International Master of Science or PhD in Computational Neuroscience
Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience, Berlin, Germany

The Berlin University of Technology, the Charité Medical School and the Humboldt University of Berlin solicit applications for an international Master and PhD program in Computational Neuroscience within the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience Berlin (
The Master program is full-time for four semesters, the PhD program is full-time for three years. Course language is English. There are no tuition fees. Application deadline for both programs is March 15, 2008. Courses start in October 2008.
The Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience Berlin comprises 24 research groups working on a single cell level up to a macroscopic level, both experimentally and theoretically. It offers a unique scientific environment to the students within the program.
The master progam is unique within Germany, offering students the opportunity to work early on in their career in a cutting edge interdisciplinary research field. Teaching staff includes the four newly appointed young Bernstein professors. The program currently offers 10 places with an excellent teacher to student ratio and a sense of familiarity among students. The Master’s degree is jointly awarded by the Technische Universität Berlin and the Humboldt Universität zu Berlin. Teaching and Training follow a ‘one day, one location’ principle.
The PhD program offers students to do research one of the Center’s 24 research groups of the center giving them a broad choice of topics and methods. At the same time they are embedded in a scientific network where they regularly meet international scientists from their field of research. Furthermore, they have the opportunity to build up a network of their own with PhD students form other neuroscience programs within Berlin and within the Germany-wide National Network for Computational Neuroscience.
All students who are interested in neuroscience and have a strong mathematical background are welcome to apply. In accordance with the interdisciplinary nature of Computational Neuroscience the program encourages students form diverse disciplines such as natural sciences, engineering, or mathematics to apply.
