4 THESIS PROCEDURE 4.1 General presentation The doctorate charter At the time of your recruitment, you, your supervisor, the head of your laboratory, and the director of your doctoral school all sign the UEB doctorate charter. This charter is very important and so you must read it carefully. It specifies the reciprocal commitments of the doctoral student, the thesis director, and the hosting organisations (laboratory and doctoral school) in order to ensure that the doctorate runs smoothly. It specifies the rights and duties of each signatory. The respecting of the implementation of this charter is the responsibility of your doctoral school, of the Institut de Formation Doctorale (Doctoral Training Institute), and, as a last resort, of the UEB’s Scientific Committee and President. Although the charter is not a contractually binding legal document – unlike your employment contract – it is, however, a strong commitment that every signatory can assert, including before the university authorities, as it is the UEB itself which produced this text. The following subjects are dealt with in the charter: > The doctorate (principles and definitions) > Recruitment and registration > Doctorate funding and duration > Supervision of the research project > Conditions for the accomplishment of the research project > Monitoring of the research project > Continuing training plan for the doctoral student > Monitoring of the professional project and careers advice > Thesis defence / Oral examination > Publication, confidentiality, and dissemination of the doctoral student’s research work > Mediation procedure Supervision and monitoring of the doctorate A doctorate is a 3-year research project. The person in charge of the supervision of the whole of the project is your research director. Throughout the project your supervisor’s role is: > to give you bibliographical, scientific, and methodological advice; > to formulate your research work plan with you (a 3-year project must be divided into several stages); > to discuss and substantiate with you the results that you obtain; > to ensure that the time limits within the overall timetable of the project are respected; > to advise you on the dissemination of your results, e.g. publications, conferences, and patents; > to enable you to have at your disposal all the facilities and resources necessary for your work; > to monitor relationships with partners, if necessary, even if they delegate to you part of this monitoring; > to ensure that you work with increasing independence throughout the project; > to ensure that you honour your commitments as far as your rate of work is concerned; > to ensure that you integrate well into the research team; > to discuss your professional project with you; > to enable you to attend continuing training courses, and even advise you on them; > to put you in touch with people who are part of their professional network if that can help you to prepare for your future. In order to fulfil these roles, your supervisor must devote a significant amount of his time to you. This is why they can only supervise a very small number of doctoral projects at any one time. The maximum number of such projects is fixed by the UEB’s Scientific Committee, and can be reduced by decision of your doctoral school’s governing council.
