the training and supervision of young researchers. (Please refer to section A-2 above). Your project may
reflect your personal vision but must be within the scope of INRA’s scientific priorities, the requirement of having
responsibilities within the institute and have a collective impact.
The different selection rounds of such an open competition give you the opportunity to assess your personal
scientific sphere and to justify the principles of your research project within the scope of the position applied for.




                                                          12
       SELECTION PROCESS

For each open competition, the selection process will be in two rounds. At each step, applications will be reviewed
by separate selection boards (juries) according to regulations. The composition of each board may be the same for
one competition.



A - 1st Round: SHORTLISTING (ADMISSIBILITÉ)
This round is highly selective.

Eligible candidates’ applications will be reviewed by a specific selection board (jury d’admissibilité).

This board includes a President and a minimum of 8 members including:

-   INRA personnel, selected from a list drawn up by the President of the Institute, upon the advice of the scientific
    council of each relevant Research Division
-   Non INRA personnel/professionals from other government bodies or private bodies, between ¼ to ½ maximum
    of the board, chosen from a list drawn up upon the proposal of INRA’s Scientific Advisory Board
-   One elected member from the Scientific Advisory Authorities

Assessment of application will also be based on reports from designated members of the board, in charge of
assessing each a different part of the mémoire (report). A written assessment report is given to the final selection
board if its composition differs.
Shortlisted applicants (candidats admissibles) will be notified in the same letter of the date and venue of the final
selection examination as well as instructions regarding this examination.
Please note shortlisted applicants are not automatically pre-selected for the 2nd round of any other or future open
competitions.




B- 2nd Round: FINAL SELECTION (ADMISSION)

Shortlisted candidates (candidates admissibles) will be reviewed by a separate selection board (jury d’admission).
The same selection and appointment procedures will apply to this board. This board will include INRA senior
executives and researchers.

The final selection examination generally lasts 30 to 45 minutes and consists of a presentation and an interview.

The purpose of the examination is to clarify details of the scientific file. Shortlisted applicants will defend their
application and specify its interest. They will demonstrate the originality of their application within the national and
international context. The ability to satisfy a board consisting of various professionals including scientists
specialising in different areas of research is significant; it will rely on how clear and precise they will be when
addressing the motivating factors behind their application. During the interview, the selection board assesses each
candidate’s ability to listen and the relevance of their answers. Precise answers are favoured, as they will enable
the board to ask further questions.


C – RESULTS (Résultats)
Applicants are notified of their results after each round. The list of successful candidates is available on- line once
the selection process is completed.

Successful candidates who are not INRA staff members should contact the person in charge to determine
appointment date (contact details will be found on the job profile sheet). They should notify the Human Resources
Department - Recruitment and Mobility service of their answer regarding the assignment proposal and appointment
date. They should return the completed recruitment form and required documents received with their notification of
results to the Services Déconcentrés d’Appui à la Recherche of the research centre they are assigned to.

                                                           13
Selection boards are considered to be the supreme authorities regarding the selection of candidates. Their debates
are confidential. Applicants enquiring about feedback or advice regarding their application should contact the
members of the jury from the research division applied to.

The final selection board draws up the list of successful candidates (candidats admis) in order of merit. If they have
selected a candidate for all positions offered, they may also draw up a further list (liste complémentaire).
Candidates on this list may be offered a position provided all successful candidates have been appointed and a
suitable position falls vacant. Such an offer will be notified by mail, by the Human Resources Department.
However, they are not under the obligation to offer a position. If no one is selected, the open competition is
declared unsuccessful (“infructueux”) and no further list may be drawn.




                                                         14
            INRA 2nd CLASS SENIOR SCIENTISTS:
            Appointment, salary, career

        A - Appointment
     Date of appointment

Successful applicants are assigned the position applied for. The date of appointment is set jointly with the person
responsible for this position and must be on the 1st day of a month. Senior Scientists are granted tenure when first
appointed.

     Moving expenses

Please note that a contribution will be made towards some of the moving expenses incurred. This does not apply if
this is the first appointment in the French Civil Service.


      B - Salary
The system of payment of civil servants is set by law. Each civil servant’s salary is based upon an index of points.
The number of points depends on grade and step level within the body the civil servant is recruited into. The value
of one point is the same for all civil servants.

When newly appointed, each scientist’s first index of points will take into account past work experience7 and
degree. In each case, past career is taken into account when calculating seniority. Former category A civil
servants are appointed at the same index as their previous position or the one directly above.

The gross yearly minimum salary for a 2nd class Senior Scientist is 35 803 €. For a 1st class Senior Scientist it is 44
317 € euros (as of 01/02/2007).

In addition to salary, there is an annual research bonus, a monthly residence allowance, and an annual teaching
allowance and a possible allowance for children.


C - Career
Career and promotion of senior scientists are regulated8.

Senior Scientists are regularly assessed. This assessment is essentially based on the reviewing of the
worksheets and activity reports they provide every year.

With seniority, each 2nd and 1st class Senior Scientist advances as shown below. They may also advance if so
decided by the President of INRA, upon recommendation of the relevant assessing committee.

2nd class Senior Scientists who have been a minimum of four years on the job may be promoted to the rank of 1st
class Senior Scientist if so decided by the President of INRA, upon recommendation of the relevant assessing
committee. However, 1st class Senior Scientist open competitions may also be organised.

1st class Senior Scientists with 18 months of seniority in the third step may be promoted to the rank of exceptional
class Senior Scientist by the President of INRA, upon recommendation of the relevant assessing committee.

Exceptional class Senior Scientists may be promoted to 1st and 2nd step of this rank by the President of INRA, upon
recommendation of the relevant assessing committee.
