In order to do a thesis at the IRG, the applicant must obtain the prior consent of a research director (a lecturer or a professor with HDR). To this end, we invite you to contact them early (around May or June) by sending them an updated resume, a letter of motivation, an academic transcript of your last degree, and as a minimum a 5-pages thesis project excluding bibliography. In order to improve the conditions for successful completion of the doctoral program, it is noted that you must seek a supervisor whose researches are close to yours and make sure your thesis can be included in one of the IRG's research axes. The website references all IRG's teachers-researchers and their publications. The consent of a research director is compulsory to apply to the IRG.
Any new enrolment -whether it is jointly supervised or not - must be subjected to an opinion by the Laboratory Council. To obtain this opinion, applicants should send the following items to the IRG (email@example.com) no later than September 1:
- A 5-page thesis project (excluding bibliography) stating the thesis director's name (as well as the proposed funding)
- A letter of support from the requested thesis supervisor
- A resume
- A letter of motivation from the candidate specifying the form of funding intended
- Master 2 transcript of records
Projects will then be read and assessed by all members of the Board.
After having obtained a favourable opinion, the applicant has to open a registrer application with IRG secretary (UPEC Campus: Office 100 at the IAE Gustave Eiffel, Place de la Porte des Champs, Route de Choisy, 94000 Créteil; University Gustave Eiffel Campus: Office B228 of the IRG, Bois de l'Etang, Rue Galilée, Cité Descartes, 77420 Champs-sur-Marne).
The register application can be downloaded here : http://www.univ-paris-est.fr/fr/inscription-en-1ere-annee/document-777.html
The IRG secretary will then submit the application to Doctoral School of Organisation, Markets, and Institutions (OMI), of which the IRG is a part.
Any re-enrolment is conditionned by a meeting of the thesis monitoring committee from the third year of research.
Incomplete applications will not be considered.
In parallel of the opening of the register application, the applicant must register with the platform ADUM:
1. Sign in with your IDs on the website: http://www.adum.fr/as/ed/inscription_these.pl?site=ParisEst
2. Update the file and do not forget to mention the number of year your thesis has been registered
3. Print it to be signed by the research director
4. After signature, give it to the office 100 of the IAE Gustave Eiffel (UPEC) or to the office B228 (IRG-Gustave Eiffel) to be signed by the laboratory director or deputy director
The administrative registration (payment of the tuition and issuance of a student card) will then be proceeded.
Since the provision of the Doctoral Studies of April 26, 2011, PhD students are compelled to take 30 hours of classes per year (90 hours for the three years of thesis).
The PhD students must sign in the ADUM database the classes they take and provide a training certificate, for their classes to be validated by the OMI Doctoral School.
If a student takes more than 30 hours, the surplus of hours counts for the following year.
The classes that the student chooses must be linked to and useful for their doctoral research. The student should first take (especially in first and second year):
For every class taken, the PhD student must:
NB: For the "Advice, Study, and Research" Master 2 and the classes organized by the OMI Doctoral School, the certificates are directly sent to the Doctoral School and PhD students do not need to ask for it.
The PhD student must regularly report on the state of their research to their thesis director.
In order to be given opinions and further insights and to take part into the scientific community, they also have to:
1- Report at least once a year on the state of their research within the IRG. This report is to be made during cluster meetings. The dates of those meetings are set before the beginning of the academic year (IRG planning: http://www.irg.univ-paris-est.fr/ ).
2–Introduce their work:
These reports are particularly advised from the second year of research.
3 – Write, submit and introduce one or several communications (or papers) gratifying doctoral work. Although there is no rule on this area, the research can be subjected to two or three communications on the following aspects:
Those submissions should be made to French-speaking reference associations' congresses, and those of big international associations linked to the field of research.
Roadmap of the IRG's recommendations:
Register year in thesis
IRG cluster meetings
Reputed congresses of the specialty
(or in second year)
Working Paper (or state of the research if not made in first year)
Thesis presentation (close to a pre-defense of the thesis) or Working Paper
(if not made in second year)
Fourth year (if the thesis has not been defended in third year)
Thesis presentation (close to a pre-defense of the thesis)
