Join an internationally renowned scientific community with the Hector FellowPhD program. PhD students benefit not only from the experience of the program, but also from the network of Hector Fellows.
  Self-organisation as a theory of brain development
  Dr SP Wilson, Dr JV Stone
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Self-organisation is a general theory of how function is assigned to cortical microcircuits. The theory predicts that a balance between cooperative and competitive interactions in local cortical circuits, consolidated by Hebbian learning, results in similar inputs being represented by nearby neurons.
  Towards a functional model for associate learning and memory formation
  Dr J Liu, Prof R Quian Quiroga
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to study the most up-to-date experimental data regarding single-neuron and network learning and coding in humans, with the expectation that a functional model could be established thereon.
  Neuronal Dynamics from a complex network perspective
  Prof A Politi, Dr E Ullner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human brain is possibly the most intriguing complex system we know. The combination of experimental work and theoretical approaches has gained many insides in the last century but we are still far away from a real understanding.
  The mathematics behind the smartness of neural networks
  Dr M S Baptista
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Intelligence is one of the pillars that allows animals to master their environment. Scientific approaches recently proposed have been capable of simulating networked systems that reproduce similar emergent manifestations of behavior as those observed in the brain.
  A 3D in vitro model of wound healing incorporating skin, nerves and immune cells
  Dr A M Rajnicek, Prof H M Wilson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diabetes, paralysis, being bed ridden and other conditions can result in chronic wounds that fail to heal, with significant personal consequences for patients and an annual cost of £4.5-5.1 billion annually (Guest et al., 2015) to the National Health Service.
  Movement-science inspired development of upper-limb prostheses for young children
  Dr S Watt, Dr K Valyear
Application Deadline: 1 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project rationale and description. Growing up without a hand poses unique and difficult challenges. Prosthesis provision for infants and young children is extremely limited, and the basic-science principles that inform how children learn to use prosthetic devices are largely unknown.
  Funded PhD studentship in Perception and Learning (NewSense project)
  Dr M Nardini
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A 3-year full-time PhD studentship is available at the Department of Psychology at Durham University, UK, to start in October 2020.
  Fully-Funded PhD Positions in Biology, Computer Science, Data Science & Scientific Computing, Mathematics, Neuroscience and Physics

Funding Type

PhD Type

 The Institute of Science and Technology Austria (IST Austria) is looking for highly qualified candidates with bachelor's or master's degrees to apply for the IST Austria PhD program.
  Biomedical research in a simple non-animal model
  Prof R S B Williams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in biomedical neuroscience generally employs mammalian tissue culture experiments to look at disease-related neuronal cell function.
  Interneuron Development in the Zebrafish Spinal Cord
  Dr K Lewis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Lewis Lab moved to Syracuse University from Cambridge University in the UK in 2010.
  Deciphering the neural code of the hippocampus
  Dr M Montemurro, Dr J Gigg
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The brain processes and stores information about our lives and the world that surrounds us. At the neural scale, information is encoded through the precise timing of activity across populations of neurons.
  Face identity recognition: Exploring the role of observer motion and motion of viewed person
  Dr K Lander, Dr P Warren
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability to identify people around us is crucial to our everyday lives, determining the nature of our social interactions and relationships.
  Infants’ early understanding of word meaning
  Dr A Ferry, Prof A Theakston
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

While children begin to say their first words around 12 months of age, there is evidence that they start to understand the meaning of common words much earlier in development, suggesting that infants have already started to build a vocabulary.
  Perceptual stability in Virtual Reality across the adult lifespan
  Dr P Warren, Dr R Champion
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

When we move, stationary parts of the world around us move on the retina. Of course, usually we correctly interpret this retinal motion as due to our own movement and not movement of the surrounding environment.
