Doctoral School Mechanical and Energy Sciences, Materials and Geosciences (SMEMAG)

The SMEMaG doctoral school (ED 579) aims to support, within the framework of the training of their PhD students, the research teams and units of the future University of Paris-Saclay (UPSaclay) which are committed to pushing back the frontiers of knowledge in the field of Mechanical and Energy Sciences, Materials Sciences and Geosciences. It is positioned around research teams whose approach is based on a permanent exchange between modeling, numerical simulation, experimentation, design, and optimization of systems in an industrial, environmental, and societal context where many challenges are to be taken up on the fundamental level as well as from the application point of view. The doctoral projects of the SMEMaG ED aim to respond to societal issues, particularly in the areas of energy, the terrestrial and planetary environment, transportation, biotechnologies, and nanotechnologies.

The pole of this doctoral school concerned by this program is the fluids and energy pole and the solids pole.

Doctoral school Interfaces : materials, systems, uses

The doctoral school INTERFACES (ED 573) is structured in two poles :

1. Innovative materials and their applications

Research in "Materials Science" is currently aimed at new functionalities, improved beyond the fundamental limits. These frontiers are located at the interface between disciplines such as Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mechanics, Applied Mathematics, etc. This thematic axis concerns studies centered on materials, whether fundamental or applied, where control and progress require a multidisciplinary understanding of interfaces or multi-scale structuring. We can also imagine in this context the development of new crossed characterizations, responding to the constraints of the respective disciplines.

2. Engineering of complex systems

This axis includes research at the interface between applied mathematics, computer science, operations research, economics, management, signal processing... with strong interdisciplinary connotations.

The work in question contributes to the sciences of organizations, to the analysis of systems of interacting agents, and to the study of technical and organizational systems. This axis is part of a permanent exchange between modeling, digital simulation, design, piloting and optimization of socio-technical systems for industry and services.

How to be admitted to the Engineering and Systems Sciences doctoral program via the EOBE doctoral school ?

  • Statement of applications : May 16
  • Appraisals of DUs via ADUM : May 21
  • Convocation of candidates : May 22
  • Distribution of the files to the members of the jury, specifying the rapporteurs of the files : May 22
  • Feedback from the jury members (the rapporteurs) to the competition coordinator : May 29
  • The ED sends the archive to all the members of the jury : May 30
  • Hearings of the candidates + RANKING in main and complementary lists : June 1, 2 and 3

Condition of submission of subjects

An application is considered complete if :

  • The submission of the application via ADUM by the candidate is complete

  • And if at least one favorable opinion of the thesis director (DT) has been formulated from the ADUM space (It is preferable that a free comment of a few lines at the most is submitted in order to detail an argument).

  • And if at least one contact (telephone or in person) has taken place between the candidate and the TD. This point is important.

Please note: A complete application can be submitted up to the deadline (even if it is late and only submitted a few days before 05/17).

Constitution of the files

A student's application must include : 

  • The detailed CV of the candidate
  • Transcripts of grades from M1 and M2, even partial (if for example the M2 has not yet been awarded, then provide certificates indicating the course of study up to the date of application)
  • A letter of motivation
  • Any other information allowing to judge the applicant's background, experience and the adequacy of his/her profile with the doctoral project (manuscript of previous internship, letters of recommendation, etc.)
  • A detailed description of the thesis topic provided by the supervisor who published the proposal
  • Letters of recommendation are not mandatory but are a positive point in the evaluation of the file.

 

  • The HDRs issue an opinion (favorable/defavorable) for each application on their subject

  • The unit directors issue an opinion (favourable/defavourable) with arguments for the applications retained by the HDR thesis directors

ATTENTION, application rule :

  • A researcher who has obtained funding from a doctoral program (GS-SIS/MESR, or ADI, or UDOPIA) in year N cannot apply for this same program in year N+1.
  • A researcher can present only one thesis subject to the ED recruitment competition, all programs included (the same subject can be presented to several programs)
  • The maximum number of applications per subject with a favorable opinion from the thesis director is set at 3.

The jury of the doctoral school will audition all complete applications having received a favorable opinion from the thesis director and the laboratory director (3 applications maximum)

Audition format: The total duration of the interview is 15 minutes (10 minutes of presentation of your background and the doctoral project for which you are applying followed by 5 minutes of questions). The interview is conducted without any written support or presentation. The interview can be conducted in French or English.

  • The same HDR supervisor cannot benefit from two MESR doctoral contracts in the same year, nor two consecutive years.
  • An HDR supervisor cannot benefit from an MESR contract if he/she already directs 5 theses or has a supervision rate higher than 300%.
  • If a doctoral contract has been attributed in the year (N-2) to a supervising researcher of the doctoral school, this parameter will intervene as an element reducing his chances of success in case of equality with another doctoral project presented by another HDR researcher of the ED. The same applies if the researcher / teacher-researcher is already leading four theses.

Composition of the jury

Constituted by the doctoral school's executive committee.
Its composition aims to respect a balance between the ED's themes/poles and the ED's main research units.

  • It includes 3 of the 6 members of the executive committee and 6 researchers/teacher-researchers HDR attached to the doctoral school, that is to say 9 members in total who will attend the oral hearings of all the selected candidates. In addition to these members, there may be a number of substitutes equal to the number of jury members involved in a funding application.
  • Each year, 4 of the 6 external members of the ED board are renewed, and a rotation is carried out among the members of the board of directors, leading to a renewed year-(N+1) jury but keeping a memory of the year N.
  • If possible, the jury will be composed of colleagues who are not candidates for funding of a doctoral project; if a colleague member of the jury of year N happens to apply for funding for a candidate interested in one of his/her thesis subjects, he/she is replaced by a substitute member during the oral hearings and does not speak during the deliberations concerning the candidate for whom he/she is a referent.

The jury will be composed of :  Jean-Charles Arnault (Nimbe-CEA), Imen Bahri (GEEPS), Elie Lefeuvre (C2N), Jean-Pau Adam (C2N), Jean-Christophe Ginefri (Biomaps), Sophie Bouchoule (C2N), Xavier Mininger (Geeps), Mounira Berkani (SATIE).

How the jury works

  • Each doctoral project is examined in detail by at least one reporter chosen among the two members of the jury. Each rapporteur fills out a standard summary form, the model for which is provided each year by the doctoral school administration. All of these evaluations prior to the hearings are made available to the 9 members of the jury before the beginning of the next phase.
  • Carries out the oral auditions (typically 3 days)
  • Produces a main list and a supplementary ranked list of doctoral projects from three types of data: i) the complete files of the candidates, ii) the elements transmitted by the DUs (arguments for each doctoral project), iii) the oral hearings of the candidates
