PhD-Positions in Computational Neuroscience and Neuroinformatics

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
