Applications are invited for fully funded PhD Position for international researchers at the International Max Planck Research School. Researcher will work on the research project “Collective Animal Behaviour”. To apply for this position, applicants should hold a MSc or equivalent degree in biology or a related discipline at the point of enrollment. The application deadline is January 15, 2015.. Understanding collective action in biological processes is a central challenge, essential for achieving progress in a variety of fields ranging from the organization and evolution of neural decision-making circuits, to the coordinated communication among cells, or animals, to the dynamics of information exchange among sophisticated organisms, and the emergence of complex societies. Consequently the study of collective behavior naturally spans scales, from how neural circuits control individual behavior, to the analogous issue of determining the structure and function of the communication network among organisms that gives rise to emergent group, and population-level, behavior. Insights and paradigms from the study of collective behavior help reveal unifying principles, as well as important differences, across scales of biological organization.. This position is available for pursuing PhD degree level at the International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS). The research areas of this scholarship are:
