Potential Projects 2019-20
The majority of applicants to the DPhil in Clinical Neurosciences apply to work with a specific Principal Investigator (PI) on a predefined project. It is a departmental requirement that applicants contact their prospective supervisor(s) to discuss projects in advance of submitting any application.
Please note that some PIs may choose not to advertise any projects, so if you are interested in working with a particular PI and no project is listed, please contact them directly to enquire as to whether they will be offering projects or accepting students in October 2019.
