We are excited to announce that the MRC Brain Network Dynamics Unit has five fully-funded MRC studentships available from October 2020 to support Ph.D. (D.Phil.) projects as part of the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences.

The five D.Phil. projects on offer are:

1. Closed-loop modulation of neuronal plasticity.  (Supervisors: Dr Andrew Sharott and Dr Hayriye Cagnan)

2. Neural dynamics of drug-paired memory in the mouse brain.  (Supervisor: Dr David Dupret)

3. Instrumentation and algorithms for closed-loop Deep Brain Stimulation.  (Supervisors: Professor Tim Denison and Dr Huiling Tan)

4. Studying circuit dynamics to understand disease mechanisms and their therapy.  (Supervisor: Dr Huiling Tan)

5. Cell and circuit function in the basal ganglia in health and disease.  (Supervisor: Professor Peter Magill)

Candidates can apply for more than one D.Phil. project. See weblinks above for more details on projects and how to apply.

The closing date for applications for all projects is 12.00 midday UK time on Friday 10th January 2020.

Short-listed applicants will be interviewed on 29th and 30th January 2020.
