The MILYON Labex offers each year:

  • full funding for three years of thesis (CDD), in an academic environment in its research units
  • partial funding (50%) for theses in collaboration with socio-economic partners
  • partial funding for theses in co-supervision with foreign universities
For the 2021 call, at least three full funding contracts and one partial funding contrat with a partner will be offered.

Contract length

Duration of the contract: 36 months


The mission takes place in one of the research units of the Laboratoire d'Excellence MILYON (Institut Camille Jordan,  Unité de Mathématiques Pures et Appliquées, Laboratoire de l'Informatique du Parallélisme, Laboratoire de Physique de l'ENS de Lyon, Laboratoire Hubert Curien ), in one of the academic institutions supervising these laboratories (University Claude Bernard Lyon 1, ENS Lyon, Ecole Centrale de Lyon, INSA Lyon, University Jean Monnet Saint-Etienne).
