KI-NIH for PhD
Short description of the KI-NIH PhD programme in Neuroscience
Karolinska Institutet (KI) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the U.S. have a shared interest in scientific progress and in fostering collaborative research in the fields of Neuroscience and Psychiatry.
In 2017, KI and NIH renewed the KI-NIH Joint Doctoral Training Program in Neuroscience (KI-NIH PhD Programme). The programme originally began in 2001 for the purpose of training doctoral students and promoting ground-breaking research leading to a better understanding of brain function, neurological diseases, neuropsychiatric disorders and new medical diagnostics and treatments.
The program provides the possibility for a doctoral student to divide his/her PhD training between the two participating institutions. The student spends a minimum of 18 months of the project at an NIH laboratory. Supervision is shared between researchers from both institutions. This allows the students to benefit from a broad scientific experience and international exposure. The doctoral degree is awarded at KI after four years of study.
