Doctoral Program (Einstein Foundation Doctoral Program from 2022-2025)

The International Doctoral Program at the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience Berlin (BCCN Berlin) is an interdisciplinary research program. Neuroscience is one of the most intensively developing and important sciences of the 21st century. Understanding the functioning of the brain requires the collaborative efforts of neurobiologists, neuropsychologists, cognitive scientists, medical researchers, computer scientists, mathematicians, physicists and engineers. Students who have completed the Doctoral Program will have the ability to communicate across these diverse disciplines which will help them to make their own contribution to the fast growing field of neuroscience.  

Application deadlines: March 15
Beginning of courses: October

Enrolled doctoral students will benefit of structured supervision through the Faculty of the BCCN Berlin and a specific qualification program, including the lectures for Doctoral and Master students and a broad range of courses teaching transferable skills.

Our doctoral program is funded by the Einstein Foundation (fall 2022 - summer 2025), as an Einstein Foundation Doctoral Program. The enrolled students can profit from travel grants for conferences and workshops, lab visits abroad etc. We are very grateful for this funding that will enable us to further develop our program and implement new ideas.
