Phd in France Website

The Embassy of France in India and CampusFrance India are pleased to announce the launch of the website
France is the third most popular country in the world among foreign students: each year out of the 10,000 students getting their PhD certificates in France, 40% are foreigners.
The PhD positions are scattered among the various laboratories and it is difficult to find them.
This site aggregates the offers of the laboratories and universities in France. It helps in making research simple for the Indian students (as well as for all Anglophone students) wishing to pursue a PhD in France.
  For the majority of the scientific doctorates, the student gets a 3-year employment contract for a gross amount of approximately € 1,700 / month (1300 € net). In most laboratories, English is understood, the thesis may also be written in English. However, for the subjects of social sciences and law, a B2 level of French may be required.
We invite Indian students seeking to do a thesis to sign up on where they can automatically find the offers posted and remain updated of the new offers as and when they are published on the site.
