HPS doctoral grants "for non-residents"; in Paris: deadline 15 January

Dear friends and colleagues,

first of all, I would like to wish you a happy New Year. 

I am forwarding you a message from our director, who writes us that there are several doctroal contracts available in HPS at my university (Université Paris Sorbonne Cité), exclusively for students coming from abroad. (Nationality is of no consequence, but the student should not have been resident in France for more than 12 months over the last 3 years.) Candidates must have completed their Masters by 30 September 2016.

Becouse of poor communication, as for now, no student has shown any interest in applying. Given that the deadline is January 15, this means that it is very probably that there will be little competition! 

The start of the doctoral contract is the academic year 2016-2017. They are funded by the Université Paris Sorbonne Cité (USPC) and the European Commission under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie COFUND action. The application portal is open since 1 December 2015 (linked via the INSPIRE website). The deadline for the call is 17h CET on 15 January 2016 .

Could you please forward this news to good students who would be interested in doing their doctorate in HPS at the Université Paris Sorbonne Cité in Paris?

best wishes,
