How to find a lab

The directory, "annuaire.recherche", will open directly to a page called Recherche d’unité (“Looking up a research unit”).

1_
If you know the code of the lab, type that here (the code is a combination of three letters -usually UMR for CNRS units affiliated with universities or other organizations, or UPR, for CNRS in-house labs- and numbers which identify the lab).

2_
If you know the name of the lab, type it (or part of it) here.

3_
If you don't have any of this information, you can search according to the field of research using the scroll-down menu called Section to choose the research field which most closely matches that of the lab you are looking for. (List of the sections)

4_
Sections, often refered to by number, constitute a break-down of the fields of knowledge, and are used to classify job listing for recruitment campaigns.

5_
Once you have selected the relevant Section, click on "Rechercher" to perform the search. You will get a list of labs working in the chosen field.

6_
By clicking on the lab code, you will get more administrative information and a link to the lab's home page. Feel free to make contact with the director.
