Center for complex systems & brain sciences, Florida Atlantic University.
Applications are currently being accepted for interdisciplinary
PhD training under the joint mentorship of Drs. Steven Bressler and Viktor Jirsa. The program of training will take a theoretical approach to the study of neural and cognitive function.

The position will focus on understanding the connectivity and dynamics of large-scale brain networks. It will emphasize:
* the construction of artificial brain networks based on known anatomical connectivity
* the generation of simulated network time-series data
* functional connectivity and causality analysis of simulated time-series data in relation to the analysis of LFP, MEG, and fMRI time-series data
The program offers competitive, multi-year stipends and tuition remission. Long-term research and training visits (up to six months) in partner institutions in France are optional and encouraged.
The ideal candidate should have the following qualifications:
* Quantitative training in physics, mathematics, computer science, or related fields
* Programming experience (Matlab, C/C++, .)
* English speaking and writing skills
Previous experience in neuroscience is not required but would be an advantage.
Interested students are encouraged to submit a CV, contact details of two referees, and a short statement of research interests to either Dr. Bressler ( or Dr. Jirsa (
