PhD track in Physics

The PSL PhD track in Physics is a fully-funded 5-year program structured around two phases. During the first phase, students follow courses from PSL’s research master ICFP (Physics) or Quantum Engineering 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 Physics lab. 


Phase 1 | Research Master in Physics or Quantum engineering

PhD track students will choose between two curricula to complete their research master:

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;
  • PSL innovation and entrepreneurship program for those who are interested in tech transfer from academic labs to economic world 
  • PSL PhD training
