I have an open fully funded PhD position in computational neuroscience in my laboratory at the Italian Institute of Technology in Trento. Stipend, tuition fees and research expenses of the successful candidate will be fully covered by the Italian Institute of Technology. The topic of investigation is how neuronal populations encode and exchange sensory information.
The successful candidate will begin the PhD in November 2014 and will be registered with the Doctoral Programme at the University of Trento (ranked 1st in Italy according to the Times Higher Education). All PhD courses are given in English, and the working language of the research institute is English.
The selection requires a Master level degree (Laurea Magistrale or equivalent), a certifiable B2 level of English (or BA/BS/MA/MSc done entirely in English), and a proposed research project. There are no constraints on nationality for the applicants.
The deadline for applications is Tuesday May 13, 2014 at 4:00 p.m Italian Time.
Please visit the Doctoral Programme's website http://www.unitn.it/en/drcimec/10140/admission-doctoral-school-cognitive-and-brain-sciences
for information pertaining to the timeline of the application process and for a link to the actual online application.
Note that the candidates will have to apply for the topic "computational neuroscience" (see http://www.unitn.it/en/drcimec/32957/30th-cycle-topics-2014-call) and submit with application a brief summary of the proposed research project applicants will submit. This brief document should be intended as a description of the candidate's research interests within computational neuroscience rather than a detailed research project.
Interested candidates are strongly encouraged to write to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) as soon as possible attaching their CV to discuss the application further. However, applications will be formally considered only if submitted through the above official link of the University of Trento PhD selection programme.
