Welcoming interns, partners and PhD students
Since its inception, CIRAD has been committed to training in research and through research.
CIRAD takes particular care in selecting, supervising and supporting its PhD students and including them in its research teams. It recognizes that career opportunities for junior researchers are largely dependent on the quality of their thesis.
CIRAD’s PhD training policy is backed by incentive schemes and research grants for PhD and post-doc students working on topics considered to be of strategic importance.
Around twenty new partial scholarships are awarded per academic year.
These scholarships are funded jointly with other organizations such as ANSES, INRAE, territorial authorities, etc.
CIRAD also welcomes students with scholarships funded by other bodies (grants from the French government or their own country, their parent institution, etc.).
PhD training at CIRAD is provided in partnership with doctoral schools in France and elsewhere with an interest in agricultural research in the global South.
CIRAD has partnership agreements with two French doctoral schools:
It also has close links with four others:
