[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

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 2012.
