MRC Doctoral Training Grant Studentships
Cambridge, UK

Scholarship / Financial aid: an annual stipend of £13,590

Date: 3 years

Deadline: 16th February 2012

Open to: UK researchers from both pre-clinical and clinical background

Announcement follows

Expressions of interest are invited for three MRC Doctoral Training Grant Studentships (3 years each) at the Behavioural & Clinical Neuroscience Institute (BCNI; Director Prof. TW Robbins and Clinical Director: Prof ET Bullmore). These MRC studentships cover university and college fees, an annual stipend at current MRC rates (£13,590 for UK citizens), and a contribution towards research expenses and some incidental costs. The start date for these studentships is 1st October 2012.

The BCNI (jointly funded by the U.K. Medical Research Council and the Wellcome Trust) is the leading translational interface at Cambridge University in the domain of neuropsychiatry. The BCNI is an interdisciplinary group of neuroscientists in the University of Cambridge working together to understand the behavioural, cognitive and neurobiological basis of psychiatric and neurological disorders with a view to translate basic research into clinically relevant deliverables, including especially pharmacological treatment. The BCNI has strong themes of neuroimaging research, including cellular and systems imaging (with MR, PET and EEG) and of neuropsychopharmacology. The main aim is to optimise translational neuroscience studies across species with a focus on mental health, in particular impulsive/compulsive disorders, including drug addiction, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD); disorders at the cognitive-emotional interface such as psychosis, depression and anxiety and cognitive disorders, such as in dementia and schizophrenia.

The BCNI comprises approximately 200 research members led by 20-30 senior academic affiliates spread across basic departments (Experimental Psychology and Physiology, Development and Neuroscience) and the Clinical School (Psychiatry, Clinical Neurosciences and the Wolfson Brain Imaging Centre).

Please contact the BCNI Research administrator, Dr Mercedes Arroyo, for a list of profiles and contact details of members of the BCNI pleased to consider applications from prospective PhD students.
