Academic Training Year 2022 - 2023 - subject to modification


Internships and Supervised Projects

During the second semester students will do a supervised research project (internship) of variable duration (minimum 3 months, average 4/5 months).

The subject of the internship will be freely chosen by the students according to their interest. If needed, tutors will orient in identifying a suitable research subject and/or project supervisor.

We warmly encourage our students to visit the research pages of the laboratories associated to the master ( Ceremade - PSLand DMA - PSL) as well as of other research laboratories to identify potential directors and contact them directly. Students who want to conduct their research internship outside the Paris region can apply for financial assistance from the Paris Mathematical Sciences Foundation ( more details here).

With prior written approval from the program director, the research internship may be replaced by an internship in a private company, as long as it has a sufficient research component.
