The Lemanic Neuroscience Doctoral School (LNDS) organizes student training both in theoretical and experimental aspects of neuroscience. Research projects take place at affiliated laboratories in Geneva and Lausanne. Students receive their training through comprehensive coursework within the LN Program and by attending seminars, journal clubs and workshops. They are also encouraged, and often sponsored, to present their research at national and international neuroscience conferences. Facilitating interaction between students and senior researchers helps the students build a network for future collaboration and employment. Our graduates have successful careers in a variety of areas including academia, teaching, research foundations, industry and scientific editing.
LN students are welcome to play an active role in the workings of the program and other outreach events. Every year LN students get involved in organizing the LN Annual Meeting and the Brain Awareness Week. At the last FENS meeting (Geneva, July 12-16 2008), they organized and hosted the successful Jump-the-FENS´08 evenings for their European and world-wide colleagues. In the last three years many students have also supervised international PhD students and postdocs on lab projects at the PENS Imaging Training Center.
