You want to make a thesis in maths or computer science ? And enjoy a first research experience in a laboratory labelized "d'excellence"?

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
  • for partial funding for theses in co-supervision with foreign universities

Contract length

Duration of the contract: 36 months


The mission takes place in one of the Laboratoire d'Excellence MILYON laboratory (Camille Jordan Institute, Laboratory of Computing Parallelism, Unit of Pure and Applied Mathematics, Laboratory of Physics ENS Lyon, Laboratory Hubert Curien ), in one of the institutions supervising these laboratories (University Claude Bernard Lyon 1, ENS Lyon, Ecole Centrale de Lyon, INSA Lyon, University Jean Monnet Saint-Etienne).
