  • Duration: 48 months


Description

The objective of NeuroTime is to provide PhD students with a top quality international training program in multidisciplinary neuroscience, that will contribute through the creation of a ‘European Higher Education Area’ in investigating a process lying at the heart of brain function & dysfunction : time processing. NeuroTime is a cooperation of: - Bernstein Center Freiburg at the University of Freiburg, Germany- University of Strasbourg, France- Netherlands Institute of Neuroscience, the Academic Medical Center of the University of Amsterdam, Netherlands - University of Basel & Friedrich Miescher Institute, Basel, Switzerland - The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Jerusalem, Israel- National Centre for Biological Sciences, Tata Institute of Fundamental Research-deemed University, Bangalore, India- Innovative Health Diagnostics (Strasbourg, France) Associated partner: Neurex, tri-national neuroscience network of the Upper Rhine Valley. The partners of the consortium have a well-established record of excellence and educational background, long-standing links with Industry and other educational institutes. The consortium has built a curriculum in a combination not found in any single European country or institution, integrating the complementary strengths of the different partners. The training provided by our program integrates developmental, molecular, cellular & behavioral neuroscience, chronobiology, computational neuroscience & neurotechnology. Each PhD candidate will perform a research project in collaboration between two or three partner institutions. The research project will lead to the award of a joint or double PhD degree. During the PhD period, each student has one main supervisor from each of the two (or 3) universities granting the PhD degree. Student mobility is an integral part of NeuroTime. The mobility periods, as well as the course curriculum, will be adjusted on an individual basis. The program is complemented with workshops organized by the Upper Rhine Valley network in Neuroscience, Neurex, which has well- documented experience in training. Complementary skills (ethical and legislative issues, grant writing, intellectual property, biosafety & scientific communication) are provided as well. The language of instruction is English. The Doctorate is designed to:

  • Provide excellent international training by combining the complementary areas of excellence of top institutions
  • Educate future leaders for international and European research;
  • Offer a unique European perspective on neuroscience, by studying in various European and non European countries;
  • Give excellent international employment opportunities.

The program is open to students with a Master (or equivalent) degree in biology or the natural sciences. The career prospects for graduates are outstanding as the courses are timely and relevant to today’s and tomorrow’s high technologies.
