Description de la soumission d'un avis
An Erasmus+ agreement signed in 2015 allows students of L3 neuroscience and AMU’s Master of neurosciences to do an internship in a research laboratory in Helsinki, Finland, or in Oldenburg, near Bremen, Germany. They can also take courses there.
Conversely, we welcome students from the University of Helsinki and the University of Oldenburg to do internships in Marseille laboratories affiliated to the Master of Neurosciences. Some of them have even been able to participate in Problem-Based Learning (PBL) modules, which can be given in English.
These exchanges strengthen international collaborations between research laboratories, as does the participation of Finnish researchers in M2 colloquia.
University of Helsinki
A very lively port metropolis
A renowned university (top 100)
A Neuroscience Centre with high-performance technical platforms (flow cytometry, in vivo microscopy, behavioural analysis of mice, cell culture, fish animal facilities, etc.).
All master courses taught in English
Host teams in Helsinki
Several Finnish researchers have in the past offered to host trainees:
- Eero Castren, professor at the Neuroscience Center (Induction of neuronal plasticity the adult brain: mechanisms and applications)
- Tomi Taira, Professor in the Department of Veterinary Biosciences/ Physiology (Activity-dependent development and plasticity in the hippocampus)
- Sari Lauri, team leader(Signaling mechanisms guiding functional maturation of glutamatergic synapses)
- Iiris Hovatta, Neurogenetics Laboratory, which studies the neurobiological and genetic basis of anxiety disorders.
- Mart Saarma, which works on the molecular and cellular mechanisms of programmed death in neurons controlled by neurotrophic factors.
You can also consult the Neuroscience Center website for a longer list of teams.
Contact them if you are interested in participating in their research project.

**Only open to trainees who have experience in EEG.
The Université de Montréal
As long-time partners, Aix-Marseille University and the Université de Montréal are seeking to strengthen their ties in the field of neuroscience.
Our M2 students can complete a research internship in the laboratories of researchers affiliated with the UdeM Neurosciences Department, or take courses for the Master’s degree in neuroscience.
Conversely, we are very happy to welcome Montreal students (in the Master’s courses or in research teams affiliated with the Master’s in Neuroscience), as well as Montreal teacher-researchers, for example as speakers in the M2 colloquia.
2023 update : this partnership is currently suspended while the agreement is being renewed
Université de Montréal
A cosmopolitan metropolis
A world-renowned university
A major centre of neuroscience
Cutting-edge research in all areas of neuroscience
Host teams in Montreal
Several researchers have already offered internships in Montreal:
- Florin Amzica
- Christian Casanova
- Jean-François Bouchard
- Julien Cohen-Adad
- Elaine Chapman
- Graziela Di Cristo
- Baudoin Forgeot d’Arc
- Yves Joanette
- Arlette Kolta
- Richard Robitaille
- Louis-Eric Trudeau
- Christine Vande Velde
Don’t limit yourself to this list, which is still under development. However, your supervisor must be affiliated with the Department of Neurosciences, whose researchers are listed here (here in pdf format).
Note that our scholarships are available for exchanges to Montreal in M2 only.
Please note that the UdeM must validate the applications very early on, so we call for applications at the end of M1 (usually around June) for a departure to M2.
CIVIS European University
Eight European universities have joined forces to build a European University Alliance called “CIVIS“.
A network creating links across Europe and beyond
This alliance created under the European University Statute meets the criteria of the European Commission’s “Erasmus +” call and brings together some 384,000 students and 55,000 staff members.
Aix-Marseille University (France)
National and Capodistrian University of Athens (Greece)
Université Libre de Bruxelles (Belgium)
University of Bucharest (Romania)
Autonomous University of Madrid (Spain)
La Sapienza University of Rome (Italy)
Stockholm University (Sweden)
Eberhard Karls University of Tübingen (Germany)
University of Glasgow (Scotland)
We do not yet have the detailed list of neuroscience teams for all the members of the European University CIVIS. If you are interested in a laboratory, please contact it and specify that you are applying for NeuroSchool outgoing mobility grants.
Host teams in Tübingen
The university officials in Tübingen are enthusiastic about welcoming our students:
- Prof. Dr. Cornelius Schwarz, member of Centre for Integrative Neuroscience (CIN)
- Prof. Dr. Horst Herbert, director and coordinator of the Graduate Training Center in Neuroscience
Here is the list of laboratories related to neuroscience at the University of Tübingen: Tübingen – laboratories
The first student from Marseille went to Tübingen in 2019 for an internship with Birgit Derntl’s team.
For your part, do not hesitate to contact the laboratories to find out about their research and availability.
Host teams in Brussels
As our partnership is brand new, so far, only Dr Philippe Peigneux’ team has welcomed one of our trainees. Visit the website of the Institut de Neurosciences de l’ULB to discover other research teams.
