The ZENITH graduate programme will train 15 students in cutting-edge systems neuroscience. Students will undertake interdisciplinary research projects along with advanced workshops, scientific symposia and opportunities for industrial placements.
The three-year program is fully funded by ZENITH and will lead to the award of a PhD in Neuroscience by the relevant partner University (associated with the primary project supervisor). Working language throughout the programme is English.
ZENITH is keen to attract students from diverse backgrounds including Biology, Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science and Engineering. Applicants should note the following eligibility criteria:
Applicants may be of any nationality.
Applicants should hold a bachelor’s or master’s degree in a relevant scientific field.
Mobility Rule: Students must apply to a host institution in a country where they have not lived, worked or studied for more than 12 months in the three years prior to the start of the programme (September 2020). In most cases this will mean students move to a different country from that in which they carried out their bachelor’s or master’s degree.
Students who have started research, must have less than 4 years of research career and have not been awarded a doctoral degree at the time of recruitment by the host organisation.
Applicants are encouraged to reach out to principal investigators to discuss eligibility and projects.
