Support Description: We are now accepting applications for the Erasmus Mundus Program 'International
Doctorate for Experimental Approaches to Language And Brain' (IDEALAB).
The PhD program has been established as an outstanding 3-year doctoral training
to its candidates with a primary focus on language acquisition and disorders
integrating interdisciplinary approaches.

For this purpose, four European universities (Potsdam (GER),Groningen (NL),
Newcastle- upon-Tyne (GB), Trento/Rovereto (IT)) and one non-European
university (Macquarie University Sydney (AU)) provide an intellectual environment
for original and independent research on experimental and clinical aspects of
language and the brain. Associated members from Research & Development
industries contribute in various ways to the program and stimulate an innovative
environment. They are potential co-supervisors and are involved in training.
Finally, there are seven clinics associated to the consortium, amongst others the
non-European rehabilitation center in Moscow which is the world's largest centre
for language disorders in the world. The associated clinics provide internships to
study unimpaired as well as impaired language of children and adults.

The program is jointly offered by a transnational consortium with an integrated
study program along with required mobility between the participating institutions.
The mobility plan of each individual young researcher is tailored according to the
particular specialities required by the thesis topic.

The application period ends on November 15, 2012. Further information can be
