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, 2013. Further information can be found at our website:
