The CIDDRG provides the opportunity for some undergraduate students at the University of Cambridge, and on occasion at other Universities (joint supervision), to undertake research projects, usually outside of university terms.
The CIDDRG is interdisciplinary and members have supervised undergraduate and postgraduate students from a variety of academic backgrounds, including the biological, cognitive and behavioural sciences, social and political sciences, geography, the law, and philosophy.
Students interested in intellectual and other developmental disabilities, and who have a potential project in mind or wish to find out more about the CIDDRG, are advised to contact Agnes Hoctor firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance.
Applying to the CIDDRG as a post-graduate student
The CIDDRG forms part of the Section of Developmental Psychiatry in the Department of Psychiatry, which is itself part of the School of Biological, Medical and Veterinary Sciences http://www.biomed.cam.ac.uk/gradschool/prospective.
We welcome applications for post-graduate degrees relating to intellectual or other developmental disabilities. Currently, applications are invited for a 3 year PhD studentship, starting in October, 2015, and funded in full (fees and maintenance) by the NIHR CLAHRC (Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care) East of England at Cambridgeshire & Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust (www.nihr-clarc-eoe).
