Why join the CORTEX project?
CORTEX is a rare and mutlidisciplinary project to understand the most powerful yet complex tool that has ever been designed, the Brain. Furthermore CORTEX gathers top quality teams, that have access to state of the art equipment and that have strong collaborations with internationally renowned labs (see team profiles). A special budget has been allocated to each team to encourage the students to participate in Summer Schools and in renowned international conferences or seminars. The close proximity with hospitals ensures very special links and collaborations with patients which is a strong asset for the Lyon scientific community. This project is also located at the heart of one of Europe's leading neuroscience communities in the historical and dynamic city of Lyon.
We have Master and PhD GRANTS to offer. To know more about this, please send an email to the project manager.
In order to foster the international profile of the CORTEX students, we offer mobility grants for PhD and Master students who wishes to have a French experience in our labs. For further details, please contact the project manager.
