New Master programme in Systems Neuroscience with funded studentships
01 February 2010
The Biotechnology and Biological Science Research Council has funded 12 studentships for a new Master of Research Program in System Neuroscience. The aim of this Master Course is to train a new generation of neuroscientists who can apply computational methods into the design of experiments and their interpretation. This Master Program will be run in close collaboration by three Departments within the University of Bristol: Physiology and Pharmacology (led by Professor Richard Apps), Clinical Medicine (Dr. Astrid Linthorst), and Computer Science (Dr. Rafal Bogacz).
As a part of their Course, the students will take the Computational Neuroscience unit taught in the Department of Computer Science, and may conduct their research under a joint supervision of members of academic staff with experimental and computational background.
