The SPhT has currently about fifty permanent physicists, of whom about two thirds are researchers from the CEA and one third from the CNRS. The laboratory also hosts a number of associates, postdocs and visitors and about ten young researchers preparing their Ph.D.s. The activity of the laboratory relies on about ten support staff (documentation, computing and administration).
