We would like to invite you to apply to a ground-breaking new PhD Programme providing interdisciplinary 4-year doctoral training in neuro-immune interactions in a supportive and diverse environment.
Cross-talk between the nervous and immune systems is critical for survival, and disrupted neuro-immune communication is observed in many debilitating conditions, including chronic inflammatory, neurodegenerative and psychiatric diseases.
To better understand these conditions, we urgently need a new generation of researchers that are trained to work across fields, using state-of-the-art technologies, cutting-edge science and supervision methods. In line with Wellcome’s new Research Culture (#ReimagineResarch), we are committed to provide scientific excellence in a positive and inclusive working environment. Our programme will develop and share practices that bring science and research culture together, placing both firmly at the heart of our training strategy and your research journey.
Two pathways are available through this course, depending on your background, preference and consultation with the programme directors:
On either pathway, you will attend 2 bespoke neuro-immune courses, 6 compulsory core research skills and ethics workshops, a weekly journal club, and individualised research and skills training to enhance either your “neuro” or “immune” knowledge, as required.
Home and EU students are fully eligible, and a limited number of places will also be available for overseas students. Medically qualified applicants are not eligible to apply.
For further information, please consult our programme webpages.
After checking that you meet the eligibility criteria, please follow the directions available to download from the APPLY NOW link.
Application deadline: 23:59 on 4 December 2019.
