Applications are now open for Newcastle University's Institute of Neuroscience four-year MRes+PhD programme supported by the Wellcome Trust.
Our programme is tailored specifically for students with outstanding backgrounds in physical sciences, engineering, mathematics or computing. Students will be trained for productive careers in neuroscience through a combination of intensive taught coursework and laboratory rotations in the first year, during which hands-on experience with experimental data collection will be the key aspect, followed by PhD research projects in the final three years, which will enable students to apply their previously acquired quantitative, technical and scientific skills to challenging questions in neuroscience.
Please note the deadline for applications has been extended to the 10th of February. The provisional date for interviews is the 15th of March.
