PhD program in Neuroscience
Three year research project developed in one of
our research groups.
The IN provides a wide range of shared facilities
—Confocal and multiphoton microscopy
—fMRI of small animals
—genetically modified animals
Postgraduate training has been a permanent activity of the Institute of Neuroscience. Given the high interdisciplinary nature of modern neuroscience, newly trained researchers require an understanding of several fundamental disciplines of biology, (biochemistry, molecular and cellular biology, genetics) as well as those more specific to neurobiology (neuroanatomy, neuropharmacology, neurophysiology or systems neurobiology) The postgraduate training programme of the Institute integrates a theoretical and practical approach to the diverse methodologies used to study the nervous system. The programme is designed to stimulate the initiative and abilities of the students, helping to orient the development of their scientific careers.
As part of the learning activities, students must participate in scientific seminars given by international lecturers and researchers in which original research is presented, and discussion of current neuroscientific themes is encouraged.
The IN Neurosciences Doctorate Programme belongs to the Network of European Neuroscience Schools (NENS) and Spanish Network of Doctorate Programmes in Neuroscience which allow for the interchange of students and lecturers between their respective members. The Programme has received 'Quality Approval' status from the Ministry of Education and Science.
A number of four year PhD fellowships, through the JAE and Consolider Initiatives of the CSIC, are available for students of the programme.
