Every year, more than 50 students are chosen by our institute to complete their doctoral thesis or to fill a post-doctoral research position. IRESNE therefore has 150 doctoral and post-doctoral students onsite at all times.

The thesis subjects are tailored to meet the scientific and technical challenges with which the nuclear energy sector is faced. The international repute of our researchers, the scientific quality of research conducted at the CEA, together with the highly specific digital and experimental platforms equipping the laboratories at IRESNE, provide future PhD students with a top-rate research environment conducive to the success of their theses.​​​
