CPJ UJM selected for three chairs

As part of the second wave of the national system of Junior Professor Chairs (CPJ), three UJM chair projects were selected by the MESRI out of a total of 88 higher education establishments. They will allow the UJM to pursue its strategic development in terms of training and research.

As part of its 2021-2025 strategy, Jean Monnet University is deploying an academic structuring plan which aims to accelerate the development of training and research in 4 major areas of specialization which, today, are as many identity markers of the University at the same time as they cover subjects with strong societal stakes. It also makes it a priority to strengthen the link between training and research.

The CPJ projects carried out by Jean Monnet University are positioned on cutting-edge scientific themes : Science and Engineering (Photonics and optoelectronics); polymers, processes, materials, green chemistry, and supercritical fluids; and the economic theory of public decision-making.

  • The first chair, focusing on photonics and optoelectronics aims to provide a better understanding of the degradation mechanisms of materials for optics and photonics in harsh environments. Backed by the RADMEP European master’s degree, it will be directly linked to the establishment’s training-research strategy. It will be based, on the research side, on the Hubert Curien Laboratory (UJM/ CNRS, IOGS), and on the training side of Graduate School EUR Manutech-SLEIGHT and on the physics department of the Faculty of Science and Technology.

  • The second chair focuses on the theme of the economic theory of public decision-making, which is based on the societal issue of the transformation of public action. It is based on the new UJM school, the Saint-Etienne School of Economics and the GATE laboratory (UJM/ CNRS / ENS de Lyon / Lyon 2). The ambition of this chair is to take on the current and future challenges of public action.
    It will propose original collective decision-making procedures for given problemswhich are both optimal from an economic point of view, based on ethical principles, achievable numerically, and efficient from an algorithmic point of view.

    teaching sidethe chair will intervene in particular in the “Political Engineering” Master’s degree, which delivers high-level teaching in English in the fields of decision-making assistance in the public and private sectors, institutional and political engineering, game theory, and artificial intelligence.

    Chair name: Economic Design of Public Action (DECAP)

  • The third chair will be at the intersection of the disciplinary fields of processes and materials science.
    It will make it possible to develop studies that will aim to:
    – intensify the adequacy process and material by improving the efficiency of the process by integrating several functions in a single operation and by reducing the consumption of inputs by optimizing the physico-chemical properties and/or reactive systems;
    make the use of polymeric materials safer to increase their recycling towards currently unthinkable applications by achieving total depollution/purification;
    continuously generate materials presenting usage properties that break with those currently proposed.

    teaching sidethe chair will be heavily involved in strengthening teaching on eco-design and the development of polymer materials and their recycling, and in particular within the mention of the Master’s degree in “Chemistry and Materials Science”, “Plastics” course that Jean Monnet University co-accredits with Lyon 1 University, the Ecole des Mines de Saint-Étienne and the Ecole centrale de Lyon.


The system of junior professorships

The CPJs constitute a new way of recruitment on a research and teaching project allowing, at its end (from 3 to 6 years), after evaluation of the scientific value and the professional aptitude of the agent by a commission of tenure , to access a tenured job in the body of university professors.

The research and teaching project is supported by the establishment in line with its scientific strategy.
The Ministry of Higher Education and Research (MESRI) plans to create 2,000 chairs between 2021 and 2030.
Each chair holder will carry out a service of 64 hours equivalent teaching hours on average per year and will also benefit from funding from the ANR in the amount of 200,000 euros for their research activities.
