Doctoral Program of the School of Criminal Justice (Ecole des sciences criminelles - ESC)
The School of Criminal Justice doctoral program brings together PhD students in forensic science and in criminology both from the ESC but also from any university delivering a PhD in forensic science or criminology. The aim of the program is to allow PhD students to develop their network and to gain important skills for conducting a PhD research. This objective is achieved by offering specialised workshops and participating in a Summer School.
The workshops will help develop generic cross-disciplinary skills. The Summer school is a unique opportunity to meet international PhD students in criminology and forensic science as well as international scholars. During this event, all students will present a part of their thesis and presentations in forensic science and criminology will be given by international speakers.
This year, the workshops will take place on the 13th of September and the 17th of October 2013 at the University of Lausanne. They are reserved for the ESC PhD students. The aim of these workshops is to develop your oral presentation skills in English and your scientific writing skills. Also you will be introduced to the process of reviewing scientific papers submitted in English to peer-reviewed journal. The activities will be offered to you in collaboration with the Centre de langues of the University of Lausanne, Dr. Tanja Wranik (www.psyinfo.ch) and Prof. Pierre Margot.
