You wish to integrate the masters of neuroscience?

Internship terms and conditions

Medical students (including those taking a break after the 3rd year) are subject to the same rules as other students in second year (M2). For more information, contact the master’s department or check our internship FAQ (in French).

Doctoral scholarships

Every year, the PhD Program in neuroscience at Aix-Marseille University (AMU) offers to finance one year of science thesis for interns or young doctors. This call for applications is addressed to interns or young doctors who wish to spend a year of research in the framework of a neuroscience thesis in an AMU laboratory. The fellowships are fully funded by the AMU Academy of Excellence (A*MIDEX) and aim to foster links between doctors and researchers, to encourage the involvement of doctors in experimental research and to promote a brand new PhD-for-MD programme.

The selection process takes place in 3 stages:

  • a call for projects for research teams from Aix-Marseille University laboratories,
  • a call for applications from interns or young doctors,
  • interviewing shortlisted candidates.
