PhD track in Mathematics and applications

The PSL PhD track in Mathematics and Applications is a fully-funded 5-year program structured around two phases. During the first phase, students draw on courses from PSL’s research master in Mathematics and Applications and start working towards their research project. The research master is a stepping-stone towards the second phase of the PhD track, during which students work on their research project in one of PSL’s labs (CEREMADE or DMA). During that second phase, students are mentored to gain state-of-the-arts research methods, write academic papers, present at academic conferences and prepare for the academic job market.

PHASE 1 | Research Master in Mathematics and applications

PhD track students will complete their research master (Year 2) in the Applied and Theoretical Mathematics (MATH) track.
Students will explore advanced topics in mathematics in an up-to-date, transversal and transdisciplinary manner. They will gain expert knowledge in theoretical and applied mathematics through research-oriented classes and multiple internship opportunities.
Please note: The Master's program (2 years) can be adapted for students who already have a Master's degree (or who have validated a Master's degree Year 1)   

Phase 2 | Doctoral studies

During their doctoral years, students will benefit from the following programs:

  • PSL interdisciplinary courses: PSL is a strongly interdisciplinary university with special courses that cut across our disciplinary graduate programs and are open to all graduate students
  • A CEREMADE Colloquium seminar is organized once a month (Master and PhD)
  • Students  are strongly advised to attend
  • An Analysis and Probability seminar takes place once a week (3 times a month), it is also recommended to participate.
