  Disability policy: the 2017 recruitment campaign is open 

“Offering the same opportunities to everyone, this is the goal that INRA set itself almost thirty years ago. INRA’s deliberate policy regarding the employment of staff with disabilities was reinforced by the 2005 French law on the equality of rights and opportunities, participation and citizenship of individuals with disabilities. INRA’s policy has made it possible to develop a series of action plans with solutions adapted to each situation. […] Our aim is to enable staff with disabilities to exercise their skills and competence in the best conditions at the service of our objective of scientific excellence.  Numerous INRA staff members are mobilized and participate in developing a dynamic, diverse and united  community.” Philippe Mauguin, President of INRA, extract from the editorial of the brochure “INRA, accessible to all ambitions”.

INRA exceeds the legal employment rate of staff members with disabilities set at 6% by the French government, reaching a rate higher than 7%. Each year, some posts are exempted from competitive entry and reserved for candidates with disabilities by means of contractual recruitment.

INRA is recruiting junior and experienced research scientists as well as junior and experienced engineers until 27 February 2017. To apply, candidates must fill in an application file. > Apply, find out more

INRA, accessible to all ambitions

Each year, INRA hires individuals with diverse qualifications to fill a wide variety of positions. The institute is looking for candidates of all educational levels, whether armed with a vocational degree, a doctorate, or anything in between. A range of jobs are available, including animal care attendant, experimental engineer, research scientist, accounts manager, or administrative manager. Anyone with the appropriate qualifications can apply.

Many positions are filled via open competitions, and accommodations for any type of disability can be made over the course of the selection process. Alternatively, every year a given number of jobs are reserved for individuals with disabilities; candidates are hired on a contractual basis.
