The Research in Psychoanalysis and Psychopathology doctoral school (ED 450) is integrated into the Psychoanalytic Studies department. The research concerns all contemporary forms of subjectivity. They articulate psychoanalysis with the university, approaching psychoanalytic discourse with the critical approach of university knowledge. Our doctoral school maintains a privileged network of international collaborations with Latin America, China and the Mediterranean basin for jointly supervised theses and post-docs.

Our doctoral school is unique both nationally and internationally!
