Joint PhD opportunities
We are currently recruiting joint PhD candidates to join the Melbourne CNRS Network (MCN). Each supervisory team oversees a pair of joint PhD projects on related, but separate research topics. One project’s home institution is the University of Melbourne and the other home institution is a CNRS-affiliated French partner university.
Candidates spend a minimum of 12 months at both universities, providing a multidisciplinary cohort experience with other MCN joint PhD candidates.
Joint PhD candidates will benefit from the collective resources, networks and expertise of supervisors at the University of Melbourne and the CNRS. Funding for each candidate will include tuition fees, a full living allowance (stipend), health insurance and travel allowance. At the successful completion of the program, each candidate will be eligible to receive a PhD, recognised by testamurs from each of the two universities.
