Applying for the ALGANT Doctoral scholarship
The 2013 ALGANT doctorate selection campaign is over. The new selection will be announced in October 2013.
Information for candidates
The ALGANT Joint Doctorate programme is open to all interested graduated students in Europe and elsewhere. The European Union supports the course by financing some six scholarships for doctoral candidates outside the European Union, and four for European ones. Other sources of funding are also available and tuition fees are kept at a very reasonable level.
Every doctoral candidate will have to work on a research project under joint supervision at a minimum of two different institutions of the consortium.
Doctoral candidates interested in applying have to complete the application form.
The ideal candidate must possess an academic degree from a program in mathematics lasting a minimum of five years (Master). A thorough proficiency in English is required.
We expect the candidates to indicate their interest for the ALGANT joint doctorate program and submit on our application site a preliminary description of a possible research project to be carried out at two different partner institutions (see preliminary description form). Candidates may select one of the research projects posted on the ALGANT web site. All of these projects have been discussed by the consortium members. Nevertheless, candidates have the possibility to suggest their own research project. In this case, they should indicate what could be the different partner institutions and who could be the possible advisors.
After the pre-application deadline and a match-making period, applicants are invited to submit a complete application, containing details on their research project. The application is submitted online on our application site.
The ALGANT-DOC commission will select the best projects submitted by the application deadline. It is expected that candidates will be in a position to start work on the project at the beginning of the next academic year. After the selection, a doctoral committee will be in charge of monitoring the candidate's work.
