PhD and MPhil Studentships
The ARC welcomes applications from prospective PhD and MPhil students who wish to pursue a research degree in the field of autism. We are interested to hear from people whose interests lie within any of our research programmes, or who wish to extend any of the projects already underway in the ARC.
Please send a brief research proposal and your curriculum vitae to our admin team. This will be forwarded to potential supervisors who will get in touch with you directly if your proposal fits with their existing work programme, and if there is capacity within the ARC in the following academic year.
Some funding in the form of doctoral studentships is available competitively via the Department of Psychiatry, and applicants are also encouraged to apply for their own funding from interested charitable or governmental bodies.
Please note, that to formally apply you will need to complete the University’s online Application Form (see https://www.graduate.study.cam.ac.uk/how-do-i-apply). The closing date for all October applications is 30 June. You will need to secure your own funding, and it’s important to note that many funding competitions have deadlines before Christmas preceding the year of entry.
Please do not submit an application unless a potential supervisor from the ARC has agreed in principle to supervise your PhD or MPhil. The first step should be to email a potential supervisor informally to explore if there is a good fit between your research plan and existing ARC research priorities.
Further information about graduate level studies and how to obtain funding can be found at: www.graduate.study.cam.ac.uk
Advice about submitting a formal application for a PhD or MPhil in the Department of Psychiatry is available by email from the Graduate Education Administrator, Adisa Broadhurst.
The ARC welcomes applicants from postdoctoral scientists, especially in the field of biomedical and cognitive neuroscience aspects of autism. Applicants should email Professor Baron-Cohen directly with a research proposal, and should also consider applying to relevant charities or governmental bodies for grant support. From time to time, Postdoctoral positions become available at the ARC. These are advertised on the Cambridge University jobs pages.
From time to time, Research Assistant positions also become available at the ARC. These are advertised on the Cambridge University jobs pages.
We are able to offer a handful of places for each academic year. Please contact our admin team with your Curriculum Vitae.
