Researchers

The School currently hosts eighteen members—young researchers engaged in preparing PhD theses (the majority) or doing post-doctoral research that fits the School's mission. These members, who are appointed for a year, renewable for one further year and exceptionally two, are offered advanced training and are closely involved in its scientific activities. The School also receives PhD students in receipt of specific support for mobility, beneficiaries of research scholarships in conjunction with doctoral schools of French universities, and researchers under contract to the pluri-annual programmes. And lastly, it offers residential accommodation to top-level scientific personalities.

There are two directors of studies, one for ancient and mediaeval times and the other for modern and contemporary times, who are responsible for implementing the scientific policy defined by the director of Casa de Velázquez. They supervise the members and the grant and scholarship holders. They play an important part on the editorial board of Mélanges de la Casa de Velázquez and the School's board of publications.
