BSc Pharmacology PHAR3009 (library) and PHAR3010 (laboratory) Projects
Medawar Bldg. 250/334
|Project Application Steps|
Step 1: Ensure you are eligible to apply.
Students wishing to conduct a PHAR3010 (Laboratory) project in the Department of Pharmacology will need to satisfy the following criteria:
Students wishing to conduct a PHAR3009 (Library) project in the Department of Pharmacology will not need to satisfy any specific criteria, but are recommended to have taken either PHAR2002 or PHAR2005 in the 2nd year.
Step 2: Look at the list of Supervisor offering projects in the Table below.
The general research interest or area of expertise of each supervisor is indicated, but for details, you are urged to peruse their individual laboratory web-page(s) by clicking on the name of the member of staff.
|Step 3: Look at last year's project titles to assess the sort of topics covered in 2009-2010 by clicking on: Previous Projects|
Step 4: Complete a Project/Supervisor Selection Form.
Accessed from: Project_Selection_Form.
In the form you are asked to give details of the course modules you have taken, indicate your 1st year marks, and to choose five supervisors who you would like to apply to for a project (indicating order of preference).
Step 5: Return the completed application form.
Submit the completed Project Selection Form on-line by Friday 29th June to enter the first round of selection for Pharmacology Projects.
Step 6: Meeting/Interview with Perspective Supervisor.
After considering your academic details, if a supervisor is interested in your application, s/he will be contact you by e-mail with a view to arranging a meeting/interview.
Go prepared to meetings/interviews by doing some background reading on the interests of the laboratory being visited. In the discussions with the perspective supervisor(s), consult them about the likely timetabling of the project.
Supervisors will make a decision on whether or not to accept you after they have seen all other potential candidates.
Step 7: Registration or Re-ApplicationRegistration
*Important: Students choosing to do a project with an external supervisor (i.e. staff outwith the Departments of Neuroscience, Physiology & Pharmacology and Clinical Pharmacology) will be required to obtain an additional signature, on the Proforma, from a secondary supervisor within the Department of Neuroscience, Physiology & Pharmacology. This should be done following consultation with the Projects Tutor (Dr Sihra, Medawar Building, Room 250/334).
Key Regulations to Note
Please note the following points before registering for a PHAR3009 or PHAR3010 project:
The full "Regulations and Guidelines" for the conduct and submission of final year Pharmacology PHAR3009 (library) and PHAR3010 (laboratory) are available by clicking here. If students have difficulty accessing or printing these instructions, hardcopies can be obtained from the Bioscience Teaching Office (Rm. G10, Medawar Building). Students should read these regulations carefully before undertaking a PHAR3009 or PHAR3010 project.
