Here is the announcement for an ESR position (3 years of support leading to a PhD degree) at the mathematics department of Université de Paris Sud (Orsay), and to prepare a PhD under the supervision of Guy David.

The proposed research field is “Minimal Surfaces, Analysis, and Geometric Measure Theory”, and the topic would be “Existence results for some Plateau problems”. But the specifics may of course vary, for instance depending on the student’s background and preferences.

Some technical details (more can be found on the site which should also be consulted for other ESR positions in different universities): Financing comes from the Marie Curie ITN network MAnET (Metric Analysis for Emergent Technologies).
