Doctorats scientifiques : y a-t-il un retard français ?

Doctorats scientifiques : y a-t-il un retard français ? | Doctorat et doctorants, PhD and PhDs students | Scoop.it

La question du doctorat est depuis quelques années au cœur des débats qui agitent l’enseignement supérieur français. Pas assez nombreux, pas assez rémunérés pour les uns, trop longs et inutiles pour d’autres, le doctorat n’en reste pas moins le diplôme phare de l’enseignement supérieur partout dans le monde. J’ai demandé aujourd’hui à un grand témoin, François Xavier Martin, qui a été pendant 7 ans vice-président des anciens de l’École polytechnique, de contribuer à ce blog pour nous y livrer son analyse en se focalisant sur les doctorats scientifiques.

PhD Depression (or just the blues?) | Doctorat et doctorants, PhD and PhDs students | Scoop.it

While many people will suffer 'the blues' during the PhD, in some cases the problem is more serious and can lead to or trigger clinical depression. In those cases, all the practical advice in the world won't help and you need to seek medical attention. If you are worried about how you feel, and nothing… (...) - The Thesis Whisperer, May 17 2017

[Italy] Finalmente #ricercaèlavoro! La DIS-COLL per assegnisti e dottorandi con borsa è legge |

[Italy] Finalmente #ricercaèlavoro! La DIS-COLL per assegnisti e dottorandi con borsa è legge | | Doctorat et doctorants, PhD and PhDs students | Scoop.it

Il Senato della Repubblica ha appena approvato, a larga maggioranza, la legge sul lavoro autonomo non imprenditoriale. Con questo voto la DIS-COLL, l'indennità di disoccupazione per i titolari di contratti di collaborazione, diventa finalmente strutturale, e viene definitivamente estesa ad assegnisti di ricerca e dottorandi borsisti. La giornata di oggi segna dunque una grandissima vittoria per tutte le ricercatrici e i ricercatori precari che da anni reclamano il riconoscimento della dignità del proprio lavoro. Il diritto all'indennità di disoccupazione ad assegnisti e dottorandi con borsa il cui contratto termini dopo il 30/06/2017 risponde – seppure parzialmente – alla necessità di protezione sociale per chi lavora in condizioni di precarietà nel settore della ricerca.

Réforme du doctorat : mettre en œuvre le comité de suivi individuel s'avère "compliqué" (réseau des VP recherche en SHS)

La mise en œuvre du comité de suivi individuel du doctorant, prévu par l’arrêté du 27 mai 2016, s’avère compliquée dans les établissements, à en croire les vice-présidents des six universités SHS qui se sont réunis le 3 mai 2017 à Bordeaux pour échanger sur la réforme du doctorat et sur la question de l’open access. Les responsables de Bordeaux Montaigne, Lyon-II Lumières, Lyon-III Jean-Moulin, Montpellier-III Paul-Valéry, Rennes-II et Toulouse Jean-Jaurès jugent "peu claires" les missions de ce comité. Pour les uns, comme Rennes-II, cette instance a essentiellement un rôle de veille sur le plan déontologique, afin d’éviter tout problème de harcèlement ; pour les autres, le comité doit aussi valider la progression du travail du doctorant. La même diversité d’approches vaut pour l’offre de formation aux doctorants : tantôt à la carte, tantôt sous forme de parcours avec crédits à valider.  (...) - AEF, par Sabine Andrieu, 12/05/2017

Should you join a dissertation support group?

Should you join a dissertation support group? | Doctorat et doctorants, PhD and PhDs students | Scoop.it

In the seemingly endless struggles with your dissertation, you may think about joining a dissertation support group. Experts in dissertation shepherding often advocate a group. It be excellent for “solace, support and motivation” (Axelrod & Windell, 2012, p. 101) and sharing of information and writing techniques (Grant & Tomal, 2013; Joyner, Rouse, & Glatthorn, 2012; Rockinson-Szapkiw & Spaulding, 2014). The group can also give you much consolation and camaraderie, a welcome environment in which everyone speaks the dissertationese dialect, and a relieving spot for empathetic grousing. When in the group you report on your work and progress, you have to describe it. Your description enables you to hone what you’re writing about and clarify it for yourself and others. In the group too, you learn from members, hear their critiques and (hopefully) accept them gracefully, exchange much information about work habits and university procedures, and often gain a cheering section.

Reconnaissance du doctorat : "On ne peut pas accepter que la loi ne soit pas respectée" (Jean-Yves Le Déaut)

Reconnaissance du doctorat : "On ne peut pas accepter que la loi ne soit pas respectée" (Jean-Yves Le Déaut) | Doctorat et doctorants, PhD and PhDs students | Scoop.it


La situation de la reconnaissance du doctorat en France est "insupportable", juge le député socialiste Jean-Yves Le Déaut, lors de la présentation du rapport de l’Opecst sur la stratégie nationale de recherche, le 23 février 2017. Depuis la loi de 2013 sur l’enseignement supérieur et la recherche, aucune convention collective de branche n’a intégré le doctorat. Et dans la fonction publique, malgré quelques ouvertures, le député souligne surtout les "manœuvres de retardement", voire les "fins de non-recevoir". "On ne peut pas accepter, dans un pays démocratique, que la loi ne soit pas respectée", déclare-t-il. Le rapport propose donc des mesures plus coercitives : réserver les aides publiques à la R&D (CIR compris) aux seules entreprises dont les branches reconnaissent le doctorat ; conditionner les futurs recrutements des grands corps à la prise en compte du doctorat.

Réflexions sur les études doctorales, une tribune de Dr. Geoffrey Lorre

Réflexions sur les études doctorales, une tribune de Dr. Geoffrey Lorre | Doctorat et doctorants, PhD and PhDs students | Scoop.it
Le ministère a récemment revu les décrets et les arrêtés réglementant les études doctorales. Les avancées de ces nouveaux textes sont importantes et montrent l’intérêt que le ministère porte à l’encadrement des doctorants. Néanmoins, d’autres mesures peuvent être mises en place pour garantir un bon déroulement du processus de thèse. Le doctorat est en effet un « long tunnel » qu’il est nécessaire d’éclairer au mieux. Le document que nous proposons ici est écrit dans le but d’expliciter les difficultés d’un doctorat et de proposer des processus de formation et d’organisation qui permettraient de les limiter.
