Call for applications for the SACRe/PSL 2024 doctoral programme, open from 05 April 2024 to Monday 13 May 2024 at 4pm (Paris time, UTC +1)


SACRe / PSL doctoral training at the Beaux-Arts de Paris

The aim of the doctoral programme is to support artists in drawing up and developing a research project based on their artistic practice. The aim of the course is to contribute to the development of the artists' work, by enabling them to explore one or more specific aspects of it in greater depth or to enrich it by studying a range of content on related subjects.

Doctoral research through SACRe

The doctoral programme is attached to the transdisciplinary doctoral school in Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (ED540) and to the Sciences, Arts, Creation and Research Laboratory (SACRe). SACRe is a research unit created through the collaboration of six institutions that are component or partner members of Université PSL: the École normale supérieure (ENS), the École nationale supérieure des Arts décoratifs (ENSAD), the École nationale supérieure de l'image et du son (Fémis), the Conservatoire national supérieur de musique et de danse de Paris (CNSMDP) and the Conservatoire national supérieur d'art dramatique (CNSAD).

The aim of SACRe is to encourage the emergence of original projects that combine creation and research. This interdisciplinary doctoral programme involves the production of works, objects or devices closely associated with a reflective approach based on a variety of theoretical and scientific fields.


The ED540 training plan to which doctoral students commit includes: specific training given at the Beaux-Arts de Paris, a joint monthly seminar designed to explore the relationship between creation and research for all doctoral students admitted to the SACRe programme, and additional cross-disciplinary training linked to the development of professional skills.
