Edinburgh Neuroscience is delighted to host a new Wellcome Trust funded 4 year PhD programme in Translational Neuroscience: Lifecourse influences on human brain health.

This prestigious, and innovative, research and ‘Training to Translate’ programme will address a current global need by focussing on the advancement of knowledge, expertise and skills in clinical translation and will draw on unique Edinburgh research strengths in diseases across the life-course to achieve this goal.

The programme will train non-clinical students to combine cutting-edge experimental technology (e.g. cellular, regenerative, computational, genetic, animal models) and analytical tools, with comprehensive knowledge of the clinical brain research environment. By doing so, it will equip students with the distinct skills required to bridge the knowledge gap between the design, execution and interpretation of cellular/animal experiments and the challenges of experimental medicine.

Application deadline: 7th December 2015

Interviews will take place on 13th January 2016.
