We encourage proposals from multidisciplinary supervisory teams for 4-year (MRes+PhD) studentships at the interface of neuroscience and engineering.  CDT students will study in a structured “1+3” training programme, with the first year as the MRes in NeurotechnologyTo be considered, proposals must fulfil the CDT Neurotechnology criteria of being multidisciplinary, in terms of the project, training, and supervisory team.  Studentships provide full tuition fees and funding for 4 years, plus an annual consumables allowance. 

Joint proposals may be submitted on a rolling basis up to a final deadline of Friday 25th May 2018.  However, early applications are encouraged, as funding for joint projects is limited.
