PhD Position in Brain Modelling, University of Lübeck [Germany]

The Graduate School for Computing in Medicine and Life Sciences (http://www.gradschool.uni-luebeck.de/) at the University of Lübeck invites applications for a 3-year PhD scholarship. Application deadline: June 30, 2009.
Project description: Recent progress in brain imaging such as Diffusion Tensor Imaging allows for mapping pathways in the brain’s white matter with a resolution that would have seemed impossible only a few years ago. This progress can be applied to achieve more detailed and realistic modelling. The goal is to find new models for plasticity drawing from our experience in Organic Computing, self-organising neural networks and learning theory.

Requirements: Candidates are expected to have a master’s degree (or its equivalent) in computer science, mathematics or engineering. Prior experiences in scientific publishing (during the university study or industry employment) are of advantage. Please prepare all the necessary documents and submit your application online: http://www.gradschool.uni-luebeck.de/?q=node/20. For further information, send email to: management@gradschool.uni-luebeck.de or visit our website at http://www.gradschool.uni-luebeck.de/.
