An academic career is divided into several stages. After graduating, the doctoral thesis provides an opportunity to develop a personal track record in the field of research, acquire methodical qualifications and to create a network in the research community. Depending on the model chosen for the doctoral thesis, the position and the funding, different levels of participation are required in the teaching activities and the self-administration of the university.
If you remain in the academic world after acquiring a doctorate, it is essential that you extend your scientific independence while assuming responsibilities in managing research projects and giving courses. Each discipline involves different requirements. Profiling during the post-doctoral phase must target the possibility of applying for posts in the medium-term offering long-term prospects.
