Doctoral studies and Postdoctoral Fellowships

PSL is proud to offer its doctoral candidates and young researchers a broad array of opportunities for exploring the key challenges facing today’s society. From experimental, theoretical, and incremental research to research into entrepreneurship, the fields of application reach into all areas of science, the arts, engineering, and the humanities and social science.

E-resources, state-of-the-art equipment, libraries, and even in-house museums provide the material support necessary for advancing individual and collective projects. As such, PSL provides the space and technologies scholars need. This, along with the highly collaborative “let’s work together” principle that drives our 14 Labex, 6 IRIS, 90 libraries, and 101 ERCs, paves the way forward for your research goals.
