Computational models for diagnosis & intervention techniques in neurological disorders

Supervisor: Dr. Erik Fagerholm

Consultant: prof. Milan Brázdil, M.D., Ph.D., FRCP

We are excited to announce a unique PhD opportunity at Masaryk University within the First Department of Neurology. This cross-disciplinary project bridges the fields of computing and medicine, focusing on the development of ground-breaking tools for neuroimaging time series analysis in the diagnosis and intervention of neurological disorders. As a candidate, you will work closely with both the Department of Medicine, as well as with existing collaborations in the Department of Mathematics, to create novel theoretical, computational, and experimental procedures to quantify ways in which neural systems process information — and importantly, how these are impaired in disease states.

As a PhD candidate, you will:

Funding of the research: stipend to be provided by the Faculty of Medicine and the 1st Department of Neurology

Information on funding PGS positions: stipend to be provided by the Faculty of Medicine and the 1st Department of Neurology

Requirements for the student according to the Board for the PhD studies in Neurosciences at MU

Eligibility criteria for the student:

- Master's or equivalent degree in neuroscience related to the topic

- Passing the introductory interview in English about the dissertation topic

- English language at least at B2 level according to the Common European Framework of Reference

- Willingness to participate in international cooperation


As part of the PhD studies:

- Fulfilling the requirements of an individual study plan

- Completion of courses required in the Neuroscience program, specialization in Neuroscience

- Publication activity - at least 3 impacted publications, of which 1 original and at least 2 first authorships

- Completion of a foreign internship of at least 1 month

- Cooperation on international projects
