Open PhD positions

    List of thesis subjects to be filled at CEMEF (updated on 28/05/2021)

    Find all CEMEF PhD proposals on this page. The  PhD positions are offered on our two doctoral specialties: "Numerical Mechanics and Materials - MNM" and "Numerical Mathematics, Intensive Computing and Data - MathNum".

    Each year, there are between 15 to 20 PhD subjects available related to the scientific fields covered at CEMEF: forming processes, physical and numerical mechanics, materials and biomaterials, scientific computing. It is also important to note that each PhD project is part of an industrial issue that represents a real scientific challenge.
