PhD-program in Complex Dynamical Systems – Cognitive System Theory
Institute of Theoretical Physics, University of Frankfurt am Main,
Field(s): cognitive systems, complex systems, neural networks, adaptive dynamical systems, theoretical neuroscience.

Application deadline: January 6, 2008
Contact: Prof. Claudius Gros

Address: Institute for Theoretical Physics,
J.W. Goethe University Frankfurt,
Job description:
Applications are invited for a PhD position,
with a BAT IIa/2 salary, equivalent to about
1000 Euro monthly.
Complex systems in the form of dynamical
gene-regulation networks constitute the basis
of all livings. On a higher level it constitutes
a central challenge to understand the brain and
to develop a comprehensive theory of artificial
cognitive systems in terms of structured dynamical
The field of research involves the development of
the Frankfurt Cognitive System Platform for an
autonomous general-purpose cognitive system based
on a meta-network of self-adapting generalized
neural networks.
The candidates should have a Diploma/Master in
natural sciences, cognitive sciences or informatics
with an excellent academic track record and good
computational skills. Experience or strong interest
in the fields of artificial or biological cognitive
systems are expected. The degree of scientific research
experience is expected to be on the level of a
German Diploma/Master.
The appointments will start in early 2008, for
up to three years.
Interested applicants should submit a curriculum vitae and
arrange for two letters of reference to be sent to the
address below.
