Applications are now being accepted for two MRC-funded MSc studentships in Cognitive Neuroscience with specialisation in biomedical imaging in the Department of Psychology at the University of York, UK.
The University of York houses one of the UK’s premier neuroimaging centres and is pioneering several new brain imaging and analysis techniques including hyperpolarized MRI/fMRI, source-imaged steady state EEG and MEG and measures of cortical connectivity.
The MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience is a prestigious course aiming at training students in preparation for academic research at PhD level. Studentship holders will follow the course syllabus and will receive specific research training on the biomedical imaging techniques being developed at York. Researchers involved in these projects include Professors Gary Green, Simon Duckett, Tony Morland, Alex Wade and Dr. Heidi Baseler.Â
The studentships will cover tuition fees plus annual living expenses in accordance with standard MRC rates.
Applicants must have a first or upper-second class degree in a physical or biological science. Students with a background in computer science, physics, chemistry, engineering and mathematics are encouraged to apply. Applications will be judged solely on academic merit but must satisfy MRC eligibility criteria.
Deadline for applications
Applications must be received by 31 May 2013.
How to apply
