I'm looking at a few CNRS postdoc positions in France, and quite strangely I don't ever see any mention of application procedure. There's an 'apply' button where one can upload the CV and cover letter, but no place to ever upload recommendations. You can check this yourself by going to
and do a quick search. But I'm picking some samples for you to see:
And after I click on 'apply', I go here: see here they're only requesting CV, cover letter and the project, that's all - no references!
Does this mean that the recommendations/referenced aren't necessary for the CNRS postdoc positions at all? It'd be really good to know!
What if one wants to supply some other documents to her/his candidature? How can (s)he upload them? Or is it just not possible?
