Applications are invited for a Ph.D. studentship in Neural Data Science, Computational Neuromodulation and Metalearning, tenable in the Faculty of Computing, Engineering and the Built Environment at Ulster University, UK.


This PhD project is a collaboration between Ulster University and the University of Oxford (amongst other collaborators) on the computational modelling and theoretical development of neuromodulation in decision-making and learning. For more information, please refer to:

The application process for the Ph.D. studentship is opened with a closing date for applications on the 7th February 2020.


The computational and cognitive neuroscience research community at the Intelligent Systems Research Centre at Ulster University focuses on both fundamental brain and behavioural sciences, and their applications, including neuro-inspired AI, neural engineering and neurotechnology, and clinical neuroscience. The successful PhD candidate will be based at the Research Centre while interacting closely with collaborators at the University of Oxford and other international research institutes.


If you wish to discuss your application or enquire more about this Ph.D. studentship, please contact: Dr. KongFatt Wong-Lin (
