In the lab
From the school-year 2021-2022 UGA opens a Graduate School GS@UGA with 15 thematic programs, 2 of which are associated to the master Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies.

Formation through research in the master N2

The master program N2   builds on the strength of the Grenoble research community to provide a strong formation through research.  A significant portion of the second year courses are taught by researchers of the partner institutes. The standard curriculum contains more than 7 months of full time research internships:

In addition, the Research Intensive Training offers students the possibility of extending these internship with a continuous immersion in their labs in parallel to their courses, thanks to elective modules. Following this training, students can prepare actively a continuation in PhD.

Graduate School GS@UGA

Starting in 2021-2022 the Graduate School GS@UGA brings together the university and its partner research institutes (CEA, CNRS, CHU, European Facilities) to achieve a high level of formation through and for research, combining the Master and PhD level. GS@UGA is supported by the French National Research Agency (ANR-20-SFRI-0007) under the "Investissements d'avenir" programme.

The master Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies is associated to 2 thematic programs of GS@UGA:

These programs are committed to ensure a large contribution of the research community to the academic formation, providing an integrated PhD-track curriculum. More than 60 PhD positions are offered each year in the domains of nanosciences and nanotechnologies in the Grenoble area.

Finding a research internship

In order to find a research internship, student can
- consult the webpage of their track dedicated to internships
- consult the "student corner" webpage of labs and research institutes of the Grenoble area
- ask advice to their track coordinator.

According to the french law, internships have to be covered by an Internship Agreement. During the internship the research institute pays to the student a stipend of 530€/month, for a maximum duration of 6 months in a given school year.
