About Funded PhD in Theoretical Neuroscience and Machine Learning
A fully funded PhD in Theoretical Neuroscience and Machine Learning is available at University College London. The four-year PhD program involves intense coursework in theoretical and systems neuroscience, as well as machine learning, in the first year.
Our PhD studentships include both domestic and international tuition expenses, as well as an annual tax-free stipend of £26,000 and a travel budget for attending conferences and workshops.
Funded PhD in Theoretical Neuroscience and Machine Learning Study Programme
The four-year PhD programme includes in its first year intensive courses that provide a comprehensive introduction to theoretical and systems neuroscience and machine learning (see Teaching).
Multidisciplinary training in other areas of neuroscience is also available. We offer a supportive and interdisciplinary environment with close links to the Sainsbury Wellcome Centre for Neural Circuits and Behaviours (SWC) and the ELLIS Unit at UCL.
Students are strongly encouraged to work and interact closely with peers and faculty at SWC and the ELLIS Unit to benefit from this uniquely multidisciplinary research environment. Projects involving collaboration with researchers at and/or external to UCL are welcome.
Applicants must have a strong analytical and mathematical background, a keen interest in neuroscience and/or machine learning, and a relevant first degree (for example, in Computer Science, Engineering, Physics, Statistics, Mathematics, Neuroscience, or Cognitive Psychology).
Students seeking to combine work in neuroscience and machine learning are particularly encouraged to apply.
Please note that candidates offered a place on the Gatsby PhD programme will be required to meet UCL’s standard admissions requirements (including the English language requirements for international applicants).
Full funding is available to all students, regardless of nationality. Our PhD studentships cover UCL tuition fees for both home and international students and include an annual tax-free stipend of £26,000 and travel budget for attending conferences and workshops.
