This is part of a competition studentship with project 2020-CCBS-05 (see https://www.edinburghneuroscience.ed.ac.uk/project/dementia-including-alzheimers-disease-neurodegeneration/investigation-mechanisms). The best applicant will be offered the studentship, regardless of which project they wish to do. You can apply to both projects, but this will not offer any advantage.
The studentship includes a 3 year UKRI-level stipend, UK/EU level tuition fees, and an allowance for consumables and travel. The project would suit applicants with a background in basic neuroscience, developmental biology and molecular biology.
