The Intelligent Systems Research Centre (ISRC) at the University of Ulster, UK, invites applications for 3-year Ph.D. studentships. A list of studentships offered for the academic year 2015-2016 and the projects’ details can be found at: http://www.compeng.ulster.ac.uk/rgs/showPhDProposals.php?ri=3. In particular, I have the available computational neuroscience projects available for 2015:

1.     Computational modelling and analysis of spatiotemporal brain dynamics in decision making.

2.     A neuro-inspired multisensory decision-making model with self-awareness for autonomous mobile robots.

3.     Computational neuromodulation: neural circuit modelling.

The computational neuroscience research at the ISRC focuses on both fundamental brain and behavioural sciences, and their applications, including clinical neuroscience and neuroengineering.

The application process for the Ph.D. studentship is opened with a closing date for applications on the 27th February 2015. All studentships, which are highly competitive, are expected to start in September 2015, and include tuition fees and an annual maintenance allowance for EU and non-EU students. All applicants should hold a first or upper second class honours degree (or equivalent) in an appropriate subject, such as computer science, engineering, physics, mathematics or neuroscience. Applicants must be highly motivated and willing to pursue research and develop skills across disciplines. If you wish to apply for a studentship, please follow the instructions at: http://www.compeng.ulster.ac.uk/rgs/guideForApplicants.php. Unless indicated, successful students will be based primarily at the ISRC with opportunities to interact with other related ISRC research teams, research groups from the Biomedical Sciences Research Institute, the Centre for Stratified Medicine, and there may also be opportunities for spin-outs. A functional brain mapping facility has recently been established at the ISRC. The ISRC is situated in the city of Derry~Londonderry, which has received the City of Culture 2013 award. Please note that some studentship (DEL Awards) have restrictions on residence eligibility – see guidance notes for details. For further information, please contact me (k.wong-lin at ulster.ac.uk).
