Europhotonics Erasmus Mundus Doctorate

Expiration at 11:59:59 PM on Monday, January 23rd, 2012

Duration of the contract: 36 months (from September 2012 to August 2015)

The Europhotonics EMJD Doctorate offers fellowships and mobility possibilities within the EUROPHOTONICS consortium institutions for EU and non-EU students.

The Joint Doctorate Program on Photonics Engineering, Nanophotonics and Biophotonics is dedicated to address recent challenges of one of the most expanding fields in physics and material sciences. This doctorate program is based on a consortium of excellence research institutes and universities in the field: Paul Cézanne Aix Marseille III University / Institut Fresnel (France), Universität Karlsruhe (TH) / Karlsruhe School of Optics & Photonics (Germany), Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya, ICFO (Insitut de Ciences Fotoniques) (Spain), and Università degli Studi di Firenze / LENS (European Laboratory for Non-Linear Spectroscopy) (Italy).

The goal of the program is to involve doctorate students in cutting-edge research projects profiting from the complementarity between the five partners, and from a wide range of research training and teaching plans that includes fundamental and general sciences, technology, languages and communication, research and industrial management, technology transfer, career exploratory support, international meetings, workshops and conference participation.

This program is dedicated to students with a masters in Physics, Engineering, Optics and Photonics, Biology, Biotechnologies, Nanosciences, selected based on their scientific level and the identified project proposed within the consortium. The students will work under a co-tutelle supervision in at least two collaborative laboratories among the partners. At least one semester will be spent in each of the co-supervising institutions. The students will have to demonstrate excellent research and follow two weeks of training units per semester to obtain a doctorate multiple diploma after their thesis defense.
