Doctoral Program

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 (Sept 15 for Einstein Center for Neuroscience students)
Beginning of courses: October

Enrolled doctoral students will benefit of stuctured 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. The Research Training Group (GRK 1589 "Sensory Computation in Neural Systems") funded by the German Research Council (DFG) was based at the Technische Universit├Ąt Berlin and part of the BCCN Doctoral Program.
