I have been attracted by the ISARA research topics: agroecology, organic farming, water quality … Also interested by the possibility to teach in an engineering school which brings a lot of diversity.
Marie Benoit – Associate Professor, Agronomy and Agroecology joined Isara in June 2019
I was interested in being part of a teaching team that could support students over several years as well as provide individualized tutoring activities. Moreover, my vision of research perfectly matched what we do herz at Isara: combining rigorous scientific questioning and operational challenges, in collaboration with professionals.
Soraya Rouifed – Associate Professor, Ecology joined Isara in October 20198
I really enjoy seeing how wildly creative young people can be when we trust tem. I fell privileged to teach them from their 2nd to their 5th year and to see them grow up and become adults.
Thierry Joly – Professor Animal Science, joined Isara in 1992
What I like most about Isara is how much trust we are given, particulary for personal projects. This fits perfectly with my personal philosophy: always go forward.

Our Human Wealth Policy
On the basis of Isara’s 4 core values, the human wealth policy aims to develop managerial modes which promote initiative and intrapreneurship as well as performance and well-being at work.
That’s why we want our more agile processes to help us win our collaborators’ loyalty, attract and reveal new talent.
Thus, upon your arrival at Isara, you will benefit from a relational dynamic created through orientation and training week as well as a sponsorship system that allows you to “decrypt” the Isara culture and become an active participant in your integration.
Then, to support your performance and your projects, Isara has set up regular assessment and professional reflection meetings such as: an annual objective review, a professional interview every two years and training sessions. In 2018, 72% of staff received training during the year.
Throughout your life at Isara, you will be able to participe in the existing relational dynamics and also in our development projects: in 2018, more than 50% of staff participated in work groups for our transformation. Employees also participated in the co-construction of the new organization. In 2020, they will be able to participate in theelaboration of the ISARA 2025 strategy.
For the past two years, we have embarked on an ambitious project to modernise our campus and focus on the modularization of the workspace at work: sometimes a brainstorming room, a “standard meeting” room, a herbal tea room or a relaxation room. In 2018, our students and employees imagined the new Isara campus, able to adapt to our needs.
