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 1422 €). 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 electronically (in PDF format):
    1. ID card or passport
    2. CV (resume)
    3. Transcript of your master’s courses, including grades
    4. If you have your own funding (other than ED’s CD), the financing plan and supporting documents for your envisioned source of funding.
    These document that must be uploaded on to the website by using the personal link provided in the acknowledgement email.
  3. The (possible) letters of recommendation and confidential appreciations will be directly uploaded by their authors. The most relevant referees are the advisors of your possible previous research interships.
  4. If you have your own funding (other than CD ED, CDSN, CDSX or CSC) and if you apply to a PhD project in University Paris-Saclay, you have to be interviewed (10 minutes presentation + 5 minutes of questions) by an admission committee of at least 2 senior researchers from the ED. This interview has to be organized by your supervisor.   A report should be filled by the committee (the form can be downloaded here:  PV d'audition), and sent by email to clickme

Applications for PhD projects starting in

Submission of applications for the campaign 2024 is open starting on Tuesday, 2ndJanuary, 2024
Applications for the 2024 ED competition must be submitted no later than Saturday, 27thApril, 2024

Selection of candidates for an audition

All the applications registered up to now are listed in the two tables hereafter.

The list of candidates selected for an audition will be displayed in the days following the Tuesday, 21stMay, 2024.

The auditions will take place on Monday, 3rdJune, Tuesday, 4thJune and Wednesday, 5thJune 2024.

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


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