14 PhD students for Marie-Curie Integrative Doctoral Programme (IDP): HealthPAC

14 PhD student positions are available at the Donders Institute Brain, Cognition, and Behaviour at the Radboud University Nijmegen, The Netherlands, including three positions on auditory topics. See http://www.mbfys.ru.nl/~johnvo/HealthPAC.html and http://www.mbfys.ru.nl/~johnvo/HealthPACprojects.pdf for details on eligibility criteria, projects, and application requirements.

HealthPAC (Perception and Action in Health and Disease) is our Innovative Doctoral Programme (IDP) granted by the EU FP7 Marie-Curie programme to 12 top PI’s at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition, and Behaviour at the Radboud University Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

With the strong growth of the ageing population, sensory-motor loss and neurodegenerative disorders will affect an increasing number of citizens, which will have huge impact on our societies. HealthPAC is an integrated, international and interdisciplinary network of renowned perception-action (PAC) research labs, clinical departments, and industry. Its mission is to understand the neural mechanisms of sensory-motor control and its disorders, and utilize this knowledge to enhance the quality of life.


Our network trains early-stage researchers (ESRs) to become excellent PAC scientists who: (i) set up and perform high-quality research in sensory-motor neuroscience, (ii) can translate and apply their knowledge to clinics and rehabilitation centers, and (iii) understand the processes to develop innovative products that improve the quality of life in health and disease.


PhDs participate in research training programs, tailored to their individual interests, and are brought in intensive contact with European companies and institutes to improve and extend their future career prospects. The PAC team of the Donders Institute studies sensory-motor integration in an interdisciplinary setting with unique state-of-the art methodologies in research labs and clinical departments of 12 established neuroscientists.


Associate Partners contribute relevant knowledge from the private sector by teaching HealthPAC students about sensory-motor related product development, legal issues, management and marketing, and offer well-designed research secondments. Students are intensively mentored and prepared for their future careers, either as a PAC-scientist in an academic or clinical setting, or as innovative researcher in the private sector.


Required backgrounds: (cognitive) neuroscience, motor control, (cognitive, biological) psychology, (bio-)physics, sensory physiology, biomedical engineering, or related fields
