MRC-funded 3.5-years PhD studentship on the connectomics of Alzheimer’s risk.
Project description: Using advanced imaging and novel mathematical approaches, you will identify spatio-temporal brain networks that show altered dynamics in adults with genetic risk for Alzheimer’s disease. This PhD project will provide grounding in network Neuroscience — an evolving field using complex network theories to study the brain across multiple scales and modalities. We encourage candidates from different disciplines (e.g., cognitive/computational neuroscience, psychology, computer science, engineering, mathematics or physics). (How to apply)
We are actively looking for new members to join our research team. Please contact Jiaxiang Zhang with your CV for further information.
We consider applications for PhD studentships on a rolling basis, with a typical starting date in October. Deadlines vary between November and March, depending on funding schemes. We recommend students to get in contact to discuss potential projects before making application.
Visitors and interns
We welcome academic visitors from anywhere in the world to join us on a temporary basis, either for developing new collaborations or, for students, to gain new research skills. Previously, we hosted visitors and students from China, Italy and Spain, and our experience has been hugely positive.
