PhD in Neural Circuits

Max Planck Institute for Brain Research
Campus Full time October 2017 Germany Frankfurt am Main

The common focus of the IMPRS for Neural Circuits will be the understanding of neural circuits (from the simple to the large and complex), at all scales required to achieve this understanding. [+]

PhD Degrees in Neuroscience in Europe 2017. The International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) for Neural Circuits offers up to ten positions every year for talented students holding a relevant MasterĀ“s or BachelorĀ“s degree to perform research resulting in a PhD. The program is taught in English. The common focus of the IMPRS for Neural Circuits will be the understanding of neural circuits (from the simple to the large and complex), at all scales required to achieve this understanding. This ambitious objective will require analyses at the molecular, cellular, multi-cellular, network and behavioral levels, with the full understanding that macroscopic phenomena (spatial patterns, dynamics) can be scale-dependent, and that reductionism is not always sufficient as a method. In the IMPRS for Neural Circuits we offer a multidisciplinary program to excellent doctoral students with backgrounds in neuroscience, mathematics, physics, computer science, (bio) chemistry, biology and medicine as well as research experience in the participating institutions of the Frankfurt Neuroscience community. Students will participate in a tailor-made educational program including research rotations and neuroscience courses but also in trainings in transferable skills as well as summer schools, lecture series and exchange programs with excellent research institutes abroad. The call for applications of the seventh round is now open. The deadline is December 15, 2016. For exciting PhD studies in the heart of Europe, please apply via www.imprs.brain.mpg.de [-]
