Fully funded 3-year PhD studentship on EEG biomarkers of cognitive changes in dementia

Applications are invited for a fully funded 3-year PhD studentship starting Summer/Autumn 2015 to work with Dr Kevin Allan. Candidates should have a degree in psychology, neuroscience or biomedical science. Applicants with a mathematics or physics background, with interest in brain function and modelling of neural data, are also encouraged to apply. Applications are especially encouraged from qualified individuals with experience of EEG recording and/or multivariate  network modelling. The studentship is funded by Genting TauRx Diagnostic Centre Sdn. Bhd. (“GTDC”), a joint venture company between Genting Berhad of Malaysia and TauRx Pharmaceuticals Ltd, a University of Aberdeen spin-out company. Funding includes course fees as well as a generous annual stipend.

The aim of the studentship is to produce novel biomarkers of dementia by applying newly developed network analysis techniques to EEG data. The PhD student will develop, test and refine EEG protocols sensitive to cognitive processes affected by dementia, and will have the opportunity to work with a team of researchers analyzing resting-state EEG data from clinical drug trials. The PhD student will work specifically on ways of optimizing electrode number and configuration for the detection of early stage Alzheimer’s disease using the ‘resting-state’ approach. Local data collection will take place in the University of Aberdeen School of Psychology EEG Lab under the supervision of Dr Kevin Allan and Dr Bjoern Schelter (University of Aberdeen Institute for Complex Systems and Mathematical Biology).

For more information, and to apply, please make an enquiry through the FindaPhD website (direct link). Informal enquiries prior to application are strongly encouraged and should be made to Dr Kevin Allan: k.allan@abdn.ac.uk or 01224 273932. The closing date is Friday, the 3rd of April.
