Eligibility and Criteria
- Academic criteria : The successful candidate will be an enthusiastic and innovative individual. You will have, or expect to gain, a first-class/good upper-second degree, or a distinction/merit at Master’s level, in psychology, biology, neuroscience, or engineering/computer science. Research experience in electrophysiological and/or animal behavior methods is desirable but not essential, as are programming skills. You will need to have good written and oral communication skills. In view of the limited number of awards and the very high standard of applications received, successful applicants are likely to have a very good first degree.
- Residency : This studentship is open to students of any nationality. Students classified as international for fee purposes have to self-fund the difference between home and international fees.
There is no nationality restriction.
