Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) Scholarship
A PhD stipend through Curtin University under Dr Matthew Albrecht is available for a student interested in conducting research on animal models of psychiatric disorders. Specifically, the project involves behavioural and electrophysiological assessment of developmental models of schizophrenia. The interaction of the model with other developmental, behavioural, pharmacological or therapeutic interventions will also be investigated. While the project's inception is schizophrenia focussed, the model has relevance for a range of psychiatric disorders including autism, ageing disorders, and mood disorders. A range of opportunities exist for the successful applicant, including possible travel to the US to work with collaborators there.
