Neuroscience is a multidisciplinary field, encompassing different aspects of psychology, biology, chemistry, neurophysiology, genetics and epidemiology. Doctoral students will work alongside top researchers in state-of-the-art facilities in microscopy, histology, neurochemistry, behavioural analysis, electrophysiology and molecular genetic analysis. PhD students will have the opportunity to develop research projects aimed at finding the answers to mental health diseases including addiction, depression, Parkinson’s disease, obesity, dementia and traumatic injury.

An M.Sc. from an appropriate university is usually required for entry to the Ph.D. program. Meeting the minimum requirements does not automatically guarantee acceptance into the program. In addition to transcripts and letters of reference, application packages must include a statement of interest.

Students who are already enrolled in the M.Sc. program, and intend to subsequently continue into a Ph.D., may have the option of being fast-tracked into the Ph.D. program. Eligibility will be determined by recommendation from the M.Sc. thesis committee, the Graduate Chair in Neuroscience, and the Dean of Graduate and Postdoctoral Affairs.
