PhD Positions - IMPRS for Neural Circuits

Neurocom

The International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) for Neural Circuits was established in 2011 and offers around ten fully-paid positions every year for talented students holding a relevant Master´s or Bachelor´s as their highest degree to perform research resulting in a PhD. The program is taught in English.

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 retreats, conferences and summer schools and lecture series. A special fast track option is offered to students with a Bachelor’s as their highest degree.

The common focus of the the International Max Planck Research School (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.

Research areas are perception, connectomics, theoretical neuroscience, synaptic plasticity, molecular systems, brain dynamics, neural circuits, behavior and systems neuroscience. IMPRS Faculty are 20 Frankfurt neuroscientists from Max Planck Institute for Brain Research, Goethe University, Ernst Strüngmann Institute for Neuroscience and Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies.
