We welcome graduate students from a wide range of disciplines including medicine, neuroscience and psychology. The resources of the Department of Psychiatry, Oxford centre for Human Brain Activity and the University of Oxford provide a wide-range of training opportunities.
Within the Department of Psychiatry there is a regular programme of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry seminars, professorial meetings and guest lectures, which have a joint clinical and research focus.
For those interested in neuroimaging and specifically MEG, training in methods and analysis is available through OHBA. Equally, the FMRIB graduate training programme provides a thorough introduction to MRI physics and analysis so that graduate students can develop the skills to design and conduct research projects. A weekly research seminar provides further opportunities to discuss ideas.
Graduate students are also encouraged to take advantage of training available through the Medical Sciences Division, which includes courses on academic writing, presentation skills, statistics, teaching, research ethics and career development.
All graduate students have access to University library services and IT support. Individual supervision is provided by two supervisors in addition to support from the Director of Graduate Studies. Senior members of the Child and Adolescence group meet regularly with graduate students for supervision and advice. Prospective students who are interested in a studying with each of the sub-groups should contact them directly.
