The recruitment of doctoral students is done on the one hand according to the qualities and merits of the candidates, whether they come from internal or external training at the university, and on the other hand by taking into account the adequacy of their training with the subject under consideration.
As a reminder, the doctoral contract is a three-year employment contract signed by the doctoral student and a public institution of higher education and research. It is characterized by a remuneration fixed by Ministerial Order.
