Supervising Authorization (HDR)

Direction of theses

Except in special cases, the supervision of a thesis will be entrusted to researchers or teaching researchers with a supervising authorization (HDR), in accordance with the regulations in force.

Supervising potential

The ED "Chemical Sciences: Molecules, Materials, Instrumentation and Biosystems (2MIB)" has in theory a high potential for supervision since it includes 300 HDR for only 300 doctoral students. Although in practice not all HDR graduates have PhD students, this still leaves great flexibility for starting interdisciplinary research projects.

Le doctorat

The Doctorate

The doctorate is a training phase for the doctoral student. It is based on professional experience of research within a research unit recognized by a national evaluation.

The normal duration of the doctorate is three years. All the original scientific work carried out during the duration of the doctorate (the thesis) is the subject of a final dissertation which is defended at the thesis defense.

During his doctorate, the student is evaluated (see page Doctorate advancement) and must undergo a doctoral training.

The entire training process, both in the laboratory and in the doctoral programs followed, constitutes the doctoral project which is validated by the doctoral school.

Inscription et réinscription

Admission and Registration

Pour pouvoir s'inscrire en doctorat de l'Université Paris-Saclay, il faut obtenir une admission dans l'ED 2MIB.

To get a first registration in Doctorate of Université Paris-Saclay, you must obtain an admission in ED 2MIB.

The procedures for admission to the 2MIB Doctoral School were established by the doctoral college during the establishment of the Université Paris-Saclay.

This admission is done on audition by the admissions jury of the Doctoral School (ED).

To be able to pass this audition, it is necessary to elaborate beforehand a doctoral project which must include 3 necessary components:

- a scientific project,

- a thesis supervisor,

- a minimum of 3 years financing.

To gather these 3 points, potential PhD supervisors with funding or wishing to participate in the ED competition submit subjcts on the ED website.

It is mandatory to go through an application on these offers. If the application is accepted by the potential thesis supervisor, an audition is proposed by the jury.

Thesis offers are available on the ED website.

There are few offers in September-October, because the majority is published in March-April, at the time of the financing competitions.

It is also possible to contact professors directly in the laboratories concerned to find out if they have thesis funding or unpublished offers.

The list of laboratories or research units is available on the ED website.

Access reference documents for registration or re-registration.

 

 

Admission

The admission must go through an application process.

Without a complete application file following the process described below, no registration at Paris-Saclay University will be validated.

This process is carried out in 5 steps according to an online procedure on the ADUM portal which requires the prior creation of an account on his personal space. The candidate can only intervene from step 3.

1 - Deposit of an offer by the future supervisor (HDR).

2 - Validation of the offer by the Deputy Director of Program (DAP).

3 - Application of the student on the offer.

4 - Evaluation of the application by the DAP:

the DAP organizes an audition (Tuesday afternoon on the slot 14:00 - 16:00). This is a 10-minute presentation with slides on the academic background, the research project and the match between the two, followed by 10 minutes of questions.

5 - The admission board qualifies the candidate, the DAP validates the application on ADUM and sends an admission form (formulaire d'admission).

Instructions for applying:

For the applicants:

Déroulement du doctorat

Training and Monitoring

The PhD student's monitoring system comprises two levels, the one provided by the host team (thesis director, director of the unit) and the one provided by the ED (director and assistant directors). At the level of the ED, the director ensures the smooth running of the theses, relying in particular on a monitoring committee for each thesis.

The ED and the Paris-Saclay doctoral college offer a catalog of scientific, general and professional courses. PhD students are asked to validate during the thesis at least 50 h of scientific disciplinary courses and 50 h of transversal general and professional training.

 

Monitoring committees

The PhD student's monitoring system comprises two levels, the one provided by the host team (thesis director, director of the unit) and the one provided by the ED (director and assistant directors).

At the level of the host team, the organization of PhD students' days will be encouraged.

At the level of the ED, the director ensures the smooth running of the theses, relying in particular on a monitoring committee for each thesis.

These committees are set up for any new doctoral student as of September 2015.

Each Monitoring Committee is composed of a member external to the research unit and the research project and the Deputy Director of Program (DAP) of the ED in which the student is enrolled (COB, CIM or CPBA).

The external member, researcher or teacher-researcher, is proposed by the thesis director, in consultation with the student. This proposal is sent to the DAP of the concerned program for validation.

The role of the external member is to meet the student every year between June and November, to discuss the progress of the research and all questions related to the progress of the thesis.

The interview will lead to the writing of a summary report and the delivery of an opinion on the re-enrollment of the doctoral student. These will be sent to the ED.

The meeting with the doctoral student may be completed by a discussion with the thesis director.

Form for the external member's report:

This set requires availability. If transport costs are incurred for the doctoral student to meet the external member of the monitoring committee, they can not be supported by the ED.

The re-registration decision will be made by ED direction on the basis of this report, and on the advice of the thesis supervisor.

 

PhD Training

The ED 2MIB and the Paris-Saclay Coctoral College offer a catalog of scientific, general and professional courses. PhD students are required to validate for the duration of the thesis at least fifty hours (50 hours) of scientific disciplinary training and fifty hours (50 hours) of transversal general and professional training.

Validation of training hours:

The training hours will be validated following the process described below.

  • Training offered by ED 2MIB or transversal or non-ED trainings managed by ADUM:
    • Pre-registration or registration in ADUM to validate the choice of training.
    • After participation in the training, deposit in ADUM certificates of participation.
    • Assignment of the hours validated by the training manager of the ED.
    •  
  • Training not managed by ADUM:
    • Before registration, entry of the characteristics of the training by the doctoral student in his personal space ADUM. At this stage, in case of doubt about the ED validation, contact the training deputy director of the ED.
    • After participation in the training, deposit in ADUM certificates of participation.
    • Assignment of the hours validated by the training manager of the ED.

Case of doctoral students teaching:

For doctoral students carrying out teaching as a teaching doctor or as a temporary employee, a training exemption is granted in proportion to the hours of training within a maximum limit of 25 hours of training for 64 hours of equivalent annual teaching time.

The same system of training exemption will be applied for PhD students performing expertise or valuation missions.

Thesis in cotutelle with a foreign university:

Exemption from doctoral training if the length of attendance at Université Paris-Saclay is less than half the duration of the thesis.

Conferences:

18 hours maximum are validated for participation in a congress because a congress is not considered as a training in its own right but as dissemination of scientific results.

Science Days:

Six hours are validated per day of participation. Three hours a day are added in case of participation in the organization of the days.

Training recognized by the ED (non-exhaustive list):

Transverse tranings

  • Transversal trainings offered by Paris-Saclay University: click here.
  • Further training for doctoral students proposed by UPSud: Days or half days. Validation of three hours of training per half day and six hours per day. http://fcdoc.u-psud.fr/

Scientific trainings

ED 2MIB PhD Day: 7 hours of training validated for the day.


As a rule, the master courses are not validated in doctoral training. In fact, a candidate can only be admitted to a doctoral degree if he or she has very good master's level knowledge in his / her field of initial training and the expected masters and doctoral training are not the same. The training in masters focuses mainly on knowledge, methods, concepts mastered and recognized while the doctoral training is intended to develop the scientific culture of doctoral students on the most current fields of research, on what is becoming or what is challenged.

Only the director of the doctoral school who validates the training plan of each doctoral student may exceptionally authorize (or advise in certain cases) a PhD student to follow a master's module as part of his doctoral training.

      • the proposal of 2 reviewers: Name, Function, Establishment + CV if the reviewer is not a Professor or equivalent
    • After validation of the proposal by the DAP, the DOC completes the data of the reviewers on ADUM and contacts Corinne Ruello (CR), the assistant of the ED.
    • After validation by CR, the DOC may print the form, have it signed and forward it to the ED.
    • The form is signed by the DAP and sent by the DOC to the institution's schooling.

    2 - Proposition de Jury - Jury proposal

    The form must be finalized no later than 1 month before the defense (may be done simultaneously with the appointment of rapporteurs).

    • The DT or DOC contacts the DAP and sends him:

    Profesionnal Insertion

    Actions conducted jointly with companies, local authorities, associations, etc.

    In terms of training and insertion, the ED 2MIB pursues many common objectives with the Chemical Society of France. Establishing strong relationships with this association would be a major asset in the integration policy.

    Actions implemented to optimize insertion

    Transversal training, and in particular Doctoriales, strongly contributes to the professional integration of PhDs.

    PhD Students & Alumni

    The group Linkedin PhD Students & Alumni - University Paris-Saclay is a professional network, to which you choose to join or not, aims at creating a space of direct exchanges between the doctoral students and the doctors of the University Paris-Saclay, between doctoral students and their representatives, with doctoral and doctoral associations.

    International

    National and International Mobility

    International mobility, both incoming and outgoing, of doctoral students will be strongly encouraged. Within this framework, the doctoral school will be able to answer calls to European programs of the Erasmus Mundus type (action 1, 2 and 3) and Tempus.

    An important asset for incoming international mobility would be to be able to offer university housing locally.

    Regarding outgoing mobility, PhD students will be encouraged to stay in foreign laboratories.

    Regarding incoming mobility, the high rate of foreign students in the ED 2MIB requires the use of English and French for communication by email and on the Internet. website. Doctoral programs in English, including so-called transversal courses, are offered by co-operators.

    ED is associated with incoming and outgoing mobility for short stays. At the national level, the ED 2MIB, some PhD students carry out a significant part of their work in other French laboratories. Short-term mobility is also becoming more frequent, especially for characterizations with large instruments. This is also true at the international level. Moreover, many foreign doctoral students stay in laboratories, and it would be desirable for these doctoral students to have contact with the ED.
