Apply for the Scholarships at the University of Amsterdam 2020. The deadline for the scholarship is 1st July 2020. The name of the scholarship is Ph.D. Positions in Cognitive Neuroscience and Computer Vision 2020. The scholarship is for Ph.D. degree in the field of Cognitive neuroscience, computer vision.

The University of Amsterdam is seeking 2 Ph.D. candidates having interests in the computations underlying visual perception in the human brain, who like to bridge research insights developed in neuroscience, artificial intelligence, and psychology. Additionally, the Ph.D. projects will involve working with computational models of vision, including deep neural networks, as well as collection and analysis of human neuroimaging data.

The following are examples of research questions to be addressed in the Ph.D. projects:

  • How does the human brain extract information about action affordances, such as the presence of a navigable path, from visually presented images?
  • What kind of representations are learned by deep neural networks trained on different types of scene processing tasks?
  • How can we use deep networks and/or other computational models of vision to better understand the neural activation patterns that we measure in the human brain during perception?


  • A Master‚Äôs degree in Neuroscience, Cognitive Neuroscience, Psychology, Computational Science, Artificial Intelligence, or a related field;
  • Additionally, a strong interest in computational modeling of perceptual processes;
  • Also, a strong interest in, and preferably existing experience with, human neuroimaging data collection and analysis (e.g., fMRI or EEG);
  • Likewise, a strong interest in computer vision and machine learning;
  • Furthermore, excellent programming skills, for example in Matlab, Python, or C/C++;
  • Similarly, solid mathematics foundations, especially statistics and linear algebra;
  • Also, a proactive and independent mindset;
  • Likewise, strong communication, presentation, and writing skills and an excellent command of English.

Value of Scholarship

  • Offers EUR 2,325 to EUR 2,972 gross per month.
