PhD Stipends in Computational Neuroscience

PhD Stipends in computational neuroscience are available in the
research unit of Prof. Sen Cheng in the Mercator Research Group
“Structure of Memory” (MRG1) at the Ruhr University Bochum in Germany.
The work will focus on computer simulations of neuronal networks to
model learning and memory processes, particularly in the hippocampus.

Candidates should have an excellent Master degree, or equivalent, in
neuroscience, physics, mathematics, engineering or a related field.
Excellent programming skills and experience with computer simulations
are mandatory. 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 able 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.
