Working with us (PhD, internship opportunities)

If you have a background in music cognition (or music/psychology) with a strong interest in music cognition/cognitive neuroscience of music) we would be pleased to consider you for a voluntary full time intern position or as a potential PhD candidate.

We welcome voluntary interns at two times during the year: From December to April and from May to September. There is some flexibility within these dates but essentially we offer at least 6 months voluntary experience for someone who wishes to work full time (at least 4 days a week).

As an intern you would have the opportunity to work on a number of different projects within the MMB group using multiple methodologies, and to gain valuable research experience as a result. We would also welcome ideas for research that was within the expertise of the group (see below for details). You would be able to attend Eminent Speaker talks , open training sessions, and take an active role in the day to day running of our lab.

If you wish to apply please contact us at least 4 weeks in advance of your proposed start date, with a maximum two page CV and a one page cover letter stating your reasons for applying for the internship.
