About the Project
We will undertake newborn MRI scanning including structural, diffusion tensor and functional imaging. Children will be assessed at two years of age for cognitive, language, motor and executive function. We will determine the relationships between early MRI findings and later developmental problems, and the effects of the trial interventions on these.
What we are looking for in a successful applicant
We are looking for candidates with a degree in a health, psychology or education-related discipline and some experience with MRI analysis.

There are no international fees for PhD students: as long as you live in New Zealand during your period of enrolment, and even if you initially start your PhD from overseas, you will pay the same as New Zealanders.
