Master 2 IMaLiS

IMaLiS curricula of the PSL Master in Life Sciences

M2 coordinator : Denis Thieffry
Secretary : Anne Zalmanski

In the second year of the Master’s degree, students specialize by choosing one of four curricula :
- Systems biology, genomics and bioinformatics (coordinator Denis Thieffry)
- Neurosciences (coordinator Mariano Casado)
- Fundamental biology for health (coordinator Alice Lebreton)
- Ecology and evolution (coordinator Régis Ferrière)

The first semester is mainly devoted to courses in one of the aforementioned specializations. Cross-sampling between disciplinary curricula is still possible provided faculty are in agreement.
The second semester is spent completing a 5-month internship with an academic or industry research group, allowing students to further specialize in a specific field.

Who should apply ?

The Master 2 year is open to students with a Master 1 or a four-year Bachelor degree in Science (Life Sciences, Health Sciences, Science and Technology, Earth and Life Sciences, Physics, Chemistry, Math, etc.) or Engineering and including some research experience, and to students from French engineering schools who have received basic education in life Sciences.
This program is also suitable for students who have completed the first three years of medical/pharmaceutical studies, have acquired a Master 1 degree equivalence and would like additional training in science at a stage where they have not yet chosen their area of specialization.

Please note that for the 2016-2017 Academic Year tuition fees amounted to 261 €. Students must also matriculate with the French National Health Service (at a cost of 215€).

Competitive Q-Life/IMaLiS scholarships (10,000 €/year) are available for :
- international students
- students holding a French Master year 2 degree or equivalent (i.e. engineering school diploma) in Mathematics, Computer Science, Engineering, Physics, Chemistry or Geosciences who have demonstrated interest in Life Sciences.
