Career prospects

After your studies

This specialisation is an excellent preparation for a future research career in neuroscience, data science, and physics. In addition to the strong quantitative background expected from a physicist, you will acquire the ability to grasp and analyse complex multidisciplinary problems, typical of contemporary technological environments. You will also learn the communication skills necessary to work in teams including people with diverse specialisations.

The Master’s specialisation in Neurophysics gives you the chance to work at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour, and build up your own network of international renowned scientists who are working on the human brain: an excellent preparation for a future career in science.

Neurophysics will also provide you with general skills that are required for any other job you aspire:

  • the ability to structure complex problems
  • excellent social skills for working in a multidisciplinary team
