Call for applications: CoFund "Artificial Intelligence for the Sciences" doctoral program
Deadline for application: 26 February 2021
Led by Université PSL, the "Artificial Intelligence for the Sciences" doctoral program launches a call for applications. 23 PhD topics are available at the interfaces of AI or massive data processing.
This unique, structuring and international project aims to create a research community from multiple PSL laboratories and schools, along with a dozen of private and public partners. AI4theSciences will co-fund for 26 doctoral fellowships on the interfaces of AI or massive data processing.
The future PhD fellows selected for the "Artificial intelligence for the Sciences" project will receive a specific training on their concentration and also benefit from weekly seminars and conferences to develop a set of skills in connection with AI and Machine Learning, writing popular science articles, Open Science, cross-disciplinary skills, etc.
Each doctoral student will benefit from a joint supervision: a supervisor by a PSL expert in the chosen subject, and a co-supervision by a specialist in AI techniques or big data – who may work for laboratory outside PSL or for a private partner located in France or in Europe. Applications for PhD projects are open from November 17, 2020 to February 26, 2021. Laureates will begin their doctoral project in Autumn 2021 and will be awarded a PhD employment contract for the duration of their PhD.
There are no requirements based on nationality or age, but applicants should not have lived or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in France for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately before the deadline of the call (MSCA Mobility rule), namely between the 27th of February 2018 to the 26th of February 2021
Located in the heart of Paris, Université PSL is one of Europe’s leading research-intensive university. PSL was ranked 36th worldwide in the 2020 Shanghai ranking, and 28 Nobel laureates as well as 10 Fields medal winners are among past and present PSL researchers and professors.
PSL includes nine Component Schools and two Associate Members and works closely with three research entities leading to research and education in all disciplines including Science, Humanities, Management and Art. Its academic community draws from the full potential of PSL’s 140 laboratories, building large-scale, growth-generating programs fueled by innovation and an interdisciplinary approach.
