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.


Four partners participate:


- Bernstein Center Freiburg, Germany

- KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden

- National Centre for Biological Science, India

- University of Edinburgh (UoE), UK


They are all research leaders in the Neuroinformatics field, but they have
complementary strengths.


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


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.
