3 ADMITTANCE TO A DOCTORAL SCHOOL 3.1 General presentation Application to a doctoral school is a matter for a team made up of the doctoral student, the thesis director, and the laboratory. The first stage of the application procedure is therefore to make contact with the laboratory that best corresponds to your field of interest. Alternatively, you can contact the director of the doctoral school, who will direct you to a laboratory. A doctorate is based on an original and formative research project, which must enable the candidate to become an international expert in his scientific field within 3 years, and to acquire a variety of skills, not only technical and organisational but also interpersonal. Doctoral admission procedures 1. Preparation of doctoral research projects >> Actor: Research laboratories are responsible for the formulation of doctoral research projects because of their knowledge of the state of the art relating to their scientific disciplines. Each doctoral project is supervised by a thesis director. >> Content: A doctoral project is made up of a research subject, and technical, human, and financial means – including pay for the doctoral student – which are combined to ensure that all goes well and that the applicant has the required profile. >> Diffusion: Information on doctoral projects is widely published and circulated by laboratories and doctoral schools to encourage the greatest number of applicants. 2. Applications >> Actor: Applicants for admission get to know about doctoral project offers, reply to them, and contact those in charge of the projects. >> Content: Applicants must provide the documents required for their application (CV, covering letter, and any other document(s) requested in the offer). 3. Admissions interview: The admissions process includes one or more interviews, firstly with the thesis director. Then, depending on the type of funding the project will receive, the applicants may have to have another interview or oral examination in front of an interview panel from the doctoral school to which the laboratory is attached. 4. Signing of the employment contract: Once the application has been accepted by the thesis director and the doctoral school (and if other partners are involved, e.g. a company in the case of a CIFRE agreement or nonFrench laboratories in the case of a jointly supervised ‘cotutelle’ doctorate), the doctoral student signs an employment contract. 5. Signing of the doctorate charter: Finally, the student signs the Doctorate Charter, along with all the other actors involved. The Doctorate Charter gives details of the rights and duties of each participant, and although the signing of the charter has no legal contractual value, its symbolic value is that it indicates the end of the admissions procedure. 6. Academic registration: Once admitted, the doctoral student proceeds to their university registration.
