Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit


Study and work

We offer doctoral and postdoctoral training in an outstanding research environment.

We offer doctoral training in theoretical neuroscience and machine learning, including taught courses in the first year (see Teaching). This four-year PhD programme is highly competitive, with up to six students being accepted each year.

The Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit (GCNU) and Sainsbury Wellcome Centre for Neural Circuits and Behaviour (SWC) have partnered up to create a unique fellowship scheme for early career researchers who wish to gain research independence and work at the interface between theoretical and experimental neuroscience. The fellowship aims to bridge theoretical and experimental neuroscience and catalyse strong interactions between the GCNU and SWC communities. 

We offer opportunities for postdoctoral fellows to conduct cutting-edge research in theoretical neuroscience and/or machine learning. Postdoctoral positions are typically funded for up to three years. Fellowships are available on an ad hoc basis, for opportunities see our Vacancies page.
