Lagrange Institute PhD Thesis Fellowship at UPMC in France, 2015

Lagrange Institute of Paris awards PhD research fellowships in cosmology, theoretical and experimental (astro-)particle physics, or high energy physics. Successful candidates will have demonstrated academic excellence, outstanding potential for creative research, and leadership qualities. The Lagrange thesis fellows will be enrolled in a doctoral school of the Pierre-and-Marie-Curie University, part of Sorbonne. These will include a net stipend of approximately EUR 1,400/month (approx. $1,900/month) for three years and generous travel and research funds. The application deadline is 15 January, 2015.. The ILP invites applications for the fourth class of Lagrange thesis fellowships. These fellowships will include a net stipend of approximately EUR 1,400/month (approx. $1,900/month) for three years and generous travel and research funds. The new Lagrange thesis fellows are expected to start in the Fall semester of 2015. Successful candidates will have demonstrated academic excellence, outstanding potential for creative research, and leadership qualities. Lagrange thesis fellows will be immersed in an internationally visible, world-class research environment in terms of intellectual, and computational resources, an extensive visitors’ program, and significant involvement in the world’s leading astronomical and (astro-)particle physics projects, such as Planck, Herschel, Euclid, CFHTLS, TeraPix, BOSS, SDSS III, VIPER, Square Kilometer Array, LHC, HESS, Auger, etc. The Lagrange thesis fellows will be enrolled in a doctoral school of the Université Pierre et Marie Curie, part of Sorbonne Universités, with access to intensive short courses in cutting edge areas of the field, such as dark matter and dark energy research, theoretical and experimental (astro-)particle physics, recent advances in quantum field theory and string theory. Special short courses will be offered in emerging research methods such as astrostatistics, discovery in petascale data sets, etc. The Lagrange Institute will support yearly summer or winter schools where thesis fellows can meet their future colleagues. All courses will be offered in English and taught by the leading experts in each field – either members of ILP or guest professors, including the Lagrange award holders.. Fellowship is available for PhD thesis programme at the Pierre-and-Marie-Curie University.
