Joint Doctorate projects in Erasmus Mundus program for Neurosciences
The Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctoral Program "ENC-Network" (European Neuroscience Campus Network) is inviting applications from students having a solid background in neurosciences, biological psychology or medicine (on a master level or equivalent) with a strong affinity for studying brain diseases. 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. Both motivation, recommendation and study-results (top 10% scores) are important criteria for admission.
The ENC-Network is a new partner organization of Neuroscience Centers in Europe with the aim to organize research collaborations, aline grant acquisition strategies and create exchange opportunities at all levels of education and professional work. Partner-home institutes were selected on the basis of their outstanding publication records and ability to integrate different disciplines traditionally already being embedded in the various PhD programs of the respective institutes.
The partner-institutes in the ENC-Network are:
- Neuroscience Campus Amsterdam
- Bordeaux Neuroscience Institute
- European Neuroscience Institute Göttingen
- Neuroscience Center Zürich
- Center for Neuroscience and Cell Biology (University of Coimbra)
Selection procedure is pending. New PhD projects will be available on the
website www.enc-network.eu around May/June 2011.
