For the third year in a row, the Institut universitaire de France (IUF) has chosen one of the Department's permanent faculty members to join its ranks: Jean-Marc ROBIN was appointed Senior Member in 2019, Ghazala AZMAT was appointed Junior Member in 2020 and this year Pierre CAHUC is an IUF Laureate for the innovative nature of his research in labour economics, whether it be the public policies or the microeconomics dimensions of the labour market. He is appointed to the IUF for five years.

Created 30 years ago, the IUF seeks to promote high-level research in universities and to strengthen interdisciplinarity. Every year, the IUF selects new members on the basis of a competitive application procedure - the laureates must demonstrate that they have undertaken innovative and promising research, but must also show creativity, leadership and the ability to share the results of their work with a wide public.

Pierre CAHUC is Professor of Economics at the Department which he joined in 2018. He is a Research Fellow at CEPR as well as at IZA, where he directs the "Labour Markets" research programme. He also co-directs Sciences Po's Chair Sécurisation des parcours professionnels. He is Senior Editor of Economic Policy and Editor of the IZA Journal of Labor Economics. He was a member of the Conseil d'Analyse Economique from 2006 to 2010 and from 2012 to 2016. Prior to joining the Department, he was Professor at École Polytechnique and at École nationale de la statistique et de l'administration économique (ENSAE), where he was the Head of Economic Research at CREST as well as Director of CREST’s Macroeconomic Laboratory.

Congratulations to Pierre CAHUC!
