MRC Centre for Neuromuscular Diseases Studentships
4-year MPHIL/PHD Programme: MRC Centre for Neuromuscular Diseases
There are no new studentships available for the current academic year.
Any future studentships will be listed here.
The MRC Centre for Neuromuscular Diseases is a partnership between the UCL Institutes of Neurology and Child Health, and Newcastle University, and is a recognised centre of excellence for research and education in neuromuscular diseases.
Our 4-year MPhil/PhD programme is a vital part of the MRC Centre and offers an excellent opportunity to carry out unique and exciting research in one of our five disease themes: muscular dystrophy, channelopathy, neuropathy, IBM/protein aggregate myopathy and mitochondrial disease.
Students carry out three lab rotations in year 1, and in years 2-4 complete a main research project in the lab of their choice. During the first year, through a variety of lectures and tutorials and the three lab rotations, students will be given the skills and knowledge they need to undertake the subsequent three years of their PhD. First year students will be mentored and offered guidance in choosing their subsequent 3 year PhD project.
