Prof. Sen Cheng, Institute for Neural Computation at the *Ruhr
University Bochum* in Germany, invites applicants for an International
Student Fellowship to be awarded through the international research
training group “Integration and Representation of Sensory Processes”
(SFB 874). After successful completion of this 4 month fellowship, the
student might be offered a PhD position for a further 3 years.
The work will focus on studying the interaction between neocortex and
hippocampus using spiking neural network models. The position is part of
the project "Theory of the interplay between sensory cortices and
hippocampus in memory formation and retrieval", which is funded by the
German Research Foundation as part of the collaborative research center
SFB 874. The appointment will be initially from 01.03.2019-30.06.2019.
Candidates should have an excellent university degree in neuroscience,
physics, mathematics, engineering or a related field and be eligible to
enroll in a relevant PhD program at the Ruhr University. Competence in
mathematical modeling and excellent programming skillsare mandatory.
Familiarity with computational neuroscience or computational cognitive
modeling would be a further asset.
Only candidates who have not previously lived in Germany will be
considered. For further information regarding the IRTG fellowship please
The Ruhr University Bochum is home to a vibrant research community in
neuroscience and cognitive science. The Institute for Neural Computation
is an independent research unit and combines different areas of
expertise ranging from experimental and theoretical neuroscience to
machine learning and robotics. For further information see
