PhD position - RUB-China Scholarship Council (CSC) Optical Imaging Group


If you are curious as to how the brain builds memories, or modifies and forgets them; if you would like to know how the brain changes during aging, dementia, psychosis or in disease states related to immune, genetic or metabolic disorders, then RUB is the perfect place for you to conduct your PhD project.

Projects that we offer in this framework:

(1) Developing intracortical visual prostheses

(2) Manipulating brain dynamics through serotonin

The Institut für Neuroinformatik (INI) is a central research unit of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum. We aim to understand the fundamental principles through which organisms generate behavior and cognition while linked to their environments through sensory systems and while acting in those environments through effector systems. Inspired by our insights into such natural cognitive systems, we seek new solutions to problems of information processing in artificial cognitive systems. We draw from a variety of disciplines that include experimental approaches from psychology and neurophysiology as well as theoretical approaches from physics, mathematics, electrical engineering and applied computer science, in particular machine learning, artificial intelligence, and computer vision.
