Coming to Marseille as a master's student

You are a student in one of our partner universities, and you wish to do a mobility at Aix-Marseille University? NeuroSchool offers incoming mobility grants.

Ten NeuroSchool scholarships (up to 1000 €/month) are offered each year to master students of our partner universities for mobility of at least 2 months within Aix-Marseille University.

These mobilities may include internships in laboratories affiliated to the Master of neurosciences at Aix-Marseille University.

Doing a PhD at Aix-Marseille University

Each year, the PhD Program in Neuroscience of Aix-Marseille University (AMU) offers 3 PhD scholarships to students who have validated a Master’s degree outside France. The scholarships are fully funded by NeuroSchool (nEURo*AMU, ANR-17-EURE-0029).

Doing a PhD in co-tutelle with Aix-Marseille University

Since 2020, NeuroSchool launches every year a call for international PhD fellowships in co-supervision or co-direction.

Researchers (with HDR) from AMU’s neuroscience community are invited to submit a scientific project in collaboration with an identified foreign partner who will act as a thesis co-tutor. Any international partner institution is eligible. However, special attention (and priority in case of equal ranking) will be given to projects involving an established international partner of AMU.

NeuroSchool finances up to a total of 54 months which are divided among several projects. NeuroSchool’s proposed funding can cover up to 50% of the total duration of the PhD (usually between 12 and 24 months).
