The Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctoral Program "EuroSPIN" (European 
Study Programme in Neuroinformatics) is inviting applications from 
students having a solid background in mathematics, physics, 
computer sciences, biochemistry or neuroscience (on a master level 
or equivalent), in all cases with computer science skills. 
Documented interest in research like activities (e.g. demonstrated 
in the form of master thesis work, or participation in research 
related activities) is of large importance. Also fluency in English 
is requested.

Four partners participate:

- Bernstein Center Freiburg, Germany
- KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden
- National Centre for Biological Science, India
- University of Edinburgh (UoE), UK

They are all research leaders in the Neuroinformatics field, but 
they have complementary strengths.

Each student will spend most of the time at two of the partner 
universities, and also receive a joint (or double) PhD degree 
following a successful completion of the studies. The mobility 
periods, as well as the courses a student will follow, are tailored 
individually based on: a) the PhD students background; b) which 
constellations of partners that are involved, as well as c) the 
specific research project. During the PhD period each student has 
one main supervisor from each of the two universities that grant 
the PhD degree.

There are excellent scholarship opportunities for students accepted 
to an Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate programme. An employment 
contract will be given to all selected PhD students during the 
study time, which is 4 years.
