Internships

Professor MacLaren does not offer internships within his research group. Medical students who wish to apply for an internship at the University of Oxford are encouraged to apply for a place in the Elective programme coordinated by the Medical Sciences Division.

DPhil Studentships


LaboratoryWe welcome applications from prospective candidates who:

  • Fulfil the University of Oxford's graduate admissions criteria.
  • Have a strong academic record at undergraduate level, both in terms of grades achieved and awards received.
  • Have ideally already published scientific or medical research papers.

Bioscience graduates who have obtained funded scholarships (such as Rhodes, Fulbright or Marshall scholarships) to undertake postgraduate studies at the University of Oxford should apply for a DPhil post in the Clinical Neurosciences programme, under Professor MacLaren's supervision. Other candidates should apply for a DPhil post in the Interdisciplinary Medical Research or Neuroscience programmes - if successful, they may subsequently request to be supervised by Professor MacLaren.

UK-based physicians with excellent academic credentials (including publications in peer-reviewed journals) are encouraged to contact Professor MacLaren to discuss a research proposal suitable for submission to the Medical Research Council's Clinical Research Training Fellowship programme.
