The University of Queensland is delighted to offer a PhD position. This position is available for three years. Applications should be sent before June 16, 2019.

The Queensland Brain Institute works to understand the development, organisation and function of the brain.

We aim to (1) Develop novel therapeutic approaches to treat disorders of neural function and (2) Use our understanding of brain function to improve learning in classrooms and in the workplace.
