***Call for applications

The International Max Planck Research School on Neuroscience of 
Communication: Function, Structure, and Plasticity (IMPRS NeuroCom) 
offers several positions for excellent students holding a master's 
degree (or equivalent) to perform research resulting in a PhD in the 
field of Cognitive Neuroscience and Neurophysics. The IMPRS NeuroCom is 
based at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain 
Sciences, Leipzig and Leipzig University and also involves the Max 
Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Leipzig, and the 
Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience at the University College London, UK.

****Deadline for applications is 10 November 2019. Interviews will take 
place in January 2020. Starting date is flexible, but not later than 
autumn 2020.

The IMPRS NeuroCom aims to recruit and educate motivated, independent, 
self-organized young scientists who wish to extend their knowledge and 
research experience in a structured 3-year PhD program, in order to 
pursue a successful career in cognitive neuroscience, clinical 
neuroscience, or neurophysics. The school is intended for students 
holding an excellent master's degree (or equivalent) in a wide spectrum 
of potential disciplines such as cognitive neuroscience, psychology, 
medicine, neurobiology, linguistics, computer science, engineering, 
mathematics, physics, biochemistry, or related fields. The university 
degree should be awarded by an internationally recognized 
university-level institution. Students near the completion of their 
master’s degree are also eligible to apply. Research experience in an 
area that is related to the graduate school’s scope is essential for 
successful candidates. Proficiency in oral and written English is 

The IMPRS NeuroCom offers its doctoral students outstanding research 
opportunities in a very international and multidisciplinary environment 
with access to state-of-the-art cognitive and imaging neuroscience 
equipment, e.g. 7T MRI scanner, four 3T MRI scanners including a 
“connectome scanner” equipped with ultrastrong gradients (one of only 
three world-wide), a 306 channels MEG system, several TMS, TDCS, NIRS, 
and EEG systems.

Applications will be evaluated by IMPRS NeuroCom faculty members. 
Interview selection is based on academic qualifications, personal 
references, research experience and interests, and suitability to the 
program. The Max Planck Society is an equal opportunity employer and is 
committed to increasing the number of individuals with disabilities in 
its workforce and therefore encourages applications from such qualified 

Payment is based on the guidelines of German public service pay scale 
(TVöD). For more information about our graduate school please visit:
