The successful candidate will have access to a wide range of state-of-the-art research facilities and resources, including 3T and 7T MRI scanners, EEG/MEG and behavioural testing labs, and high-performance computing cluster.
Full awards (fees plus maintenance stipend) are open to UK/EU Nationals and Non-EU nationals.
As only one studentship is available and a very high standard of applications is typically received, the successful applicant is likely to have a very good first degree (a First or Upper Second class BSc Honours or equivalent) and/or be distinguished by having relevant research experience in psychology, biology, neuroscience, mathematics, or engineering/computer science.
Students are expected to have good quantitative skills, including knowledge of a scripting language such as R, MATLAB, or python, high scores in statistics courses, and a demonstrated interest in quantitative questions.
