Postdoc on France | پستداک در فرانسه

پیدا کردن آفرهای پست داک (جاب آفر، پوزیشن)
برای پیدا کردن آفرهای پست داک، جاب آفر یا پوزیشنهای علمی و اپلای برای اونها، مراحلی که بطور عمومی باید انجام شود به شرح زیر است (و بدیهی است که شرایط میتواند بر حسب مورد متفاوت باشد):

برای آشنایی با دانشگاههایی (اساتیدی) که پست داک میگیرند، باید در سایت دانشگاهها، و سایتهایی مثل ResearchGate, LinkedIn, ABG, indeed, APEC و PostdocOpportunities … بگردید. و سعی کنید به همه آفرهایی که با تجربیات و تخصص شما همخوانی دارند با “دقت و حوصله” پاسخ دهید. توجه داشته باشید که برای هر آفر باید یک رزومه و یک انگیزه نامه مجزا نوشته بشه! یعنی کاملا پرسونالیزه و بر اساس خواسته های اون آفر باشه تا شانس شما رو در پذیرش بالا ببره.

مدارک لازم برای اپلای
مدرک دکترا، احتمالا پستداک یا پستداکهای سابق، رزومه تحقیقاتی، لیست مقالات، آشنایی با تکنیکهای آزمایشگاهی و تکنیکهای اشانتیوناژ (نمونه برداری) ، آشنایی با نرم افزارها (حسب مورد) و … (که بر حسب رشته میتونه متفاوت باشه)، یعنی باید به پروفایل پستداک یا پوزیشن مربوطه مراجعه کنید تا ببینید چه مدارکی دقیقا مورد نیاز هست.

بعد از پذیرفته شدن
بعد از مکاتبات با استاد و احتمالا مصاحبه با گروه مورد نظر و جلب نظرشان برای پذیرش، استاد یا مسئول دبیرخانه دپارتمان مورد نظر برای شما نامه ای تحت عنوان convention d’accueil صادر میکنه که برای درخواست ویزا ضروریه، و در مواردی هم دیده شده که برای صدور این نامه از شما بیمه مسافرتی هم بخوان به اندازه طول دوره.

تماس با کامپوس فرانس
مرحله بعد تماس با کامپوس فرانس است: نامه کنوانسیون، cv و پاسپورت روبه کمپوس فرانس ایمیل میزنید، و از VFS درخواست نوبت میکنید.

ویزای پستداک
ویزای پستداک، ویزای تلنت هست، برای مدارک مورد نیاز به سایت کامپوس مراجعه بفرمایید.

ترجمه مدارک
برای ترجمه مدارکی مثل شناسنامه و مدرک دکتری، سعی کنید از مترجمین مورد تایید سفارت استفاده کنید (بدون مهر دادگستری).
برای پر کردن فرم فرانس ویزا، نیاز به مشخصات محل اقامت در فرانسه دارین که بایستی پرینت گواهی محل اقامت (attestation d’hébergement) رو به VFS تحویل بدین.
معمولا استادتان میتواند در پیدا کردن مسکن کمکتان کند، حتما در اولین مرحله بعد از پذیرش از ایشان بپرسید و راهنمایی بگیرید، و یا میتوانید از طریق این صفحه رزیدانس مورد نظرتان رو پیدا کنید.

حقوق ماهانه پستداک
حقوق پست داک در فرانسه از 2100 تا 5800 یورو* در ماه میتواند برحسب رشته متفاوت باشد، که معمولا در همان پروفایل آفر ذکر میشود.
* حقوق دریافتی پس از کسر مالیات و دیگر کسورات قانونی برای یک حقوق 2100 یورویی حدود 1600 یورو و برای یک حقوق 5800 یورویی، 4500 یورو در ماه خواهد بود.
* میزان حقوق نوشته شده در پروفایلهای شغلی بین 500 تا 1000 یورو میتواند بر حسب تجربه و تخصص بالاتر یا پایینتر باشد.

مالیات
بصورت کلی درصد مالیات بر درآمد یک نفر در سال بشرح زیر است: (آمار سال 2021-2022)
تا   10084 یورو در سال،   0 درصد
بین 10085 تا 25710،    11 درصد
بین 25711 تا 73516،    30 درصد
بین 73517 تا 158122، 41 درصد
از  158122 به بالا،        45 درصد.

هزینه زندگی در فرانسه
خرج زندگی در فرانسه برای یک دانشجو در سطح لیسانس تا دکترا بطور متوسط بین 400 تا 600 در ماه هست، بغیر از پاریس که میتونه حدود 600 تا 900 باشه. اما برای پستداک، با توجه به حقوق دریافتی، میشه زندگی راحتتری داشت، و بسته به خونه اجاره شده و … هزینه ها متفاوت خواهد بود، اما بطور نرمال میشه با ماهی حدود 700 تا 800 یورو در ماه (یک نفر) و 800 تا 1000 یورو (برای دونفر) زندگی راحتی داشت.

ساعت کاری
ساعات کاری هم معمولا با توجه به پروفایل کاری میتونه متفاوت باشه، ولی بطور معمول بین 9 صبح تا 5 عصر هستش، شنبه ها و یکشنبه ها هم تعطیل هستید

امکان اقامت بعد اتمام پست داک
بطور کلی بعد از 5 سال اقامت در فرانسه میتوانید درخواست اقامت دائم و پاسپورت فرانسوی کنید. که با توجه به پیچیدگی شرایط آن، در پست دیگری به آن خواهیم پرداخت. (بزودی…)

POST-DOCTORATE IN FRANCE
If you have a doctorate, do not hesitate to come and do a post-doctorate in France. Thanks to the links between the world of research in France and international laboratories, you will be able to make many contacts in your field, expand your network and ensure the launch of your career in research.

THE STATUS OF POST-DOCTORS IN FRANCE
In France, the duration of a post-doctorate varies from 6 months to 3 years. A post-doctoral fellow is considered a full-fledged researcher. Experiments, publication of articles, animation of seminars, participation in conferences… he participates fully in the activities of his research laboratory. His annual salary for a full-time position can range from 26,000 to 70,000 euros net per year.

THE POST-DOCTORATE AT THE UNIVERSITY
Universities recruit post-docs under the status of temporary teaching and research attachés, or commonly known as ATER. The latter can then continue their research while delivering approximately 200 hours of teaching per year. These hours include lectures, tutorials and practical work.

HOW TO FIND A POST-DOCTORATE IN FRANCE?
Post-doctoral offers are regularly published on various websites, starting with the Campus France doctoral portal in the post-doctoral offers section.

You can also directly consult the post-doctoral offers published on the sites of French universities and public research organizations such as CNRS, Inserm, IRD, Inra, Inria, Irstea, Cirad or even the Pasteur Institute.

Do not hesitate to also consult the sites of the Laboratories of Excellence (LabEx) which offer funded post-doctorate offers. The ABG, Academic Positions and Euraxess sites also bring together many offers in different specialist fields.

To find funding for your post-doctorate, apply to the Prestige Postdoc program. Managed by Campus France, it makes it possible to co-finance a postdoctoral stay of one to two years in France.

HOW TO FINANCE A RESEARCH TEAM IN FRANCE?
The European Research Council (ERC) grants funding to young researchers, two to seven years after the doctorate. Apply for the Starting Grant which can finance your stay and that of your research team for five years. It can reach a maximum of 1.5 million euros. 25 teams are funded each year to carry out projects in the social sciences, life sciences or physical sciences.

ATIP-Avenir is a joint CNRS and Inserm program which also allows you to finance your medical science research team.

Public transport on France

Knowing the local public transport system in a new country can be challenging, particularly if you don’t speak the local language.
If you live in France, it doesn’t matter whether you’re commuting, in Bordeaux or touring around Paris, it’s a good idea to know what to expect from French public transport (transport en commun).

You may see lots of options (formule ou forfait) for buying a ticket, based on your situation (your age, student or not, working or not, …), so it’s better to check them before going out!

Public transport in the cities

Fortunately, there are good public transport systems in France. You can travel in the cities by subway (métro), bus and/or Tram very fast and with a reasonable price. In each city, you may find different transport network system which I introduce some of them (you may find easily the rest on the internet).
* If you are student under 26 years old, or on the period of searching for a job, you may find attractive prices for your transport in these networks:

Bordeaux : infotbm.com/fr

Dijon : divia.fr

Marseille : rtm.fr

Nantes :  tan.fr

Paris : ratp.fr

Rennes : star.fr

Strasbourg : cts-strasbourg.eu/fr

Toulouse :  tisseo.fr

 

Travel between the cities
I can introduce you the train network of France, the SNCF trains, which has some categories (speed, time, class, price, …) you can find them on their website. Please attention that, if you buy ticket(s) sooner, you will pay cheaper.

Train travel in France : www.sncf.com

You can also find different services of buses with fairly good quality services, like FlixBus that provides cheap services. 

BlaBlaCar is also a reasonable, good and fast way for voyaging between the cities in France and Europe.

Validation of your Visa

What is visa validation?

What Does Visa Validity Mean? The term “visa validity” refers to the state of a visa being considered “valid”. This means that the visa can be used.
When a visa is granted, it is valid until a certain date. During this period of validity, it can be used to enter the country that issued it.

Upon your arrival in France, you must validate your long-stay visa valid as a residence permit (VLS-TS, visa long séjour valant titre de séjour). You have three months to take the necessary steps.

How to find a Residence ?

Finding a house and accommodation for foreign students, especially Iranians, is one of the biggest problems. We suggest that you finalize your housing status before entering to France. Many students just need a temporary (and unfortunately sometimes fake) certificate or attestation to get a visa, which after, a very small number of them may be lucky and find a place to rent soon, but often they have to spend weeks in hotels. It will cost them a fortune, and they will have some administrative problems due to not having a fixed address.

We suggest that you start your search as soon as possible. And be sure to book a place, even temporarily, to have a place to stay and put your belongings upon arrival. Then you have the opportunity to seek a suitable housing for your permanent residence more comfortable.

To find suitable accommodation:
First, contact your university. Some large institutions and universities offer accommodation or places for housing of their students. So, to register for an accommodation, you must contact the CROUS Accommodation Center of the university where you are enrolled. Check also the “Housing” or “International” section of the CROUS website for information on room allocation at your university residence.

You can also get information through the following sites (priority is given to scholarship students):

https://trouverunlogement.lescrous.fr

To take advantage of this, you must complete your “International Residence” file between January 15 and May 31 before the start of your school year.

Cross dormitories are the most popular accommodation for students due to many advantages, such as no charge, no separate water and electricity, and no separate internet, etc. As well as benefits such as low rent (about 400 euros in Paris and an average of 200 euros in other cities) and the possibility of benefiting from the CAF housing allowance.

And if you can not register for the CROUS, consider a private and/or a semi-private accommodation. Private student dormitories are a good choice, with prices slightly higher than CROUS, but have relatively more advantages, including group living, furnished rooms, internet, laundry, gym and …

You may use these sites also to find you desired house:

adele.org
bedandcrous.com
en.location-etudiant.fr
immojeune.com
kosy-apparthotels.com/residences
logifac.fr
lokaviz.fr
residenceetudiante.fr
residencesartemisia.com
trouverunlogement.lescrous.fr
studelites.com/fr

and this last one can be a temporary solution:
airbnb.fr

The colocation is also one of the solutions, in which you will be living with a student or other students, which will have a relatively lower rental cost, and if your roommates are from other countries, you will get acquainted with other languages ​​and cultures.

This method also has advantages and disadvantages that I will explain to you in the future.
Some of the best sites for collection:

lacartedescolocs.fr

The next solution is to stay with a French family:
Some international students choose to live with a French family to learn about French culture and language. You will have a room in this system, with all the necessary facilities for a normal life. You will have one or more French speakers and many other benefits. And of course, you have to respect the internal laws of that family such as arrival and departure times, and so on.
There are many sites in this field, one of which we introduce is CoHomly

To book a house, it is better to have the following documents:
These documents can vary depending on the type of residence and the requirements of the owner, but in general, a copy of the following documents is required in most cases:

Identification documents:
Residence card, if you came to France with a visa,
Student card or certificate for the current year,
A letter from your guarantor and his identification documents.

Find a guarantor
In France, people who want to rent an apartment, whether foreign or French, almost always have to have a guarantor. Your guarantor must be French.

If you do not have a guarantor, other solutions are available to you, for example, VISALE, which is a free deposit for renting an apartment or a room in a student dormitory for students of 18 to 30 years old (there are some exception for +30 if you work, see the site for more details). We recommend that you start this process as soon as possible, even before you arrive in France, as you do not need to have an address in France to obtain a VISALE certificate.

If you do not have VISALE conditions or the owner of your accommodation does not know it, you can also use the services of the GarantMe site.

Good luck 🙂
