The new class of PhD students and post-doctoral fellows have joined the IAP in the fall of 2018.

During the welcome meeting that was held on November 20th, the IAP directors presented the activities of the lab and the organization of research in France. The diversity of the subjects that will be researched by these young scientists is large. Representative of this fact, their work at the IAP is funded by many sources: ministerial scholarships (including ENS and CIFRE contracts), CNES scholarship, ANR fellowship, and European fellowships (to find out more, see Partnerships). The entire staff of the IAP wishes them a fruitful stay, and many rich scientific exchanges.

The laboratory also congratulates the new doctors, who recently left the Institute at the end of their theses.
