PhD positions Cognitive Neuroscience Lab / Sensorimotor Group / Decision and Awareness Group - German Primate Center


The Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory of Prof. Stefan Treue, the Sensorimotor Group
(SMG) of Dr. Alexander Gail and the Decision and Awareness Group (DAG) of Igor
Kagan at the German Primate Center (DPZ) in Göttingen, Germany, invite applications
for several open and fully funded PhD positions. (www.dpz.eu/index.php?id=157&L=1)

Research in our laboratories focuses on the neural basis of higher sensory and motor
functions. We focus on extracellular recordings from primate cortex and human
psychophysics, but also use functional imaging and computational neural modeling
(www.dpz.eu/index.php?id=91, www.dpz.eu/smg and www.dpz.eu/dag)

As part of the Center for System Neuroscience (CSN) and the Bernstein Center for
Computational Neuroscience (BCCN) we offer a stimulating, multi-disciplinary research
environment with a strong background in both, experimental and computational
neuroscience. Students can choose among multiple PhD programs of the Goettingen
Graduate School for Neurosciences and Molecular Biosciences (GGNB).

We look for highly motivated students with a strong interest in system neuroscience. A
degree in neuroscience, physics, engineering, biology, psychology, or related fields is
required. Experience in programming is of significant advantage.

Applications should include a cover letter, short CV, list of publications, university
certificates, and names (incl. contact info) of 2-3 possible references. Please send your
application to application-cnl@dpz.eu (preferably as PDF document).

The German Primate Center is an equal opportunity employer.
