Supervising PhDs at the CEA

PhD students are supervised in undertaking and completing a thesis project by an experienced engineer/researcher, as well as a PhD supervisor with an accreditation to supervise research ("Habilitation à diriger des recherches", HDR).

For PhDs funded by a CEA-Industry contract (CTCI), an engineer from the company participates in the scientific and technical monitoring of the research.

For CEA-Region contracts (CTCR), an official from the regional council can also monitor the PhD.
