Orange Labs

At Orange, there is a real research tradition: we produce more than one patent a day – and doctoral students are not the last to produce them, quite the contrary! [...]

In a doctorate, you can benefit from the research ecosystem that Orange Labs offers you and present your results to group stakeholders at the doctoral students' day, every year.

Orange Labs

Very often, training through research, a doctorate – and this was my case in particular – prepares you to take on more general management roles in the company. [...]

During your doctorate at Orange, you will build links with the world of public research (Institut Mines-Télécom, INRIA, etc.) which opens up privileged career prospects both in the field of Research (public or private) as well as in companies, and not only in research laboratories.

Doctoral student

My thesis related to the use of mobile telephony data to understand the mobility and organisation of the urban space. These three years of thesis enabled me to discover the word of research in companies, and also opened me up to other disciplines represented by the different Orange Labs researchers.
