Open PhD position
Complex Dynamical Systems / Computational Neurosciences

Applications are invited for a fully funded PhD position in the Lab of Claudius Gros at the Institute for Theoretical Physics, Frankfurt University, Germany.

We are developing new models and generative principles for complex systems, using a range of toolsets from dynamical systems theory, game theory, and the neurosciences. Examples are self-generated gaits for animals and robotic systems, criticality in autonomous networks, as well as investigations of the 'tragedy of the commons'. Several subjects are available for the announced PhD thesis, depending on the background of the successful candidate. The work will include analytical investigations and numerical simulations.

Fields: complex systems theory, physics of envy, computational neurosciences, game theory

The candidate must have a Diploma/Master in physics, an excellent academic track record and good computational skills. Experience or strong interest in the fields of complex systems, computational neurosciences, dynamical systems theory and/or artificial or biological cognitive systems is expected. The degree of scientific research experience needs to be on the level of a German Diploma/Master.

The appointment will start late 2022 / early 2023, for up to three years. Interested applicants must submit a curriculum vitae, a list of publications and copies of the academic record. Name, affiliation and email of one or more potential references are to be given.
