Description de la soumission d'un avis
Following the two calls for applications launched at the beginning of 2020, NeuroSchool’s PhD program has awarded:
- Three 3-year PhD scholarships to high-level students who have obtained a master’s degree in a foreign university.
- Two PhD scholarships for international co-supervised PhD fellowships between AMU and a foreign university.
In response to these calls, the PhD program received 48 eligible applications from students who applied for one of the 16 projects (9 international and 7 co-tutoring) submitted by all Marseille laboratories. Eleven candidates were pre-selected on the basis of their applications and according to the ranking made by the project leaders.
Auditions were held on Friday, June 5 before a jury including a representative from each NeuroMarseille laboratory. The following results were obtained unanimously.
