Applications to be an instructor for the workshop Introduction to experimental neuroscience”

in partnership with the Bordeaux Summer Schools & Bordeaux Neurocampus Graduate Program

July 17th to 29th, 2023

As part of the Bordeaux Neurocampus Graduate Program, we are looking for instructors for the workshop “Introduction to Experimental Neuroscience”. With this workshop, we aim to share our passion for neuroscience, to create interdisciplinarity and develop scientific discussions between students and researchers from different levels of expertise.

How does it work?

The objective will be to introduce master or PhD students from various background outside the neuroscientific field to the experimental Neuroscience. We will welcome students from physics, engineering, mathematics, psychology and many others.
Your mission will be to supervise a group of 2 or 3 students during 6 days, in English, to implement a mini project according to your specific technical skills.
Of course, in order to develop your project, you will have the assistance of experienced researchers and university professors as well as the teams of the Bordeaux School of Neuroscience and the Bordeaux Neurocampus Graduate Program. As you will work with students who may not have any previous experience in a wet lab and as the aim of this workshop is for them to directly perform the experiments under your supervision, our suggestion is to keep things easy.

As an example, you can find here the projects of 2022 session. Of course, this is just an example, you will have to build your own project.

Why should you participate?

As instructor of the workshop, you will receive a certificate attesting your role and the competences developed in that context:

– coaching and supervision
– pedagogical engineering
– project management

Please note that we will take care of travel and accommodation costs for instructors out of Bordeaux.

The application deadline is March 1st, 2023.

The Bordeaux Summer Schools are a unique opportunity to interact and learn from a diverse range of cultures, both in and out of lectures! Since 2012, the University of Bordeaux organizes summer schools that offer a range of high-quality, multidisciplinary international courses for graduate and doctoral students as well as young researchers. The Bordeaux Summer Schools benefit from strong input regarding format and scientific content from the University of Bordeaux Graduate Research School, a central structure that coordinates the doctoral schools and the entire field of doctoral studies. A large majority of the summer schools are organized in collaboration with internationally renowned laboratories and institutes such as the Bordeaux School of Neuroscience.
