The director of the Doctoral School is RnIlQzMlQTlkJUMzJUE5cmljJTIwQ2hldnk= , professor at ENS.
He is supported by three deputy directors, each representing one of the partner institutions:
- For Sorbonne Université: TWFyaWElMjBDaGFtYXJybw== , professor at SU ;
- For Université Paris Cité: UGhpbGlwcGUlMjBMYWZhcmdl , professor at UP Cité ;
- For the Université Paris-Saclay: ViVDMyVBOXJvbmlxdWUlMjBUZXJyYXM= , research director CNRS, UP-Saclay.
Beyond the general operation of the EDPIF, each board member is also in charge of the relations between the ED and the respective institutions and for monitoring of thesis students enrolled at the institution. The Director and Assistant Directors implement the policy of the ED in terms of recruitment, training, monitoring, and professional integration of PhDs.
To establish this policy, they rely on the Council of the ED.
Each member of the board is assisted by an administrator.

Council of the Doctoral School Reports
The Executive Board of the ED is supported by a Council that assists in all its assigned missions.
The Council plays multiple roles:
- It defines the procedures and methods of the recruitment of doctoral students;
- It can serve as a committee of exception of title or equivalence;
- It reviews the suggested applications for different for proposals;
- It defines the policy for the scientific training and activities of the ED;
- It acts, as needed, in monitoring theses with particular difficulties.
The Council comprises professors and researchers,representatives of the socio-economic world, representatives of the doctoral students, and representatives of the technical and administrative staff.
As of 22th May 2018 the Council is constituted as follows:
