[visionlist] PhD training in Systems Neuroscience at the SWC in London

Dear colleague,

The Sainsbury Wellcome Centre for Neural Circuits and Behaviour (SWC) is a new institute funded by the Gatsby Charitable Foundation and the Wellcome Trust. Located within University College London, the SWC combines advanced molecular, optical, physiology and behaviour approaches to investigate how brain circuits create neural representations and guide behaviour.

We are excited to announce a new call for applications to our 4-year PhD programme. SWC studentships are open to UK and international applicants and cover research expenses, full payment of tuition fees and provide a competitive tax-free stipend in line with the Wellcome Trust stipend scale.

SWC PhD students will receive intensive training in experimental techniques, and in conjunction with the Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Uni

Applicants should have a strong scientific and analytical background, a keen interest in neuroscience, and a relevant first degree. Application deadline is December 4th, 2016

Enquires should be sent to swc-admissions@ucl.ac.uk

Full details of our programme, and how to apply, are available here:
