MSc Studentships: Cognitive Neuroscience with Biomedical Imaging

Posted on 23 April 2012

Applications are now being accepted for two MRC-funded MSc studentships in
Cognitive Neuroscience with specialisation in Biomedical Imaging.

The University of York houses one of the UK's premier neuroimaging centres
(see link below) and is pioneering several new brain imaging and analysis
techniques including hyperpolarized MRI/fMRI, source-imaged steady state EEG
and MEG and measures of cortical connectivity.

The MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience is a prestigious course aiming at training
students in preparation for academic research at PhD level.
Studentship holders will follow the course syllabus and will receive
specific research training on the biomedical imaging techniques being
developed at York. Researchers involved in these projects include Professors
Gary Green, Simon Duckett, Tony Morland, Alex Wade and Dr. Heidi Baseler.

Applicants must have a first or upper-second class degree in a physical or
biological science. Students with a background in computer science, physics,
chemistry, engineering and mathematics are encouraged to apply. Applications
will be judged solely on academic merit but must satisfy MRC eligibility
criteria (UK national or EU national residing in the UK).

The studentships will cover fees plus annual living expenses in accordance
with standard MRC rates.

Applications should be made via the course website following the links to
the online application system.
