A Four-Year Wellcome Trust PhD Programme
Director: Professor Andrew King
Course Lecturer: Dr Deborah Clarke
The graduate training programme in Neuroscience is very well established, with an excellent record of achievement in terms of publications and future careers. The course gives an integrated view of Neuroscience, and provides a wide range of practical skills so that the students can ask questions and tackle problems that transcend the traditional disciplines from which Neuroscience has evolved. The first year follows the taught MSc course, during which students undertake two extended research projects from a choice of over one hundred offered by the extensive Neurosciences research community in Oxford. Students also attend the graduate programme lecture series which provides a broad education covering molecular, cellular, systems, computational and cognitive neuroscience. The three-year doctoral research project, which follows the award of the MSc, can be held in any of the Neuroscience Departments at Oxford and the generation of collaborative proposals is encouraged.
