Training Program

Semester 1 - STRASBOURG (France) from September to February (1st year)

This semester starts with many classes (re)establishing the fundamentals in neuroscience. Students are rapidly joining technical workshops in order to gain basic expertise in laboratory work. With dedicated tutors, they are expected to be able to elaborate research projects after a careful analysis of the existing literature. The tutored research project training is one of the favorite class of the semester as well as the BASEL lectures in neuroscience. A first laboratory rotation is also planned.

Semester 2 - FREIBURG (Germany) from March to end of July (1st year)

Summer semester is designed to illustrate the diversity of research in neuroscience in the upper rhine river valley with important teaching in computational neuroscience and in cognitive sciences by the Freiburg faculties. During the semester, the second laboratory rotation will be organized.

Semester 3 - STRASBOURG/FREIBURG from September to end of December (2nd year)

In addition to effective writing exercises (Journal Club), advanced lectures will be given to students in order to give them a major in one of the following specialties : Computational Neuroscience (Freiburg), Integrative Neurophysiology (Strasbourg), Neuroimmunology (Strasbourg) and Cognitive Neuroscience (Strasbourg). During this semester, students will also validate their participation in different scientific meetings (NEUREX conferences and seminars, etc), which take place throughout the first 3 semesters.

Semester 4 - from September to end of May (2nd year)

By the 4th semester, students are expected to have demonstrated their ability to develop a coherent research project in line with the chosen specialty in neuroscience. Students may choose any research internship within any neuroscience-related domain, in a research laboratory also chosen by the student without any geographical limitations. The student will deliver written scientific report and defend his/her project in oral session.
