Dear colleagues,

find below information about a graduate school at Max Planck institutes and the university in Leipzig, Germany. The research covers topics in systems neuroscience and computational neuroscience.

Best wishes, Stefan Kiebel


The International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) on Neuroscience of Communication invites applications for PhD scholarships

The IMPRS on Neuroscience of Communication offers a unique interdisciplinary graduate programme to study the functional, structural, and plastic bases of human communication through an integrative and interdisciplinary approach. Its overriding goal is to train PhD students in multidisciplinary aspects involved in communicative action. The programme draws on elaborate modern imaging techniques (7-Tesla MRI, 3-Tesla MRI, 306-channel MEG system), psychophysics and computational modeling. The IMPRS is a common program of the Max Planck Institute (MPI) for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences, Leipzig, the University of Leipzig (Germany), the MPI for Evolutionary Anthropology, Leipzig, and the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience at University College London, UK. The graduate programme will start on April 1st, 2012).

Successful candidates will be accepted into one of the following four modules of the school:

(1) Verbal Communication: Language

(2) Foundation of social cognition and emotions

(3) Neuroscience: Basic and Clinical

(4) Methods: Physics of neuroimaging and computational neuroscience

There are two research clusters for computational neuroscience and neuroimaging methods:
