文章来源:知识人网整理       更新时间:2017年05月09日

PhD in Psychology - Schizophrenia

City, University of London - School of Arts and Social Sciences - Department of Psychology

We are searching for a PhD candidate to work on a project entitled “The neurodevelopmental model of early-onset schizophrenia: a longitudinal MRI and fMRI study” in University of London.

Early-onset schizophrenia (EOS) represents a more severe and rare variant of adult-onset schizophrenia, with onset before 18 years old. In recent year, the ‘neurodevelopmental’ model has been gaining support and posits that the illness is the end stage of abnormal neurodevelopmental processes that began years before. Identifying potentially predictive factors related to a more favourable outcome can positively impact on long-term outcome, especially in young patients. In order to test this we will be utilizing longitudinal (5 year interval) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and functional MRI (fMRI) already acquired from adolescents who were diagnosed with EOS.

City, University of London

City is in the top five per cent of universities in the world according to the Times Higher Education World University Rankings and attracts around 19,500 students (35% at postgraduate level) from 150 countries. It is well above the sector average for graduate prospects in most of its subjects, is in the top ten in the UK for starting salaries and is the top university in London for student satisfaction. City joined the University of London federation in October 2016.
