Master and PhD fellowships in Mathematics

Save as a favourite

Every year EUR MINT (Mathematics and Interactions in Toulouse) offers several Master and PhD fellowships in Mathematics.

The MINT Master and PhD program is strongly research-oriented and designed to follow students for up to 5 years leading all the way to the completion of his/her thesis. In addition to standard courses in Toulouse, MINT promotes summer schools and series of lectures named “Masterclasses”, all revolving around research topics of current interest.

The MINT fellowships provide competitive funding as well as a number of complements including travel expenses to Toulouse, tuition and university fees, as well as financial support to attend conferences and schools either in France or abroad.

In scientific terms, MINT relies on the faculty of the “Institut de Mathematiques de Toulouse” (IMT). The IMT counts over 200 tenured faculty members covering a large range of contemporary research in both Pure and Applied Mathematics. 

The call for applications for the academic year 2023-2024 is now open. 

EUR MINT offers the following opportunities for the next academic year:

  • 2 to 4 PhD fellowships (monthly net salary 1,580€)
  • 9 to 15 Master 2 fellowships (1,200€ per month) and 6 to 10 Master 1 fellowships (1,000€ per month)

Closing date for Master fellowships: January 27st 2023 at 10.00 p.m (Paris time)

Please note that the call for PhD fellowships will open on February 1st 2023 

All application files must be submitted online

Selection of students

Selection of students admitted to MINT program is based on the student’s record and academic merits. It is possible to join the program at three different moments of your studies, namely:

(a) As a M1 student: In Europe, M1 is commonly identified with the 4th year of study in Mathematical program started immediately after high school. Some standard courses at the level in question would be differential geometry, Fourier transform, a standard course on ODE-PDE, Probability and Statistic. More details on the M1 program in Toulouse 

(b) As a M2 student: M2 is the last year of study before being able to officially start your PhD thesis. M2 is therefore essentially equivalent to the 1st year of a PhD program in North or South American countries (e.g. Canada, US, and Brazil). The year of M2 is concluded with the preparation of a “M2 report” on a chosen topic and under the guidance of an IMT faculty member: this report plays the role of the “qualifying exam” in the aforementioned countries in the sense that after doing it you are able to enroll in “thesis preparation” which is our PhD program.

(c) As a PhD student: As indicated above, by “PhD program” it is meant the elaboration of the PhD thesis which is supposed to take (up to) 3 years. To apply for MINT PhD program (or equivalently to a PhD fellowship), you need to provide a thesis project endorsed by an IMT faculty member who also agrees to become your supervisor in case your application is successful. It is therefore recommended to contact prospective thesis supervisors among the IMT faculty beforehand.
