These skills will include those that can be transferred successfully to their choice of academic or other careers.
The PhD at the Department of Physiology, Development and Neuroscience is achieved by supervised research and is under the jurisdiction of the Degree Committee for the Faculty of Biology.
The Postgraduate School of Life Science also helps, by providing additional transferable skills training. Within the Department, the internal Departmental Postgraduate Educational Committee is responsible for all aspects of the running of the Physiology, Development and Neuroscience degree from University of Cambridge.
A suitable project falling within the interests of the supervisor, and sustainable within the limits imposed by the facilities available in the Department, is agreed by both student and supervisor, and endorsed by the Postgraduate Committee at the point of admission. Each postgraduate student has a primary supervisor, who will supervise the main body of their research, and an adviser, who acts as a supplementary source of advice and support.
Students attend a variety of seminars given by distinguished scientists and are also able to present their research by giving seminars at our annual symposium, usually in their first and third years.
