- Introduction and objectives
The inter-university doctoral programme in Neuroscience brings together neuroscientists from five universities (the University of Castilla-La Mancha, the University of A Coruña, the Universidad Pablo de Olavide, the University of the Basque Country/EHU and the URV) to attain a sufficient critical mass to meet its objectives.
Our mission is to strengthen Neuroscience by attracting and incorporating students, giving them the education, experience of research excellence and tutoring that they need to become leaders in research and education. Neuroscience research is interdisciplinary and the programme covers almost all areas of expertise in this field, offering tremendous opportunities thanks to the variety and quality of the research groups involved and their international contacts.
- An inter-university doctorate
The Neurosciences doctoral programme is coordinated by the University of the Basque Country and is jointly organised by the following universities:
Holders of a doctoral degree in Neurosciences have four immediate career opportunities:
- Postdoctoral research in health and life sciences.
- University teaching and research.
- Training of health professionals and researchers: researchers in medical/health personnel, medical interns (Spanish MIR), pharmacy interns (Spanish FIR), Biology interns (Spanish BIR) and chemistry interns (Spanish QUIR).
- Training for industry, mainly in biotechnology, robotics and instrumentation engineering for diagnosis and treatment of brain diseases.
