We are delighted to be able to offer up to three 3-year Clinical Research PhD Fellowships funded by named scholarships: two will be Rowling Scholars of the Anne Rowling Regenerative Neurology Clinic (ARRNC), and the third will be a Dr Hugh S.P. Binnie Scholar at the UK Dementia Research Institute at Edinburgh (UK DRI).

These prestigious scholarships each offer the same generous full salary on the clinical scale while you study towards a PhD on discovery or translation in neurodegenerative disorders.

You will conduct an original research project that will be co-designed around your scientific vision, in line with the research strategy of the UK DRI and/or ARRNC and focused on dementias including Alzheimer’s disease, progressive multiple sclerosis (PMS), motor neurone disease (MND) or Parkinson’s.

You will benefit from the supervision and mentoring of internationally leading clinical and non-clinical investigators. You will produce data for high-quality publications, grant proposals and dissemination to the public, as well as receiving training in transferable skills. At the end of your fellowship, you will be equipped with the knowledge and skills required to compete as an independent investigator in the area of translational or clinical research.
