A Time for New Researchers to Blossom – PhD studentship Applications

Reading Time: < 1 minute

It is that time of year again when we open our Online Summary Application Form for our next round of PhD studentship applications, for projects starting in October 2014. The deadline for summary applications is Friday 3 May 2013.

Last Time
Our last round saw an all time record number of studentship applications. We received 18 summary applications and went on to fund five of these attracting new researchers and institutes.

Promising Young Researchers
Our PhD studentship grants allow us to attract and fund promising young scientists starting their careers in MND research and to help us continue to develop the UK basic research capacity. As with all our research projects, we aim to fund the best of the best. Our rigorous application process allows us to ensure we only fund studentships of the highest quality and of direct relevance to MND. To find out more on our application process please see our grant application process.

We are currently funding 15 studentships; five of these are due to start in October 2013.

We hope this year’s PhD studentship round is as exciting as last year!

The MND Association’s vision is a world free from MND. Realising this vision means investing more in research, further developing partnerships with the research community, funding bodies and industry, while ensuring that advances in understanding and treating MND are communicated as quickly and effectively as possible. Our Research Development team, composed of 11 members, work hard to achieve this. Principally, the Research Information team within this are involved in communication activities including this MND Research blog.
