Call for proposals

The Biaggi de Blasys award is attributed once a year to the author of the best doctoral thesis in Neuroscience  defended at the Universities of Geneva or Lausanne, or the EPFL in a particular year. Currently, candidates can apply who obtained a PhD in 2015 from the following institutions:

  • the Lemanic Neuroscience Doctoral School (Universities of Lausanne and Geneva)
  • the EPFL-EDNE program (including those from non-BMI labs)
  • the EPFL-EDBB program (only those from BMI labs)

The prize of 5'000 CHF is awarded at the CHUV in Lausanne, on the occasion of the Brain Awareness Week.

Applications from LN and EPFL-EDNE graduates should include:

  • cover letter
  • curriculum vitae
  • list of publications
  • a pdf version of the thesis
  • 2 printed copies of the thesis
  • 1-3 letters of recommendation

Upcoming deadline for candidacy: January 31, 2016

Please send the paper parts of your application to:

Lemanic Neuroscience Doctoral School
Amphipole 316
Unil-Sorge
1015 Lausanne
Switzerland

(and the pdf of your thesis to ulrike.toepel@unil.ch)
