In parallel to this, he joined Aix-Marseille University (AMU) as an outside lecturer for the Faculty of Science before being contracted as part of the teaching staff in a graduate engineering school. He has been a member of faculty staff at AMU since 2009 and received tenure in 2012 at the Faculty of Science where he specialised in teaching English to non-specialist students, working in particular with future professionals in the audio-visual and environment sectors.

He is a member of the LERMA (Laboratory for Studies and Research into the English-Speaking World) at AMU.
His doctorate deals with the question of cinematographic adaptations of several works of British fantasy literature.

Philippe Hert is a senior lecturer at Aix-Marseille University and a researcher at the Centre Norbert Elias UMR8562, EHESS-CNRS-UAPV-AMU, where he is co-responsible for the "Sciences, Natures and Societies" axis. After studying engineering and gaining initial experience at France Telecom, he turned to anthropology (DEA in Anthropology) and social work (in a reception and social reintegration structure). This field experience enabled him to develop a reflection and analysis on the relationship to knowledge, which led to a doctoral thesis in the anthropology of science in 1998. He published the first existing field survey on Internet use in France. His work then focused on communication practices in the sciences, and gave rise to several funded research projects (ACI from the French Ministry of Research, ANR). Since 2008, he has been working on indigenous knowledge, conducting fieldwork in Bolivia and Brazil. His latest publications focus on the relationship with the body in scientific research.
