Sorbonne University’s interdisciplinary doctoral programs aim to develop and support research areas that go beyond the disciplinary field of a single doctoral school. These programs contribute to the emergence of a community of young researchers trained at the frontiers of knowledge and disciplines. Doctoral students recruited into these programs are attached to and monitored by the doctoral school to which their thesis director is affiliated.
The selection procedure is done in three steps:
- Pre-selection of doctoral research projects by the program’s scientific committee. Only projects validated by the doctoral schools are examined by the program.
- Putting the pre-selected projects online.
- Students apply for these projects, and doctoral contracts are awarded after a jury of experts has heard the candidates.

Sorbonne University doctoral grant in oncology (applications closed).
The stakes of research in the field of cancer are polymorphous and concern, in addition to the understanding of the processes of carcinogenesis and resistance to specific treatments, epidemiological and even societal issues.
The objective of the doctoral program in Oncology, with the support of the University Institute of Oncology (IUC) of Sorbonne University, is to create a synergy between the actors of Sorbonne University involved in research, teaching and care of cancer patients and to promote the emergence of a dedicated research community within Sorbonne University.
The doctoral program in oncology offers two doctoral contracts to support any innovative research project that will improve prevention, diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, care and/or personalized follow-up of patients.
In order to promote synergy between research teams but also between disciplines (sciences and engineering, humanities and social sciences, medicine), a co-direction of the thesis will be requested. In addition, the thesis director, the main carrier of the project must be affiliated with a laboratory under the supervision of Sorbonne University. Co-directorships with a foreign partner are possible in the framework of a cotutelle. Projects must be validated by the Sorbonne University doctoral school to which the principal applicant belongs.
