New administrative and financial Officer at NeuroMarseille

The NeuroMarseille Institute and the NeuroSchool graduate School work together to provide the best possible environment for the students and researchers representing the neuroscience community. It's actually substantial administrative work to manage! Among other things, mobility missions, students' payment, orders for Problem-Based Learning modules, payment of the suppliers, creation of "cost centers" for the research calls financed by NeuroMarseille, application of the numerous processes sent by central services... Of course, we must also accompany the students in their training, manage the institute's database and spread information between the internal teams and others at Aix-Marseille University! All this requires a thorough knowledge of specific tools. After Laurie Arnaud's departure, NeuroMarseille definitely had to find a new "star"!
