Neuroinformatics combines neuroscience and informatics research to develop and
apply computational tools and approaches that are essential for understanding
the structure and function of the brain.
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.
If you are interested, go to the webpage: www.kth.se/eurospin
Deadline for Application (both EU and non-EU students): 30 Nov 2011.

go to http://www.incf.org/.
The four partrners below participate. They are all research leaders in the
Neuroinformatics field, but they have complementary strengths. In addition, two
associated partners, the Honda Research Institute and Nordita, participate.
Four partners participate in EuroSPIN:
– KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden
– University of Edinburgh (UoE), UK
– National Centre for Biological Science (NCBS), India
– Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg (ALUF), Germany
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.
