Call for applications: transatlantic student/postdoc/staff exchanges

Dear all,

The Erasmus Mundus training network in Auditory Cognitive Neuroscience is accepting applications for student and staff exchanges between the EU and North-America. Please see below for details. In a nutshell, the program gives attractive monthly stipends and travel funds to send students, postdocs, and PIs to a member lab across the Atlantic. We are unlikely to fill all exchange spots with students from the member labs, and encourage applications from students, post doctoral fellows, and staff members working in auditory neuroscience at universities or institutes in one of the participating countries: Germany, UK, France, Finland, Canada, and the USA.

Program website with application forms and guidelines:

Call for applications: Six to ten month mobility fellowships in Auditory Cognitive Neuroscience (deadline: June 15th, 2011)

Description: The ERASMUS MUNDUS ACN training network is recruiting graduate students and postdocs working in the field of Auditory Cognitive Neuroscience to participate in transatlantic exchanges between the member universities and institutions.

Stipends: Awards include a monthly stipend of 1500 EUR (doctoral level), 1800 EUR (postdoctoral level), or 2500 EUR (PIs and staff), and a one?time lump sum of 2000 EUR for travel expenses.

Eligibility: Ph.D. students, post?docs and staff members at all partner institutions are eligible to apply. Applications from students at any other institution of higher education in the partner countries (Germany, UK, France, Finland, Canada, USA) will be accepted as well, but priority is given to applications from within the network. Students are expected to conduct research with a PI at a member institution.

Duration: Student fellowships are awarded for 6?10 months at one of the partner locations across the Atlantic. Travel may begin as early as July 1st 2011, but must begin before December 31st 2011. The total time of the exchange may be divided into two or more trips, if the project clearly requires this (the travel lump?sum is only awarded once). Staff fellowships are awarded from 1?3 months. Staff applications are accepted at any time.

Guidelines: Please examine carefully the research interests of the participating scientists. Detailed descriptions of research opportunities can be found at their websites (listed on ?Participating Scientists? page). We strongly recommend that applicants first contact the prospective supervisors via email to discuss possible research projects. Complete the application form (Download on ?Apply for a Grant?) and obtain the signature of your current and the proposed supervisor on this application. In addition, applicants must arrange to have recommendation letters submitted by the current and the proposed supervisor. A curriculum vita should also be sent with the application package. Applications are to be sent to acn@uni?leipzig.de by June 15th, 2011. Awards announcements are expected to be made within three weeks.
