This is about a PhD position to work in Potsdam with
Michael Rosenblum (http://www.stat.physik.uni-potsdam.de/~mros/) in physics
Ph.D. position in physics at the University of Potsdam, Germany, to be
filled as soon as possible.
The successful candidate shall possess a master's degree in physics
with specialization in complex systems/nonlinear dynamics and be
interested in interdisciplinary research.
The project implies cooperation between the Institut of Physics and
Astronomy of the University of Potsdam (where the student will be
enrolled) and neuroscientists and clinical researchers from Charité –
Universitätsmedizin Berlin. The project aims to develop advanced
techniques for neurostimulation used to treat Parkinson's disease.
>From the physics viewpoint, the research implies theoretical analysis
and modeling of the dynamics of large neuronal populations under
external stimulation. Exploiting the hypothesis that the pathological
brain rhythms emerge due to excessive synchrony within a neuronal
ensemble, we will develop feedback-based techniques to control these
rhythms. In cooperation with experimentalists from Charité, we will
try to translate these techniques into clinical practice.
The project is a part of a large cooperative study funded by the
German Research Foundation (DFG). The position is for four years; the
salary is 65% of the full researcher position (about 43K Brutto,
standard conditions for a Ph.D. position in Germany).
