Dear Colleague,

The ** <www.ill.fr>*Institut Laue Langevin* opens a new *call for PhD 
The proposal submission deadline is: *midnight Friday 2 November 2018

* PhD projects should be linked to fields of science covered by the ILL 
PhD program:*
Magnetism **, **Materials Science**, **Soft Condensed Matter**, 
**Biology & Health**, **Nuclear and Particle Physics**, **Instruments, 
Methods and Engineering*

Projects can be proposed by any academic researcher authorised to 
supervise PhD students and belonging to a university or affiliated 
institution in one of the ILL's Associate (*France, Germany or The 
United Kingdom*) or Scientific Member countries (*Spain, Switzerland, 
Austria, Italy, The Czech Republic, Sweden, Belgium, Slovakia, Denmark, 

PhD projects satisfying the criteria for the academic in-house mission 
of the ILL's PhD program are put into competition via a transparent 
selection process.
Selection is a two-stage procedure involving evaluation by in-house 
review panels and decisions by the ILL directors.

Notification of *short-listed projects* will be sent out around *mid 
January 2019*. *Final selection* will take place on*5 February 2019*, 
when the ILL supervisors of the short-listed projects are invited to 
defend the project via a presentation. _

_*Scientific excellence* is the main selection criterion. However, other 
criteria will also play a role in the selection process of PhD projects:
--> How well the submitted project contributes to the main mission of 
the ILL PhD program, namely to enhance the academic life at the ILL 
while simultaneously training future experts in neutron science.
--> How well the PhD proposal helps ILL scientists to strengthen their 
scientific profile by knitting close ties with the user community.  The 
ILL co-supervisor should therefore play an important role in the 
definition of the project.
--> In addition, the ILL management has to make sure that a proper 
balance is achieved in terms of scientific topics, ILL instrumentation 
groups, as well as the national distribution of host universities 
corresponding to the PhD proposals.
--> Finally, a student candidate may be proposed for the submitted PhD 
project, in which case the student's CV and cover letter should be 
attached to the email sent to phd(at)ill.fr along with the other 
application documents.  Although NOT a prerequisite for a valid PhD 
proposal, a strong student candidate would be a plus, albeit not a 
guarantee, for acceptance of the PhD project. Full consideration will be 
given to PhD proposals not containing a student candidate according to 
the criteria listed above.

Please follow carefully and fully the application instructions at:
Thank you for your interest in the ILL's PhD programme,

-- The ILL Graduate School
