An enjoyable day for all neuroscience -related PhD students, regardless of background
November 1, 2017

Edinburgh Neuroscience and the Centre for Cognitive Ageing & Cognitive Epidemiology have jointly organised this Autumn Training School for PhD students since 2012 and it is hugely popular.  It is open to all types of PhD students (basic, clinical, neuroinformatics, psychology) provided they are working in a neuroscience-related field at Edinburgh. It aims to:

  • Encourage interdisciplinary mixing from the earliest stages of a research career
  • Instil the skills required to aspire to the very highest research standards
  • Provide information to allow planning for the next career phase
  • Build confidence in approaching your future studies and career

It is specifically designed to encourage students to attend twice during their PhD:

  • at the start of your first year in order to meet students from across all research centres and learn about some of the fundermental principals and skills required to be an excellent researcher
  • in you final year to help you find out about different future career options and how to prepare for funding applications, plus impart some of what what you have learnt to the new first year students!

This full day event is a mixture of activities/talks for all students together, as well as dedicated parallel workshops specifically tailored for first year and for final years students.

The 2017 Autumn School for PhD Students will take place on Wednesday 01 November 2017 at the John McIntyre Conference Centre, Pollock Halls.
