PhD Scholarship applications are now open
Brain Research New Zealand aims to recruit world class young scientists and physician-scientists who wish to extend their knowledge and experience in research related to the ageing-brain and ageing-related neurological disorders, in order to pursue a successful career in neuroscience and/or medicine.
We are now offering up to 9 fully funded PhD scholarships to be taken up in 2016. The PhD scholarships are intended for students possessing an outstanding academic record or very good Honours or Master's degree (or qualified equivalent) to undertake highly innovative neuroscience research projects that relate to the ageing brain.
The selection process will include the following steps:
- Applicants will complete the application form and send it to BRNZ, along with a letter of support from their proposed supervisor and a copy of their most recent academic transcript.
- The selection committee will shortlist the top-ranked students for recommendation to the BRNZ Directorate.
- The Directorate will meet to review the top-ranked applications. The Co-Directors will announce the final decision in late December and the successful candidates will start their PhD studies in early 2016.
