Applications are invited from well-qualified candidates for one Msc/PhD studentship within the Centre for Cognitive Ageing and Cognitive Epidemiology (CCACE), University of Edinburgh. The studentship will focus on neuroscience and the ageing brain and will begin in September 2012. It will be based in the College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine. Applicants should have a good undergraduate and/or masters degree, as appropriate to the chosen research topic; for example, in neuroscience, biomedical sciences, genetics, molecular biology/medicine, neuroimaging, statistics or another biologically cognate discipline.
The successful candidate will generally first complete a relevant taught MSc of their choice and then choose a PhD project based on the research aims of the Centre with supervisors spanning at least two of the Centre's research groupings. Applicants may go straight to the PhD if they already have an MSc. S/he will join a vibrant, successful, highly-collaborative community of researchers across the University in the areas of cognitive ageing and cognitive epidemiology, and will participate in the Centre's events.
