Training

Note: We welcome inquiries about practical training ("stages"), PhD and post-doc opportunities. Do not hesitate to contact one of the Principal Investigators.

 

The vision team is heavily involved in the Master de Sciences Cognitives (Cogmaster) of ENS/EHESS/P5. We are members of both the scientific committee and the pedagogic committee. One of us is also the co-ordinator of the Psychology strand of this master (the largest of the 5 strands), and we co-ordinate a unit within this master (CA3a). We have trained 9 PhD students and 12 masters in the last five years. We take part in several summer schools, either by organising them (annual CNRS Thematic School in Colour; Summer School on Consciousness and Action) or lecturing therein (e.g. FENS-IBRO European Neuroscience School Programme). One of us has also been part of the steering committee of his current Graduate School (ED261). We were part of an EC-funded ITN (CODDE) and are now involved in a new one (PRISM). Finally, in collaboration with the RISC, we are developing an Internet platform for on-line experiments (partnership with the ENS Cogmaster and with researchers).

The audition team members are all actively involved in teaching and scientific training. We all teach in the Master de Sciences Cognitives (Cogmaster) of ENS/EHESS/P5, for which we coordinate a teaching unit on auditory perception. We also coordinate teaching units in other universities (ATIAM, P6; Le Mans) or on different topics (computational neuroscience, ENS), to diversify the profile of students engaged in our research topics. Thus, we offer training opportunities (Master, PhD, engineering degrees) for a range of fields covering psychophysics, computational neuroscience, modelling, animal behaviour, neurophysiology. As one of the founding members of the training network Erasmus Mundus (EU / Northern America) on Auditory Cognitive Neuroscience, we expect further international exchanges with Canada and the US.
