How to find a PhD supervisor?


To begin with, one must have a general idea of the desired subject area of research.

  • Visit the web-sites of the 8 research laboratories affiliated to the Doctoral School to have an idea of who does what.
  • Contact by e-mail the faculty members which interest you, or by default the head of the desired research group. 
  • You may also contact directly the Office of the Doctoral School by sending a CV, Master’s transcripts, motivation letter and by specifying the desired research area.
