The Marie Curie Research Training Network FLiACT will start on the 1 st of January 2012 and will run for four years, supported by the European Commission. This initiative will host 12 Ph.D. students.
The long-term scientific goal of FLiACT is to understand how the brain processes information and controls behaviour. Focusing on one genetic model organism, the fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster), the FLiACT fellows will seek to elucidate how neural circuit computation directs stereotypical behaviours and how circuit-function relationships are genetically encoded.
Research will be conducted in 8 European academic laboratories and 3 private companies with different expertise in systems neuroscience. Through personalized projects, visitor exchanges and workshops, the fellows will receive theoretical and practical training in disciplines ranging from molecular and behavioural neurogenetics, electrophysiology and bioengineering. The fellows will benefit from career mentoring from the FLiACT community to increase their prospects in both the academic and the private sectors.
Each FLiACT fellows will be offered a highly competitive salary in addition to travel and mobility allowances. Fellows will enrol in the international Ph.D. programme of the host institute or the local university.
The FLiACT is an equal opportunity initiative committed to promote gender balance in science.
Applications from non-EU members are welcome. Citizens and long-term residents of European countries may not be eligible to apply in the institution of their home country (see www.fliact.eu).
