Under the auspices of the Professor John Scott fellowship a fully funded 4 year PhD studentship has become available to undertake a collaborative PhD project in the laboratories of Professor Mark Cunningham (Discipline of Physiology, School of Medicine) and Professor Colm Cunningham (School of Biochemistry & Immunology) at Trinity College Dublin.
The PhD project available is entitled, “Decoding neuroinflammatory effects on neuronal circuits at the interface of dementia and delirium”. The project will combine animal models of disease, cell isolation protocols, acute illness protocols and will require a particular focus on electrophysiological approaches to better understand the impact of neuroinflammation on neuronal dynamics.
The ideal candidate will have a primary degree (minimum 2:1 or equivalent) in biomedical sciences, neurosciences, immunology or a related science. The successful candidate must satisfy the entrance requirements for Trinity College Dublin. We are looking to recruit a highly motivated and enthusiastic person who will work on this exciting interdisciplinary project.
This Ph.D. programme will commence in September 2019.
How to Apply: Please send a cover letter/letter of motivation and up to date Curriculum Vitae to Mark Cunningham ([email protected]; 353-1-8968569)
