  • Support for Research


    The ISCD supports and promotes the development of mathematical and computer methods for high-performance computing and data analysis in all disciplines associated with the three faculties of Sorbonne University. Its multidisciplinary project teams are designing new models and powerful algorithms to numerically simulate the major challenges of chemistry and biology, to analyze large masses of data in the digital humanities or to improve treatment planning in personalized medicine.

    In order to better identify the needs of its project-teams and to support incentive actions outside the research axes of current project teams, the Board of Affiliates of the ISCD proposes a call for research project (CRP) “support to research at the interfaces” open to the members of the scientific community at Sorbonne Université.

    This CRP is mainly aimed at supporting the actions of the ISCD project teams, but funding can be requested for innovative multidisciplinary studies in the field of intensive computing, data analysis, scientific visualization outside the thematic axes of the project teams, in a percentage that will not exceed 20% of the annual budget of the ISCD. For applications outside the project teams, the research-training link will be favored and training actions are strongly encouraged, especially if they rely on collaborative dissemination tools (E-learning, MOOC).

    Submit a proposal

    • Eligibility

      Associate members of ISCD project teams are eligible for ISCD funding, if it is intended to support actions within the scientific scope of this team as defined by the scientific leader of the team. These requests have priority over requests from researchers or professors at Sorbonne Université who do not belong to ISCD project teams.

    • Funding

      The ISCD will be able to finance and support:

      • short stays of high-level scientists in one of the partner laboratories;
      • doctoral grants including an allocation of 5 000 euros (missions, small equipment) for co-directed theses;
      • post-doctoral awards of 12 months including a grant of 3000 euros;
      • fixed-term contract for an expert engineer (3 years max.) for the ISCD team-projects;
      • the organization of events (conferences, seminars, workshops, schools, specialized courses).

      Co-financing (ANR, European contracts, …) is strongly encouraged. The researchers are invited to study the possibility of co-financing the salaries of doctoral students and post-doctoral students recruited on ISCD credits.
