PhD Projects

In2PrimateBrains proposes a highly competitive training-through-research programme dedicated to the study of neuronal intra and inter-areal communication in non-human primate (NHP) brains.

Our Training Network consists of fifteen individual scientific projects, with extensive collaborations between consortium institutions. We are currently recruting PhD candidates for each project. Use the links below to find out more information. 

We are now accepting applications. Recruiment will close on 15 May 2021. Please apply through our online form
