This studentship is generously funded by DEFINE and consists of full UK/EU tuition fees at UK/EU rate, as well as a Doctoral Stipend matching UK Research Council National Minimum £14,296 p.a. for 2016/17. Applicants will also receive a computer and office space. They will become a member of, and have access to courses offered by the University’s Doctoral Academy.

- 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.
