Every year, the Group recruits PhD candidates in a variety of scientific and technical fields related to networks, service platforms, services and uses which help the Group make digital life easier for its almost 270 million customers worldwide.
During the three years of your PhD programme, you and your managers will work on key internal or cooperative (ANR, European projects, etc.) projects for the Group. The Group's policy on PhD candidates will allow you to develop effective relationships and synergies with public research institutions Institut Mines-Télécom, INRIA, etc.) and to enjoy a significant professional experience which will open doors to a career in public or private research or in the corporate world - and not necessarily in the lab.
