15 new professors and researchers recruited to Sciences Po in 2011-2012
We are proud to introduce 15 new professors and professor-researchers who have joined Sciences Po since September 2011.
The recruitment of quality Professors and researchers is fundamental to the success of an institution of higher education specialised in the humanities and social sciences, a domain in which intellectual and human resources are essential to the establishment’s academic success. In 2009, Sciences Po committed to the creation of thirty new professor and research posts by 2013. This decision will increase the number of CNRS researchers and new recruitments while allowing aging staff members to retire.
