Waves and Matter Doctoral School

L'école doctorale

The Waves and Matter Doctoral School - EDOM - covers quantum physics, dilute matter and optics.

More precisely, the fields covered are quantum physics, optics, atomic and molecular physics, laser physics, plasma physics, nanophotonics as well as the interface domains of these themes such as biomedical imaging or condensed matter. All types of plasmas are represented at EDOM (cold and hot, stellar, interstellar and fusion plasmas), as well as their technological applications. In particular, EDOM is involved in fusion by magnetic confinement.

EDOM is a doctoral school (ED) of the University Paris-Saclay, which enrolls doctoral students for the Faculté des Sciences d'Orsay, the Institut d'Optique Graduate School and the ENS Paris-Saclay.

EDOM is open to a very large number of doctoral student hosting teams (EAD) located in other research centers in our geographical area, such as CNRS, CEA, Soleil, Onera. Ile de France Sud is characterized by a very high concentration of laboratories working in these fields as well as a very large number of scientific higher education institutions with excellent students. In addition, there are major facilities such as Soleil, the femtosecond and attosecond laser servers at CEA Saclay and the C2N nanofabrication facility, research centers of major organizations (ONERA, CEA, CNRS) and industrial research centers (Thales, Horiba, EDF), as well as the Sytematic competitiveness cluster and a growing network of technology start-ups. In this context, EDOM is a link that brings together most of the resources for training in and through research in these domains.

EDOM is naturally involved in the PALM, NanoSaclay and LASIPS labex as well as in the Attolab, Andromede, Cilex, Refimeve and Tempos equipex.

Admission procedure to EDOM

In order to carry out a thesis at the EDOM, the candidate must first be admitted by the EDOM.

The first step is to choose a subject and obtain a favorable opinion from the thesis director.

The second step is the qualification by the Doctoral School, i.e. the examination by the Doctoral School of the candidate's aptitudes. There are three ways to obtain this qualification :

1) Competition for doctoral contracts. The file will be studied in this context.

2) Pre-admission for a funding application (allocation spécifique normalien, allocation spécifique X, DGA grant, CIFRE grant, Ministry of Foreign Affairs grant, etc).

A file must be sent directly to the director of the ED including at least i) a CV of one or two pages, ii) transcripts of grades of L3, M1 and M2 if available, iii) letters of recommendation according to the model available at the bottom of this page (to be sent directly by the internship supervisor to the following email address edom@universite-paris-saclay.fr ), iv) a motivated opinion of the future thesis supervisor, v) a favorable opinion of the laboratory director. 

3) Qualification in the case of acquired financing (financing on ANR project, on European project, on contract with industrial partner, grant from a foreign government).  A file must be sent to the deputy director of the laboratory, including at least i) a one or two page CV, ii) transcripts of grades from L3, M1 and M2 if available, iii) letters of recommendation following the model available on the "doctoral contract competition" page, iv) a reasoned opinion from the future thesis director, v) a favorable opinion from the laboratory director 

Pre-admission is granted by the EDOM Director on the advice of the Deputy Director. This pre-admission is confirmed after an interview with the assistant director of the laboratory. The thesis director and the laboratory director may be involved. It is important to contact the Doctoral School as soon as possible because the admission decision can only be made if the candidate is of a comparable level to the candidates recruited through the competitive process.

The third step is the final admission, which is pronounced at the time of the first registration in the doctoral program, after verification of the required diplomas and the obtaining of funding.

  • These two registrations are done jointly via ADUM. Your contact : Mrs Nadia Chapiteau.
Formation doctorale et suivi

Within the framework of the doctoral contract, doctoral students, in addition to their thesis work, may, for 1/6 of their time, carry out a teaching OR expertise and consulting activity in another institution, OR a mission within the University of Paris-Saclay.

You will find here the procedure note for the establishment of doctoral contracts on non-state budget funding.

* Le décret n°2007-658 relatif au cumul d'activités des fonctionnaires, des agents non titulaires de droit public et des ouvriers des établissements industriels de l'État a été modifié par le décret 2011-82 du 20 janvier 2011, avec comme conséquence une modification de la liste des activités pour lesquelles le cumul est possible.

 

 Doctoral courses

In parallel to their thesis work, all doctoral students must follow, during the first two years, a complementary training that is mandatory and includes three modules.

Module 1 : Scientific Training (50 hours) :

Additional scientific training in the form of two separate scientific modules, each corresponding to a minimum of 25 hours.

This module shall serve :

  • or to acquire additional knowledge necessary to the thesis work: to promote the scientific opening of the doctoral student and the progress of his work (scientific topic to be deepened, or numerical or experimental methods to be acquired),
  • or to deepen the general culture (for example, through a course at the Collège de France. Participation in a summer or winter school may be accepted by the EDOM after the opinion of the director of the Doctoral School as a scientific module.

These modules will be chosen by the doctoral student, with the help of his/her thesis director and subject to the agreement of the EDOM deputy director. They may be of a very diverse nature (option modules for Master1 and Master2 courses, courses at the Collège de France, specific modules offered by EDOM, summer schools, winter schools, pre-doctoral school at Les Houches, scientific networking courses, Fablab courses, etc.)

The EDOM can subsidize these courses up to a maximum of 500 euros.

Module 2 : Professionalization training (30 to 40 hours) :

In order to facilitate their professional integration, a professional module representing a total hourly volume of approximately 30 to 40 hours.

The University of Paris-Saclay offers des formations transversales.

Module 3 : Training in research ethics and scientific integrity

Some sites :

Université Paris-Saclay - Polethis 

Université de Bordeaux  - Fun-Mooc

Each of these two modules will be validated by a certificate of participation signed by the teacher in charge and uploaded in the section "Formation Hors Catalogue" on the personal space ADUM of the PhD student.

Carrière & Alumni

Future of the PhD student

Half of our PhDs find a job in the field of research within the university or large research organizations (CNRS, CEA, ONERA, etc.). Industry is an important outlet. Most of our PhDs work in technical jobs that allow them to make the most of their skills. They are divided between large groups (Thales, Saint Gobain, etc.), SMEs and technology start-ups.

Follow-up and insertion

The student follow-up process is well established. We propose to improve it by inviting the third year students to make a poster presentation at the ED's back-to-school meeting at the end of October. The objective is twofold: each student will have had the opportunity to present his or her work orally during the scientific day in February of the second year and then in the form of a poster at the beginning of the third year; newly enrolled students will thus have an overview of the ED's themes as soon as they arrive.

The EDOM's insertion statistics are very satisfactory. This is the result of a good match between the training courses and the needs of the downstream sector as well as a good selection of candidates.
