Applications

Your thesis project

You wish to apply for a thesis, but you still have questions about the thesis process, the choice of your subject, life in a laboratory, etc. : here is a FAQ that can help you. You can also find information about the thesis, funding, the post-thesis, etc. on the website of the CJC (in French).

We remind you that it is essential to contact and meet the thesis director who proposes the subject you wish to apply for. At the time of the meeting, ask for the contacts of former doctoral students or post-doctoral students so that you can discuss with them the progress of the thesis, the science of your thesis subject, your future thesis director, your future laboratory, etc.

Application

Applications must be made online, from 1 February 2022 until 21 April 2022 (23h59 CEST), using the Candidater button at the top left of the form describing the thesis topic. No other applications will be considered, sent by email or by standard mail. You will receive an acknowledgement of receipt from the Doctoral School. If you think you have filled in your application correctly, but do not receive an acknowledgement of receipt, please contact the ED directly at ecole-doctorale.astro@obspm.fr.

To apply for a subject, navigate to the subject file, and use the Candidater button at the top left of the page.

The application file must include the following documents :

  1. A full CV detailing previous research experience, including the actual duration.
  2. A letter of motivation explaining how you have constructed your project to do a thesis in astrophysics, the qualities, skills and expertise you have acquired to undertake this project
  3. A copy of all academic results, with full marks.

These documents must be submitted in your application file by 21 April 2022 (23h59 CEST) at the latest.

At least one letter of recommendation from a person other than the thesis director must be sent to the Doctoral School by email ecole-doctorale.astro@obspm.fr.

The supervisors give a favourable or unfavourable opinion on your application via ADUM before the selection on file. If you have not contacted the thesis director, the opinion may be very negative !

If your application is accepted for an audition, you will receive a convocation on May 10th, 2022. If for some imperative reason you are unable to attend on the day of the convocation, please inform the doctoral school immediately.

Dual application

Until last year, it was possible to apply for two subjects open to the Doctoral School competition. This possibility is not open for the 2022 competition.

Of course, it is still possible to apply to a subject open to the competition and to a subject funded by another funding agency (ANR, ERC, ...).

  • 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.
