English translation:doctoral thesis in sciences
Explanation:
Unlike the U.S. academic system, the French system grants doctorates at different levels. The distinction between "doctorat" and "doctorat d'etat" is that the latter is the highest level of the degree, implying that the holder is, or will be, involved in very high-level (usually government-funded) research. There is no direct equivalent in U.S. English; therefore, I'd simply go with "doctoral thesis," or else quote the French and add an explanatory footnote. -- HTH, HC

Great! It sure helps to have somebody who knows these little nuances (or has the right references).
Thanks again.
