Ten doctoral positions at the International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) for Neural Circuits

  • 2015/01/15

[Deadline]

The International Max Planck Research School for Neural Circuits (IMPRS) was funded in 2011 and offers ten positions every year for excellent students holding a relevant Master´s or Bachelor´s degree to perform research resulting in a PhD. The program is taught in English. All positions are completely funded (by the school and/or participating Labs), either by a contract or a fellowship.

Field of work

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.

The offer

The IMPRS for Neural Circuits offers 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 (see website for participating Faculty members). Students will participate in a tailor-made educational program including research rotations and neuroscience classes but also in trainings in transferable skills.

Your application

Excellent Bachelor's or Master's Students with backgrounds in neuroscience, mathematics, physics, computer science, (bio) chemistry, biology and medicine, or related fields are welcome to apply to the program.

Applications will be accepted until January 15, 2015 for a position starting in autumn 2015.
