Potential PhD position for Indian student

bjoern.brembs.blog : a neuroscientist's blog 2013-03-16

Almost every week I receive inquiries from students all over the world for PhD positions. Unfortunately, I have to decline most of them, as all the positions I have are immediately filled. Now, however, there is an opportunity for Indian students to pursue a PhD in our lab. The DAAD is offering Indian students full three-year scholarships for a German PhD (Dr. rer. nat.). This means that we can offer all the lab and office space, equipment, consumables and other infrastructure for a three-year research project, supervised by myself, Björn Brembs at the University of Regensburg, while the salary of the candidate is subject to the application process of the DAAD. Therefore, I invite any Indian student interested in neurobiology and about to obtain their Master's degree (i.e., this year) to contact me. The email should be sent to bjoern@brembs.net on or before March 31, 2013 and contain a full CV, including courses taken and their respective grades, as well as a one-page research proposal, referencing one or more of our recent (2008-present) publications as a single PDF document. In April 2013, I will select one to three candidates from the pool of applicants to develop their research proposal into a full-fledged DAAD PhD scholarship application, to submit by October 1, 2013. This invitation can also be downloaded in PDF format for further distribuition.
