Doctoral schools

The doctoral school (DS) is the structure responsible for the recruitment, supervision, training and thesis defense of doctoral candidates. The doctoral schools are divided into four research area within UPMC.

A doctoral school is a group of research units working around a given scientific subject area. It deals with all issues pertaining to the doctorate. It is run by a director, assisted by a Board. The Board supervises and oversees the life of the doctoral school. Doctoral candidates are invited to elect their representatives to the Board every two years.

The doctoral school also offers training, particularly scientific training. It approves each doctoral candidate's Individual Training Programme.

Doctoral programs with scientific interfaces

Doctoral programs are scientific development programs aimed at bringing together doctoral candidates with doctoral research projects with scientific interfaces that go beyond the scientific scope of a single doctoral school. Though doctoral candidates in these programs are supervised by their doctoral school, the program allows them to join an interdisciplinary community.
