[Comp-neuro] PhD positions in Computational Neuroscience

The Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctoral Program "EuroSPIN" (European
Study Programme in Neuroinformatics) is inviting applications from
students having a solid background in mathematics, physics,
computer sciences, biochemistry or neuroscience (on a master level
or equivalent), in all cases with computer science skills.
Documented interest in research like activities (e.g. demonstrated
in the form of master thesis work, or participation in research
related activities) is of large importance. Also fluency in English
is requested.

Four partners participate:

- Bernstein Center Freiburg, Germany
- KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden
- National Centre for Biological Science, India
- University of Edinburgh (UoE), UK

They are all research leaders in the Neuroinformatics field, but
they have complementary strengths.

Each student will spend most of the time at two of the partner
universities, and also receive a joint (or double) PhD degree
following a successful completion of the studies. The mobility
periods, as well as the courses a student will follow, are tailored
individually based on: a) the PhD students background; b) which
constellations of partners that are involved, as well as c) the
specific research project. During the PhD period each student has
one main supervisor from each of the two universities that grant
the PhD degree.

There are excellent scholarship opportunities for students accepted
to an Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate programme. An employment
contract will be given to all selected PhD students during the
study time, which is 4 years.

Deadline for Application (both EU and non-EU students): 30 Nov
