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.

  • It is with great sadness that we learn of the sudden death of Manuel Berthet on Friday 3 December in a tragic road accident. The accident that took his life also seriously injured his partner Maud, whose life is not in danger. Their one-year-old child, Silvère, was unharmed.

A former student of the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Paris, Manuel had completed the Master 2 AAIS course in 2011-2012, before passing the agrégation in physics in 2013. He then started a PhD thesis in the radio astronomy laboratory of the ENS, which he chose to interrupt in 2017 to devote himself fully to teaching.

Manuel was a teacher in preparatory classes at the lycée Chrestien de Troyes.

The physics department of the ENS, and in particular the astrophysics team, his former comrades and colleagues of the preparation to the agrégation of physics of Montrouge, as well as the whole doctoral school, associate themselves with the pain of his family and present them their most sincere condolences.

The farewell ceremony will take place at the Crematorium of Mâcon (Saône-et-Loire), on Monday 13 December at 10:30 am. Manuel would have been 32 years old on that day.

  • 26 November 2021 : Opening of the 2022 call for thesis projects. PhD advisor can submit their PhD projects on their ADUM account up to January 30th, 2022.

  • C’est avec une profonde tristesse que nous apprenons le décès brutal de Manuel Berthet, vendredi 3 décembre, dans un tragique accident de la route. L’accident qui lui a coûté la vie a également grièvement blessé sa compagne Maud, dont les jours ne sont pas en danger. Leur enfant d’un an, Silvère, est indemne.

Ancien élève de l’Ecole Normale Supérieure de Paris, Manuel avait suivi les enseignements du Master 2 AAIS en 2011-2012, avant de réussir l’agrégation de physique en 2013. Il avait ensuite commencé une thèse de doctorat au sein du laboratoire de radioastronomie de l’ENS, qu’il avait choisi d’interrompre en 2017 pour se consacrer pleinement à l’enseignement.

Manuel était enseignant en classes préparatoires au lycée Chrestien de Troyes.

Le département de physique de l’ENS, et en particulier l’équipe d’astrophysique, ses anciens camarades et collègues de la préparation à l’agrégation de physique de Montrouge, ainsi que l’ensemble de l’école doctorale s’associent à la douleur de sa famille et leur présentent leurs plus sincères condoléances.

La cérémonie d’adieu aura lieu au Crematorium de Mâcon (Saône-et-Loire), le lundi 13 décembre à 10h30. Manuel aurait eu 32 ans le jour même.

  • 26 novembre 2021 : Ouverture de l’appel à projets de thèse 2022. Les directeurs de thèse peuvent déposer leurs projets de thèse sur leur compte ADUM jusqu’au 30 janvier 2022.
