Master 1 & 2
International Track in Physics
The International Track provides a two-year “a la carte” master program for particularly motivated and talented students aiming at preparing a career in academia through an individualized interdisciplinary training program. Students will be counseled by the team of faculty members coordinating the different topical master offers in order to build a coherent curriculum corresponding to their professional project. Generally, it is expected that students of the international track opt for a PhD thesis at the end of their master training.
Fields potentially available to International Track students cover all areas of fundamental and applied physics offered at IP Paris, including in particular theoretical and experimental condensed matter physics, mathematical physics, plasma physics, as well as topics at the interfaces between physics and chemistry, materials science, applied mathematics or biology.
Language of instruction: English; (additional offers in French)
Duration: 2 years
Courses Location: depending on the chosen courses
IP Paris labs involved
- Theoretical Physics Center (CPHT)
- Condensed Matter Physics Laboratory (PMC)
- Applied Optics Laboratory (LOA)
- Optics and Biosciences Laboratory (LOB)
- Irradiated Solids Laboratory (LSI)
- Leprince-Ringuet Laboratory for Particle physics and Astrophysics (LLR)
- Intense Lasers Laboratory (LULI)
- This track prepares for a PhD thesis and later on academic careers in universities or in major research organizations in France (CNRS, CEA, IN2P3) or abroad.
- Depending on the chosen courses
- BSc in physics with highest honors and a personal project that is coherent with the philosophy of the International Track. Applicants are advised to contact faculty members in their field of study well ahead of the application deadline with a statement on their scientific interests in view of the coordination of their proposed study program with a tutor at IP Paris.
- Due to the highly selective nature of the program, applicants are moreover strongly encouraged to also apply to one of the topical master tracks of IP Paris.
- Possibly French (working knowledge of French might enhance the range of options)
Deadlines for the Master application sessions are as follows:
– First session: February 28, 2020
– Second session: April 30, 2020
– Third Session (optional): June 30, 2020 (only if there are availabilities remaining after the 2 first sessions)
Applications not finalized for a session will automatically be carried over to the next session.
You shall receive an answer 2 months after the application deadline of the session.
