Queen Square Centre for Neuromuscular Diseases


Studentships and Fellowships


A core activity of the Centre is to provide training for basic science or clinical science PhD students in translational research in neuromuscular disease. The PhD program consists of:

1) a four-year doctoral training programme for basic scientists

2) a three-year doctoral training programme for clinically qualified scientists

Closely linked to to the MRC Centre is the MSc/MRes in Neuromuscular Disease.

Current and past non-clinical PhD students and clinical research fellows.

Studentships are advertised when available.


The MRC Centre for Neuromuscular Diseases offers a range of neuromuscular fellowships ranging from a period of six months to two years. These include general neuromuscular fellowships covering all types of inherited and acquired muscle, peripheral nerve, neuromuscular junction and anterior horn cell disorders. We also offer individualised fellowships to suit particular fellow requirements. These fellowships are available at both the London and the Newcastle sites of the MRC Centre for Neuromuscular Diseases.

Fellowships are advertised when available.
