 Hi Hamid,

You hold a master’s degree and you’d like to do a PhD.  The first step would be to contact the Centre d’Etudes Doctorales (or Center for PhD Studies) of the university you intend to join.  There you’ll find a list of research axes proposed by university professors.  Pick one and register your name as a PhD candidate.
