NeuroCom: Call for applications

The International Max Planck Research School on Neuroscience of 
Communication: Function, Structure, and Plasticity (IMPRS NeuroCom) 
invites excellent students holding a master's degree (or equivalent) to 
pursue a PhD in the field of cognitive neuroscience and methods in 
cognitive neuroscience. The IMPRS NeuroCom is based at the Max Planck 
Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences, Leipzig, and Leipzig 
University. It also closely partners with the Max Planck Institute for 
Evolutionary Anthropology, Leipzig, and the Institute of Cognitive 
Neuroscience at University College London, UK.
Deadline for applications is 15 November 2020. Interviews will take 
place in January 2021. Start date is flexible, but not later than autumn

The IMPRS NeuroCom aims to recruit and educate motivated, independent, 
self-organised and highly talented scientists who wish to extend their 
knowledge and research experience in a structured 3-year PhD programme 
in order to pursue a successful career in cognitive neuroscience, 
clinical neuroscience, neurophysics, or other methods in cognitive 
neuroscience. Students are expected to hold 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 master’s degree should have been awarded by an 
internationally recognised university. Students nearing completion of 
their master’s degree are also encouraged 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. 
It includes access to state-of-the-art cognitive and imaging 
neuroscience facilities, e.g. 7T MRI scanner, four 3T MRI scanners 
including a Connectom MRI scanner equipped with ultra- strong gradients 
(one of only four worldwide), a 306 channel MEG system, several TMS, 
TDCS, NIRS, and EEG systems.

Research projects and teaching at IMPRS NeuroCom are assigned to four 
thematic modules (Language and Communication, Cognitive and Affective 
Neuroscience, Basic and Clinical Neuroscience, and Neuroimaging Physics 
and Signal Processing). Our faculty is very interdisciplinary and 
comprises more than 30 highly- renowned researchers from our 
participating research organisations performing high-end research 
related to one of the four modules.

Applications will be evaluated by the IMPRS NeuroCom faculty members in 
two stages. Firstly, candidates will be selected for interviews based on 
their written applications, with a focus on academic qualifications, 
personal references, research experience and interests, and suitability 
to the programme. Secondly, interviews with the IMPRS NeuroCom faculty 
members will take place in January 2021.

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 
individuals. Salary is based on the guidelines of the German public 
sector pay scale (TVöD).

With almost 600,000 inhabitants, Leipzig is the largest city in the 
federal state of Saxony. In more than 800 years of recorded history, 
Leipzig emerged as a city of classical music, trade fairs, academic 
education, and —recently—modern arts. With its many parks, forests, 
canals and lakes, Leipzig is a perfect place for recreation, sports, and 
leisure time, and it offers plenty of opportunities for social life. 
Only recently Leipzig was listed by the New York Times as one of the 52 
places to go in 2020.
