Doctoral School Astronomy and Astrophysics for Paris Area

All information on the 2021 Doctoral School competition is available in the enrolment menu.

The doctoral school

The Doctoral School offers physics and mathematics students training in the broad interdisciplinary field of Astronomy and Astrophysics through all of its methods of observation, measurement and computation. The subject area continues to grow every year, covering planets to cosmology, using a wide variety of advanced tools preparing for next generation instruments.

The programme prepares students for all activities in research and related fields, and also for teaching, various cutting edge industries, computer science, instrumentation, communications and other fields.

Each year, about 50 new students come from all over the word and a large number of Master degrees to begin a PhD in one of our laboratories within the Paris area. Grants from a variety of sources ensure that all students can finance their doctoral studies.
