MRC Prion Unit and Institute of Prion diseases



MRC Prion Unit at UCL 4 Year PhD programme

Applications from both UK and international students are invited for two places on this PhD programme.

During the first year, students undertake three rotation projects within the laboratories of three Senior Unit Staff. They also take one MSc module in Neuroscience or a related subject, and receive training in Statistics, Bioinformatics and Programming.

Towards the end of their first year, students select a supervisor with whom to undertake a “conventional” three year PhD in years 2-4 of their studies. The rotations will broaden the students understanding of prion biology as well as other neurodegenerative diseases and most importantly enable them to make an informed choice of project and mentor.

We are seeking highly-motivated enthusiastic students who aspire to pursue an academic career.
