Course summary

Overview

The Department of Forensic and Neurodevelopmental Sciences (FANS) in the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN) is one of the few leading teams in the world bringing together experts in brain development and antisocial behaviour. We offer prospective students supervision from internationally recognised academics with expertise in many areas of forensic and neurodevelopmental research. As one of Europe’s largest research groups focusing on the neuroscientific understanding of the development of prosocial and antisocial behaviours across the lifespan, we believe it is essential to investigate the determinants of normal development to understand abnormal behaviour (or illness).

Course detail

The Department of Forensic and Neurodevelopmental Sciences (FANS) offers prospective students supervision from internationally recognised academics with expertise in many areas of forensic and neurodevelopmental research. Working closely with their supervisors, our Graduate research students enjoy regular meetings to discuss their progress. We also foster student collaboration by encouraging networking with other members of staff within their research group along with participation in departmental research presentations and Institute seminars. At the start of their studies new graduate students are given a full induction and each full-time graduate research student is allocated their own workspace and computer. Facilities for part-time students can be arranged according to their needs. Students and supervisors are invited to participate in the thriving PhD student forum - a bi-monthly gathering for all students and supervisors to discuss research methods and present on-going projects. We encourage our students to publish their research results. In addition to supporting PhD Theses incorporating publications we also champion student poster and oral presentations at national and international conferences including: International Society of Autism Research Meeting, Organisation of Human Brain Mapping, and Society for the Study of Behavioural Phenotypes Conference.
