About

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. The Neuroscience program is offered by the University of Lausanne.

Overview

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. 

Goals and Objectives

The Lemanic Neuroscience Doctoral School (LNDS) aims at providing students with broad background knowledge in neuroscience, irrespective of their thesis topic. That is, it offers courses and training events ranging from cellular and molecular to cognitive, clinical and computational neurosciences.

After completing the Neuroscience program at the University of Lausanne, the PhD candidate will have demonstrated that he/she is able to:

  • independently plan and execute an original research project.
  • use and apply the acquired knowledge and technologies to design a novel scientific study in order to answer preclinical or clinical questions.
  • effectively communicate, written and orally, about his/her research with the scientific community and the general public.
  • integrate his/her research topic with other domains of neuroscience, make connections between the fundamental and cognitive/clinical neurosciences, and acknowledge the benefit of transdisciplinary interactions for scientific advancement and innovation.
  • critically discuss their own as well as others’ research.
  • act and react promptly in scientific discussions and contribute to resolving problems in scientific projects.
  • efficiently organize his/her own as well as group-wide projects, and recognize a possible necessity of additional resources.
  • engage into scientific discussions in English.
  • write and successfully defend a doctoral thesis.
