Dear colleagues,

The Sainsbury Wellcome Centre <http://www.ucl.ac.uk/swc/about> for Neural
Circuits and Behaviour (SWC) is a new institute funded by the Gatsby
Charitable Foundation and the Wellcome Trust. Located within University
College London, the SWC combines advanced molecular, optical, physiology
and behaviour approaches to investigate how brain circuits create neural
representations and guide behaviour.

We are excited to announce a new programme for exceptional PhD candidates.
SWC studentships are open to UK and international applicants and cover
research expenses, full payment of tuition fees and provide a competitive
tax-free stipend in line with the Wellcome Trust stipend scale.

SWC PhD students will receive intensive training in experimental
techniques, and in conjunction with the Gatsby Computational Neuroscience
Unit (co-located with SWC), the programme will provide a comprehensive
introduction to theoretical and systems neuroscience.

Applicants should have a strong scientific and analytical background, a
keen interest in neuroscience, and a relevant first degree. *Application
deadline is January 31st, 2016*

Enquires should be sent to swc-admissions at ucl.ac.uk

Full details of our programme, and how to apply, are available here:
