Future doctorate candidate

From thesis project to recruitment: the key steps


If you hold a Master's degree, an Engineering degree or equivalent*, you can start the adventure of a Doctorate at the ED 397 Physics and Chemistry of Materials. PhD projects duration are 36 months in France.

The Doctorate is part of a close partnership involving :

  • an Institution that delivers the diploma (Sorbonne Universite or Paris Sciences et Lettre), Collège de France, CEA...)
  • a Laboratory or private companie,
  • one (or more) thesis supervisors from ED 397, possible industrial partners, DGRTT (Direction Générale de la Recherche et du Transfert Technologique), SATT Lutech...


The choice to start a Doctoral course at the end of a Master's degree or an Engineering degree is a personal process that requires reflection. It is based in particular on a thorough knowledge of the Laboratories affiliated to ED 397, their own research themes, as well as their thesis project proposals.


First of all... do not hesitate to contact, make an appointment and meet your future thesis supervisors in order to effectively prepare your recruitment as a future doctoral student of ED 397 !


The Laboratories' websites are at your disposal: consult them HERE !


* In the case of a Master's degree or equivalent established outside the European Union, a derogation from the Title will be established by the Director of ED 397.
