M2 FCN - Internships

Fundamental and Clinical Neurosciences

The second semester of the M2 FCN is fully dedicated to an internship in a research laboratory.
Below is a list of internship proposals from some Neuroscience teams in and outside Lyon. This list is updated as proposals are received.
Potential M2 FCN students are encouraged to directly contact other teams from the Labs in Lyon affiliated with the Master (list here), as well as to consider internships outside of Lyon or abroad. The latter will be endorsed if the scientific project and the host laboratory meet the admission committee’s criteria.

Students are also encouraged to perform internship abroad and to apply to various fellowships for financial support of international mobility (Neurograduate school, UFR Biosciences, Région Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, etc…).
