The new class of PhD students, post-doctoral fellows and engineer has joined the IAP in the fall of 2023.

During the welcome meeting that was held on October 18 2023, the organization of the institute was presented to the new class, as well as the information they might need and the people they may contact during their stay in the laboratory.

The diversity of the subjects that will be addressed by these young researchers and engineers is large. Representative of this fact, their work at the IAP is funded by many sources: ministerial scholarships (including a specific contract for students from Ecole Polytechnique), a “Physique des Infinis” Initiative (IPI) scholarship, fellowships from the Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales (CNES), a scholarship and a fellowship from the Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR) and from the European Research Council (ERC) (for more information, see Partnerships). The entire staff of the IAP wishes them a fruitful stay, and many rich scientific and technical exchanges.

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