Enquiries from potential PhD students and post-docs are always welcome. The lab can offer a range of research topics from behavioral analysis, neurophysiological studies to optical imaging of neural activity.

PhD candidates: Please see the Department; postgraduate web page;for full details. You will need to get in touch with me by January if you wish to be considered for a Departmental research-council funded studentship, which covers all costs for British students but only fees for other EU citizens. Applications from overseas (non-EU) students are also welcome, but you should bear in mind that there is relatively little funding available. There are some scholarships available (e.g. Gates), but these are usually very competitive. You should also make enquiries in your home country, to check whether there are suitable studentships that would cover your studies in the UK.

Post-docs: If you interested in joining the group, please send a CV and a covering email ( telling me where your interests lie. We then can discuss funding and research opportunities. We will have to secure funding for a research project by a successful grant application. Please be proactive at an early stage as any grant application will take considerable time until a final decision is being made.
