Internal competitions for engineers and technicians (F/H)

Nearly 18,000 engineers and technicians (F/H) work in research and research support activities, or in administrative functions (in laboratories, regional delegations and at CNRS headquarters). Engineers and technicians (F/H) are also recruited through internal competitive examinations.

The internal competition is a means of internal promotion and, to a lesser extent, internal mobility for CNRS staff. It is a way of recognizing and rewarding the professional commitment of engineers and technicians.
