  • Doctoral Studentship

    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 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.
