INED PhD Students

  • INED, together with the IRD (Institut de Recherche pour le Développement) and the Universities of Bordeaux IV, Paris I and Paris X, belongs to a network of institutions that train PhD students. Fifteen INED researchers teach in Masters of Demography programmes and related disciplines, and most of the ten French professors with a chair in demography are INED “associated researchers.”
  • Universities and PhD schools thus naturally rely on the Institute to host their PhD students in demography. Every year, INED hosts nearly 40 PhD students enrolled to do a thesis in demography, sociology, anthropology, history, geography, epidemiology, biomathematics and other disciplines whose thesis topic fits into the Institute’s lines of research.
