The Administration and Finance Operational Division is run by the Operational Manager, Armelle Bonpain, who supervises a team of five secretaries. It ensures the smooth running of the INP and supports both scientists and technicians to work in compliance with the university requirements.
All staff members are versatile as they deal with administrative, financial and human resources (HR) tasks as and when required. They provide an essential link between all internal and external parties.
Admin duties: The Admin Department provides reception duties, mailing services and links with the logistics and technical services on the campus.
Financial duties: The Finance Department controls the INP fundings: provision of loans (CNRS and AMU), delivery of contracts and grants at both national and European levels (ANR, European contracts, subsidies to territorial communities and foundations). All staff members take charge of INP fundings on behalf of their teams from inception to completion, including financial reports.
HR: The Human Resources (HR) Department oversees the recruitment process of CNRS and AMU personnel, including temporary staff such as interns, CDD, PhD, post PhDs and guests. It also provides careers advice with training and professional development.
