Edinburgh Neuroscience's Autumn Training School for PhD students has run since 2012 and it is hugely popular.  It is open to all types of PhD student (basic, clinical, neuroinformatics, psychology) provided they are working in a neuroscience-related field at Edinburgh. It aims to:

  • Encourage interdisciplinary mixing from the earliest stages of a research career
  • Instil the skills required to aspire to the very highest research standards
  • Provide information to allow planning for the next career phase
  • Build confidence in approaching your future studies and career

It is specifically designed to encourage students to attend twice during their PhD:

  • at the start of your first year in order to meet students from across all research centres and learn about some of the fundermental principals and skills required to be an excellent researcher
  • in you final year to help you find out about different future career options and how to prepare for funding applications, plus impart some of what what you have learnt to the new first year students!

This full day event is a mixture of activities/talks for all students together, as well as dedicated parallel workshops specifically tailored for first year and for final years students.


Registration is available to first and final year PhD students at the University of Edinburgh undertaking neuroscience-related projects regardless of discipline (so includes psychology, neuro-informatics, clinical etc). There will be a small £15 fee to register, which includes all refreshments and a hot sit-down lunch (which is a great opportunity to make new friends). Registration is now open, it will close at 5pm on Mon 22 October 2018 or when we are full.
