PhD track in Earth sciences & biodiversity

The PSL PhD track in Earth sciences & biodiversity 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 Life sciences or Earth sciences 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. 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.
