What we offer

At the ESRF, we know that our performance as a centre of scientific excellence is tightly linked to the competence and commitment of our staff members. Recruiting competent and passionate professionals who are motivated to contribute, whether directly or indirectly, to the advancement of science, is therefore crucial for our future. In our recruitment process, we make sure we treat candidates with respect, fairness and benevolence, and strive to allow them to express the best of themselves.

We are also aware that our success depends on the synergies that emerge between professionals of different fields and cultures. We are proud of the diversity of our staff, who come from more than 30 different countries, and have always paid specific attention to the promotion of diversity in the workplace. As an equal opportunity employer, we have signed an agreement in favour of the employment of disabled workers and are engaged in the promotion of gender equality both within and outside of our organisation.

The ESRF offers many advantages as an employer. Our benefits packages and wide variety of training programmes contribute and reward employees to fully develop their potential.
