EPFL Virtual Tour

The EPFL PhD Program in Neuroscience (EDNE) provides its students with extensive training in various fields of neurosciences, ranging from molecular, cellular, circuit, computational, cognitive and behavioral neurosciences to neuroprosthetics and neuroengineering.

Students matriculate in the highly dynamic and interdisciplinary environment of the EPFL, in the Brain Mind Institute , the Neuro-X Institute, the Blue Brain Project, or in other research groups affiliated to our program.

Furthermore, there is a close cooperation between EDNE and the Neuroscience doctoral programs of the University of Lausanne and the University of Geneva (LN Doctoral School).

The EPFL Doctoral School launched the third call for applications for EPFLglobaLeaders, a new doctoral fellowship programme funding early stage researchers to become leaders in the transition towards sustainable societies. In total, forty-eight doctoral fellows will benefit from a multifaceted training programme, including a secondment in the non-academic sector. The third call for applications is open from 1 March 2022 to 15 May 2022. More information: https://go.epfl.ch/EPFLglobaLeaders
