University of Oxford – Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences Qualification type: PhD Location: Oxford Funding for: UK Students, EU Students Funding amount: £14,057 Hours: Full Time Placed on: 30th November 2015 Closes: 8th January 2016 Reference: NDCN/RB/1617ACYR1M DPhil Studentship available to start in October 2016 Computational Neuroscience Studentship: Computational modelling on neural circuits affected by Parkinson’s disease We are looking for a highly motivated and creative candidate for doctoral studies in computational neuroscience. The research project will employ computational methods to investigate how to best control neural circuits affected by Parkinson’s disease and essential tremor with different forms of electrical stimulation, such as deep brain stimulation or transcranial electric current stimulation. The work will involve building statistical or dynamical models that can predict responses to stimulation and suggest best stimulation…
