Who is this program for?
It is intended for students who hold a Master's degree (or equivalent) from a university outside France and who have not worked or resided in France for more than 12 months in the 3 years preceding their recruitment.
The selection of the PPU-IMAGINE program is organized by Institut Imagine and selected students carry out their research in one of Institut Imagine lab.
Why join Institut Imagine?
By joining the program, students gain access to a stimulating and ideal environment for the training and career development of young researchers.
In addition, students can expand their knowledge by taking specialized courses and benefiting from an extensive seminar program with speakers from around the world. Students enrolled in the IMAGINE program will have access to the following activities or workshops offered by the PPU program.
- Workshop on Integrity and Ethics
- French Courses
- Thematic Club
- Robotics workshop
- Meeting with the Dean
- General workshops
- Other PPU social activities (Luncheons)
The call for applications is open from September 18 to November 2, 2020 and students are selected on a competitive basis. Candidates are first pre-selected by the host laboratories and their applications are then presented to a selection committee.
Candidates selected by the selection committee are then interviewed. Selected students start in the following October.
Doctoral students selected to follow this programme at Institut Imagine will benefit from a specific 3-year employment contract with a net pre-tax salary of €2,000 (including health insurance, mutual insurance and provident funds) and the possibility of accommodation at the Cité International Universitaire de Paris.
At the end of their studies (usually three years), students support their PhD according to European guidelines.
