Applications to the competition from Friday, October 06 2017 to Friday, May 04 2018 at Midnight.

Application Process

In order to enroll in the doctoral school, you must have a PhD advisor who agrees to supervise the thesis, a research project, and sufficient funding, which must be provided either by an external agency or by the research group or by the doctoral school itself. The funding from French institutions can not be lower than the French nationally defined amount for doctoral candidates (monthly net amount about 1400 €), while the funding from foreign institutions can not be lower than 1200 €. In cases where the funding is lower than this amount, the research group is required to find additional funding to reach the required limit.

Before the student’s application, the PhD proposal has to be uploaded on the proposal submission pages by the advisor.

 

Whatever the planned funding source, you have to:

  1. Fill in the online application form, and choose the pre-proposed PhD project. You will then receive an e-mail containing a personal link.
  2. Provide the following documents in digital format (as PDF files):
    • ID card or passport
    • CV (resume)
    • Transcript of your master's courses, including grades
    • Reference letters by the advisors of your previous internships
    • Reference letter of the considered PhD advisor
    • Possibly, up to 3 recommendation letters (at maximum
    • If you have your own funding (other than CD ED), the financing plan and supporting documents for your envisioned source of funding.
    that must be uploaded on to the website by using the personal link provided in the acknowledgement email

The (not mandatory) reference letters and confidential assessments must be sent by their authors via e-mail to clickme.


Candidatures pour les thèses débutant en


Selection of candidates for an audition

Candidates registered are listed in the table below.

The auditions will take place on Tuesday, June 05, 2018 and Wednesday, June 06, 2018
at ENS - Département de Physique (24 rue Lhomond 75005 PARIS).

Selected candidates will receive by e-mail, approximately 15 days in advance, their date and time of passage, as well as their room and number of sub-jury.


Audition format : The audition lasts fifteen minutes, including a 10-minute presentation and about 5 minutes of questions.
The candidate must presents his cursus (academic training and interships) as well as his thesis project : he/she must devote no more than two slides to his thesis project in order to hilight his/her cursus.

The jury is composed by members of the laboratories attached to the doctoral school and represents various themes. The auditions are addressed to a jury composed of physicists who are not specialists in the field of the thesis, please take it into account. (the composition of the jury is displayed on the jury page).

A video projector and a computer will be at the disposal of the candidates who must imperatively send by e-mail their presentation in PDF (not powerpoint file) at the lastest on To be defined at the email address  clickme, because the large number of candidates does not allow us to take the time to load a file on an external medium.
