Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience
Berlin, Germany
The Bernstein Center Berlin solicits applications for an international PhD program in Computational Neuroscience (
The PhD program is full-time for three years, and will start in October 2007. Course language is English. There are no tuition fees and the program offers a limited number of scholarships of up to € 1800,- per month initially for two years. The doctoral degree is awarded by the department of the student’s principal thesis advisor. Successful candidates additionally receive a certificate from the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience including a transcript of records.

Application deadline is March 15th 2007 for full consideration. Applications received after the deadline can however be considered until the admission process is completed. Courses start in October 2007. For application details see:
Objective of the PhD Program
Computational neuroscience uses a multidisciplinary approach for understanding the brain. It combines experiments with data analysis and computer simulations on the basis of well-defined theoretical concepts and makes a scientific language available that can be used across disciplines and levels for neurobiology, cognitive science, and information technology. Computational Neuroscience may thus help to solve long-standing research questions, contribute to better prevention and treatment strategies for neural disorders, lead to unified concepts about biological processes, advance information technologies and human-machine interactions, and, last but not least, provide new insight for designing efficient strategies for teaching and learning.
The PhD program emphasizes a broad, interdisciplinary education with strong interactions between experiment and theory. The programs’ faculty is drawn from the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience, which represents university departments ranging from biology and medicine to physics and computer science at the three major universities in Berlin, i.e. Humboldt Universität zu Berlin, Berlin Technical University, Freie Universität Berlin, as well as Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin.
