Finding a dissertation director
Depending on your topic and field, determine who is the best person to direct your dissertation then send them a letter with your file.
Putting together your file
Generally, the file comprises:
- Your M2 thesis—or thesis of equivalent French or foreign diploma
- A dissertation prospectus (NB: depending on the director, the number of pages required can vary from 2 to 15)
- A CV
An interview will then be scheduled with the dissertation director in the CEIAS offices (or via videoconference).
Once the director has agreed to take on the dissertation, the registration file can be compiled.
Registering at the CEIAS
- Fill out the registration form
- Have the form and the PhD charter signed by the dissertation director
- Have the PhD charter signed by the CEIAS director(s)
With these documents in hand, set an appointment with Nadia Guerguadjor drop by her office (No. 710) so that she can enter your file, show you around the CEIAS offices and put your name on the members list and on the PhD-student mailing lists.
Registering at the EHESS
NB: Each PhD program may require its own specific set of documents; check their instructions on the EHESS website
Turn in your complete file to the PhD program secretariat before the specified deadline. (See the calendar and the list of mandatory documents on the EHESS website or in the brochures of the various PhD programs).
Make sure you check the address of the PhD program secretariat before you go.
If the dissertation director has given her/his recommendation, the application file is brought before the Pedagogical Committee of the PhD Program and the PhD Commission of the EHESS.
An APD (Année préparatoire au doctorat—PhD preparatory year) may be recommended by the various authorities (dissertation director, Pedagogical Committee, Tuition Commission) for students who wish to change specializations and/or who may need significant scientific or linguistic remedial work.
PHD FELLOWSHIPS, SCHOLARSHIPS
As a research unit, the CEIAS can host PhD students, but does not have its own fellowship or scholarship funds.
PhD fellowships are granted by EHESS PhD programs. Candidates must apply in accordance with their field and with the support of their dissertation director.
The EHESS website includes a page that summarizes all the student calls.
The same information is provided on the website of the GIS Asie under the “Bourses, prix, contrats doctoraux” tab.
On the EFEO website, see the “Aide à la recherche” tab.
