Two PhD Studentships available

Two fully funded PhD studentships are available to both home and overseas candidates as a result of the recent appointment of Dr John Terry to a Prize Readership within the department and successful candidates will be trained in a multidisciplinary neuroscience environment.

Research will involve the development of mathematical and computational technologies that can be directly applied to problems in experimental and clinical neuroscience. A number of different projects are available, with the specific project being chosen by the successful applicant following a period of background reading and preliminary research. In September 2010, the new £12.8M Sheffield Institute for TRAnslational Neuroscience (SITRAN) will open and candidates will have the opportunity to interact directly with clinical and experimental neuroscientists.

Further details with example project titles is available for download.

Informal enquiries are welcome and potential candidates are encouraged to discuss the positions by contacting John Terry by email:
