The Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctoral Program "EuroSPIN" is inviting
applications for fully funded 4-year joint PhD studentships between KTH
(Stockholm), the University of Edinburgh, NCBS (Bangalore), and the
University of Freiburg in the field of Neuroinformatics.
Neuroinformatics applies computational tools and approaches that are
essential for understanding the brain. Neuroinformatics thus links
neuroscience and the engineering, computational, and physical sciences.
Sample project are listed on the website.
The projects are collaborative and typically involve two of the four
above institutes and will require some travel.
Students should have a solid background in mathematics, physics,
computer sciences, biochemistry or neuroscience (on a master level or
equivalent) and excellent quantitative skills. An excellent academic
record, documented interest in research and fluency in English are
required. Experience in neuroscience is not required.
If you are interested, go to www.kth.se/eurospin
EXTENDED deadline for applications: 31st Dec 2011.
The University of Edinburgh is a charitable body, registered in
Scotland, with registration number SC005336.
