PhD studentships (including fully funded scholarships) are available in the
Laboratory of Neural Computation at the Center for Neuroscience and
Cognitive Systems of the Italian Institute of Technology based in Trento,

The laboratory of Neural Computation is interested in understanding how
populations of neurons in the cerebral cortex encode and exchange
information. The laboratory investigates these issues by developing
mathematical methods for single trial analysis of neural population
responses and by developing biologically plausible neural network models of
cortical function and dynamics. Successful PhD candidates would be able to
perform research within these topics. Further information about the
laboratory can be found at:


For further information and enquiries please contact by email Stefano
Panzeri (stefano.panzeri at iit.it) as soon as possible, attaching a CV to the

The deadline for application is June 19th. Late applications cannot be
considered. Formal applications should be submitted through the web site of
the Doctoral School in Cognitive and Brain Sciences - - Specialized
curriculum Cognitive Neuroscience , by following the link below


from which the link for the online application can be found.

 The aforementioned PhD studentship in the Laboratory of Neural Computation
falls under the area “COMPUTATIONAL NEUROSCIENCE -Computational approaches
to information processing in the cerebral cortex “ within the Doctoral
School call.

The PhD programme is expected to start November 2012 and the PhD is
normally expected to be completed in 3 years. The net salary is
approximately euro 13600 per year, and there are no tuition fees. The
