Job opportunities

Neuroscience at the University of Edinburgh
Each research group is affiliated with one or more interdisciplinary centers that are designed to encourage collaboration within research themes and across traditional disciplinary boundaries.

General research themes include:

  • Clinical Brain Sciences: Brain imaging, prion diseases, psychiatric research, psychological medicine and stroke
  • Molecular, cellular and behavioural research: Degeneration and repair, developmental neurobiology, behavioral and systems neuroscience, membrane signaling and plasticity
  • Human Cognitive Neuroscience: Memory, attention, and visual cognition in humans
  • Adaptive and Neural Computation: Theoretical neuroscience, cognitive science, computer science, computational science, mathematics and statistics

The objectives of the CNR are:

  1. Strengthen our themes of cognition, neurodevelopment and neurodegeneration by recruitment of fellows and permanent staff.  In the previous five years six new group leaders recruited to their first independent position.
  2. Coordinate and facilitate neuroscience activities in Edinburgh and to promote the public understanding of neuroscience.
  3. Provide a neuroscience graduate training programme.
  4. Catalyse interaction between basic and clinical neuroscience by means of new appointments and clinical fellowships, and interdisciplinary collaborations*
