View Full Version : Doctoral Studentship

10-18-2005, 10:56 AM
The chair in Theoretical Biology at the Ruhr-University Bochum is
seeking applications for doctoral studentships in the areas of
theoretical cognitive science and theoretical neuroscience. Our
research program is centered on embodied and situated cognition and is
based on the theoretical framework of Dynamical Systems Theory, of
which Dynamical Field Theory is a particular branch that emphasizes the
neuronal foundations of these concepts. Doctoral students will select a
research topic within three areas: (a) serial order; (b) learning
theory; (c) multi-degree of freedom motor control. All projects will
have a core modeling component, around which new theoretical ideas will
be developed, but will also involve close collaboration with associated
experimental research groups.

Additional background information is available at

The positions will be paid at the BATIIa/2 level (approximately 1800
Euro/month depending on age and family status).

Applications including curriculum vitae and transcripts, as well,
whenever possible, the name of one or more references are welcome.
Application via email to Institut@neuroinformatik.ruhr-uni-bochum.de is
encouraged. Alternatively send your material to Prof. Dr. Gregor
Schöner, Institut für Neuroinformatik, Ruhr-Universität Bochum, 44780
Bochum, Germany.

The selection process will begin November 1, 2005 and will continue
until the positions are filled.
