Hassan Sadeghi

The aim of this directive is to specify the academic level and promote the career and professional mobility of scientists. EPFL therefore defines academic titles corresponding to different levels, establishing the process for the awarding of these titles.
It deals with academic titles only. It does not deal with the function or employment conditions of scientists.
