Graduate Programs

We aim at fostering a new generation of scientists who have been trained in both mathematical / computational skills and neuroscientific methodologies. Therefore, the Bernstein Center Berlin has set up two international, interdisciplinary graduate programs:

→ Master Program
→ Doctoral Program


Interested in studying computational neuroscience in our master program or in our PhD/doctoral program? Deadline for application March 15, 2021.

More information about the programs and the application procedure here.


Talks of the BCCN Berlin lecture series are now available on the Vimeo Channel of the Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience.



The Bernstein Center Berlin was founded in 2004 and addresses one of the most challenging questions in computational and cognitive neuroscience:

“How is it possible that we can react to sensory stimuli with millisecond precision if intermediate processing elements – on the level of single synapses, single neurons, small networks and even large neural systems – vary significantly in their response to the same repeated stimulus?”
