The Centre for Research and Ageing, Health and Wellbeing in the ANU College of Medicine, Biology and Environment is seeking expressions of interest for their Research PhD Scholarship program, to start in March 2013.
This scholarship will provide an excellent opportunity for students with a background in psychology and/or neuroscience to undertake doctoral training in neuroimaging and population health research. The ARC Discovery-funded program is part of a broader research program focused on identifying age- and disease-related brain and cognitive changes. This innovative research aims at characterising normal brain structure in middle and old age and at contrasting the relative influence of processes associated with typical healthy ageing and chronic disease on cerebral structure, cognition and mental health.
The successful candidate will have a bachelors degree with honours class I or IIA or a masters degree. While no neuroimaging prerequisites are required, the candidate is expecting to be generally interested in neuroscience and learning new computer-based technical analyses.
For additional information on this exciting scholarship opportunity, or to submit an expression of interest, which must include an academic transcript, please contact Dr Nicolas Cherbuin on firstname.lastname@example.org or 02 6125 3858. The closing date is 31 January 2013.
