The International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) on Neuroscience of
Communication: Function, Structure, and Plasticity is based at the Max
Planck Institute (MPI) for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences, Leipzig, and
the University of Leipzig (Germany). The IMPRS also involves the MPI for
Evolutionary Anthropology, Leipzig, and the Institute of Cognitive
Neuroscience at University College London, UK. The graduate programme will
start with the Summer Semester 2012 at the University of Leipzig (1 April,
The IMPRS on Neuroscience of Communication: Function, Structure, and
Plasticity offers a unique interdisciplinary graduate programme to study
the functional, structural, and plastic bases of human communication
through an integrative and interdisciplinary approach. Its overriding goal
is to train PhD students in multidisciplinary aspects involved in
communicative action. Besides behavioural work, the programme draws on
elaborate modern imaging techniques, including a 7-Tesla MRI scanner and a
306-channel MEG system.
The school invites applications for PhD scholarships.
