PhD Position in Computational Neuroscience

Applications are invited for a PhD position in computational
neuroscience in the research unit of Prof. Sen Cheng in the Mercator
Research Group “Structure of Memory” (MRG1) at the Ruhr University
Bochum in Germany. Our unit investigates the theoretical basis for
learning and memory processes at the neuronal circuit level.

Candidates should have an excellent Master degree, or equivalent, in
neuroscience, physics, mathematics, engineering or a related field.
Experience in mathematical or computer modeling is required.
Familiarity with computational neuroscience would be a further asset.

The Ruhr University Bochum is home to a vibrant research community in
neuroscience. Students will be encouraged to join the International
Graduate School of Neuroscience and interact with the Institute of
Neuroinformatics. MRG1 is funded by the Stiftung Mercator and
investigates episodic and semantic memory processes and their relation
to other cognitive functions. MRG1 comprises a diverse and
interdisciplinary team of philosophers and experimental as well as
theoretical neuroscientists. The main language of communication in the
group is English. For further information see www.rub.de/cns.
