Build your career

Professional trainings

In addition to workshops on how to write scientific résumés, the neuroscience master’s program wants to open students to other horizons that research in a public laboratory. We organize meetings with professionals and, for M2 students, a week of training to sensitize them to one of three topics :

  • clinical research
  • science communication
  • business

If you are interested in them, you can complete your education, for example through:

Assess your skills

…e.g. through the TalentToday or DocPro websites.

Finding a job in public research is far from easy. This is why our master’s program does not only prepare you to a Ph.D. in neuroscience and a career in academia. During your courses, pratical work or lab trainings, you acquire scientific and technical knowledge but you also learn to work in teams, to conduct a scientific watch, to prepare reports, to present results orally, sometimes in English… : learn how to highlight these skills!

To help you, the master’s program organizes workshops on writing scientific résumés and cover letters (French/English).
