PhD student open positions:

new openings! application deadline: March 15, 2016 for a position starting in October 2016

7 PhD fellowships (GRK 1589/1) are available in the Research training group “Sensory Computation in Neural Systems”. The Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience (BCCN) Berlin invites applications for fellowships of its new graduate school “Sensory Computations in Neural Systems” (GRK 1589/1). The scientific program of the research training group “Sensory Computation in Neural Systems” is focused on sensory coding and perception. The fellowships of approximately 1500 €/month will be granted for up to three years.
Potential projects involve computational and robotic models to test hypotheses on e.g. task- and knowledge dependent decision making, imitation learning, behaviour recognition, mirror systems, sensorimotor interaction and learning, internal simulations.

Please contact me with a concrete research proposal if you are interested. You need to have a background in Computer Science / AI / Robotics / Computational Neuroscience.
