Admission to the LNDS

If you are interested in enrolling in the LN Doctoral School, please follow these steps:

  1. Find a laboratory in the Lemanic area (except for the EPFL*) that offers you a research project and can guarantee your salary during the duration of your PhD (3 to 5 years).
  2. Define a thesis project with your thesis director.
  3. Register as a doctoral student at the university where your project will take place.
  4. The Scientific Committee of the Doctoral School will review your application and let you know if you have been accepted into the program.

(*) Students working in laboratories at the EPFL must enroll at the EPFL Doctoral School in Neuroscience (EPFL-EDNE School).

More details about registering at each university are indicated below. Please make sure when registering with the faculty of your choice that your thesis director is indeed eligible as thesis director within that particular faculty! ***

*** Please see below the document "Thesis attestation" provided by the UNIGE-FPSE that needs to be submitted during the application process by prospective FPSE students. Might be helpful as model for other faculties as well, but please change the faculty header ...
