The Doctoral School

The STEP’UP (Sciences de la Terre et de l’Environnement et Physique de l’Univers de Paris, Earth and Environment Science and Physics of the Universe in Paris) doctoral school, n. 560, convers a large scientific landscape ranging from Geoscience, Environment and Planetology to the Physics of the infinitely large and of the infinitely small. Every year, more than 55 PhD candidates defend their thesis with the STEP’UP doctoral school. They perform their research within one of six research laboratories, and so do the 310 researchers and faculty members who participate to their supervision.

Over 120 thesis subjects are proposed every year and applications to the doctoral school are open from December to June.

The careers of the doctors continue in research and teaching in French or foreign Universities and in research institutions, in geophysics and environment firms, in jobs related to Space, in risk and insurance assessment, in companies for statistical financial analysis or using large databases or image processing, as well as in the computing and in the banking sector.
