The Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience, located in Berlin,
Germany, welcomes applications for the International Graduate Programs
in Computational Neuroscience.
Deadline: 15 March 2009.

The Bernstein Center offers a combined International Master and Doctoral Program in Computational Neuroscience with the goal of training young scientists that will be competent in both computational and experimental neuroscience and will be able to judge scope and limits of theoretical and empirical approaches.
The *Master Program* is articulated in two years. In the first year students are provided with basic experimental and theoretical techniques in the framework of four main subjects: Models of Neural Systems, Acquisition and Analysis of Neural Data, Machine Intelligence, and Models of Higher Brain Functions. The second year is research-oriented.
Through lab rotations the students are participate in research projects in laboratories affiliated with the Bernstein Center. Moreover, they attend lectures and conferences on advanced topics in order to gain a deeper insight into selected subjects, facilitating conception and development of their own research project, the foundation of their Master Thesis.
The *PhD Program* gathers doctoral students working on interdisciplinary projects jointly overseen by supervisors of complementary expertise. Experimentalists and theoreticians join forces to educate young scientists: to exploit the recent advances in machine learning, theoretical computer science, and statistics for modeling brain function, and to develop new theories of computation hand in hand with well-controlled experiments in order to put functional hypotheses to test. The doctoral students are integrated into Berlin’s collaborative teaching and research environment and the National Network for Computational Neuroscience, thus disposing of an excellent platform to connect to the international neuroscience community.
