Sciences Po’s ambitious recruitment policy aims to maintain a faculty of exceptional quality while advancing our commitment to gender equality in hiring and career development.

In 2006, Sciences Po has signed the European Charter for Researchers and The Code of Conduct for the Recruitment  of Researchers (PDF, 5Mo).

Today, Sciences Po, together with its partners from Sorbonne Paris Cité, wants to go one steps further and aims to obtain the Human Resources Excellence in Research label, which is part of the Human Resources Strategy for Research (HRS4R) of the European Commission.

Sciences Po has produced an action plan (PDF, 457 Ko) in order to continue improving the management of  the careers of its academics.
