IPAG participates in or is responsible for several services to the astronomical community as defined by the Institut National des Sciences de l’Univers. These services d’observation are carried out by IPAG personnel, under the responsibility of the Grenoble Observatory (OSUG). A full description of IPAG observation services is available here (in French).
In particular, "astronomes" and "astronomes adjoints" are permanent staff positions that are specific in that they involve research, teaching and a fraction of the time devoted to a service. For more details, see the website of the Conseil National des Astronomes et Physiciens (CNAP, in French).
