PhD with the SMI doctoral school

The Cédric form recruits 20 doctoral students per year. Each doctoral student is attached to one of the laboratory teams and works under the responsibility of a thesis director and possibly a co-supervisor.

Doctoral studies are carried out within the framework of the Engineering Sciences Trades ( Sciences des Métiers de l’Ingénieur – SMI) doctoral school which is responsible for the smooth running of the thesis.

A thesis is a work that must be funded. The budgets come from research contracts, national or international projects, collaborations with companies (CIFRE system) or funding directly delivered by the host institutions.

Cédric directly awards on average two doctoral contracts per year following a competition which takes place in May. Other contracts are offered depending on the contractual activities of the teams and thesis directors.

For any further information, you can contact Prof. Samia Bouzefrane, in charge of PhD at the laboratory.
