Dear all,

we currently recruit for a Wellcome Trust 4-year PhD program in Systems
Neuroscience. The program is aimed at students form the physical sciences
(physics, mathematics, engineering, computer science) who are interested in
experimental or theoretical neuroscience. The first year provides an
introduction to neuroscience and to experimental approaches through three lab
rotations. Details of the program are shown below and application details will
be available later this month. The deadline for applications is 11 January. 

Best regards,

Applications are invited for the autumn 2008 intake to the Wellcome Trust
Four-year PhD Programme: ‘Systems Neuroscience: From Networks to Behaviour’. 
The Wellcome Trust’s Four-year PhD Programmes are a flagship scheme aimed at
supporting the most promising students to undertake in-depth postgraduate
research training. The first year combines taught courses with laboratory
rotations to broaden students’ knowledge of the subject area. At the end of the
first year, students will make an informed choice of their three-year PhD
research project. This programme is based at Newcastle University and is aimed
to provide specialised training for physical and computational scientists (e.g.
physics, chemistry, engineering, mathematics, and computer science) wishing to
apply their skills to a research neuroscience career.Applicants should have, or
expect to obtain, a 1st or 2:1 degree, or equivalent.Support includes a stipend
for four years, PhD registration fees at UK/EU student rate, research expenses,
general training funds and some travel costs. 

Potential applicants should contact: neurosciencepg-enquires at ncl.ac.uk
