Cardiff University PhD Studentship in Integrative Neuroscience
Our 4 year Programme provides a broader and more in-depth practical and theoretical grounding in neuroscience than conventional 3 year programmes.
Early in Year 1 you will receive formal lectures in research design, statistics, lab safety, animal welfare and ethical standards, and attend a series of specialized lecture courses in behavioural, cellular, molecular, genetic and system neuroscience. In the second part of Year 1, you will experience three 11-week laboratory rotations in internationally renowned labs. During the lab rotations, you will carry out research, gain knowledge of the questions addressed by the lab, and acquire direct experience of the relevant techniques. Lab rotations help you to reach an informed choice of the neuroscience area and supervisor you will choose for your full PhD project during Years 2 to 4. Throughout all the years you and your colleagues will participate in weekly seminars and presentations at journal clubs. The programme is designed to ensure an excellent PhD experience and an outstanding future.
Funded by the Wellcome Trust in 2008 – recently renewed for another 3 years.
Students choose from a selection of projects in their first year from a range of Neuroscience areas.
Start date: October 2016
