We invite applications for our fully funded PhD programme in
Informatics, University of Edinburgh, for a start in or around September

The studentships are ideal for students who want to apply their
computational and analytical skills to problems in neuroscience and
related fields. The following supervisors have openings:

Douglas Armstrong: Molecular neuroinformatics, network models,
behavioural models, molecular drug design.
Angus Chadwick (joining early 2020): Visual and spatial processing,
network dynamics, neural data analysis.
Matthias Hennig: Learning and homeostasis, analysis of large-scale
electrophysiological recordings.
Arno Onken: Probabilistic models, dimensionality reduction, information
Peggy Seriès: Bayesian approaches to cognition and perception,
computational psychiatry.
Ian Simpson: Regulatory genomics, developmental disorders.
Barbara Webb: Perceptual systems for the control of behaviour, robot
models of animals.

The PhD project can be done in collaboration with one of the many
affiliated departments and institutes. Edinburgh has been voted as 'best
place to live in Britain', and has many exciting cultural and student

Students with a strong background in either computer science,
mathematics, physics or engineering are particularly welcome to apply.
Motivated students with other backgrounds will also be considered.

For more information, see:

There is no fixed deadline, but applications completed by 29 Nov 2019
will be considered in a first round, with decisions expected by late
