PhD Studentships

Through our successful PhD studentship programme we have a track record of attracting and funding promising young scientists to develop their careers in MND research. We only fund research of the highest scientific excellence and greatest relevance to MND.


The deadline date for receipt of summary applications is 4 May 2018

This round is now open. To apply please register and complete our Online Summary Application Form.  Before completing the form please read our Guidelines, Terms and Conditions and our Guide to Completing the Online Summary Application Form. For further information please email or telephone 01604 611873.


Awards will be offered for three years to allow registered students to undertake fulltime research for a PhD.


Studentship applications are invited from prospective supervisors, based in UK and Ireland laboratories. Collaborative projects between departments are welcomed, provided the relative roles of the supervisors and departments are addressed. Supervisors should recruit and nominate the student of their choice (subject to MND Association approval). Students should hold, or expect to obtain, a first or upper second class honours degree
