Dear neuroinf-people,

my name is Daniela Pelz, I am the coordinator of the MSc and PhD Program 
in Computational Neuroscience at the Bernstein Center for Computational 
Neuroscience Berlin. We are currently recruiting students for our 
graduate programs and therefore I would like to ask you to post the 
following text.

Thanks a lot!


International Master of Science or PhD
in Computational Neuroscience

Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience

Berlin, Germany

The Berlin University of Technology, the Charité Medical School and the
Humboldt University of Berlin solicit applications for an international 
Master and PhD program in Computational Neuroscience within the 
Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience Berlin 

The Master program is full-time for four semesters, the PhD program is 
full-time for three years. Course language is English. There are no 
tuition fees. Application deadline for both programs is March 15, 2008. 
Courses start in October 2008.

The Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience Berlin comprises 24 
research groups working on a single cell level up to a macroscopic 
level, both experimentally and theoretically. It offers a unique 
scientific environment to the students within the program.

The master progam is unique within Germany, offering students the 
opportunity to work early on in their career in a cutting edge 
interdisciplinary research field. Teaching staff includes the four newly 
appointed young Bernstein professors. The program currently offers 10 
places with an excellent teacher to student ratio and a sense of 
familiarity among students. The Master’s degree is jointly awarded by 
the Technische Universität Berlin and the Humboldt Universität zu 
Berlin. Teaching and Training follow a ‘one day, one location’ principle.

The PhD program offers students to do research one of the Center’s 24 
research groups of the center giving them a broad choice of topics and 
methods. At the same time they are embedded in a scientific network 
where they regularly meet international scientists from their field of 
research. Furthermore, they have the opportunity to build up a network 
of their own with PhD students form other neuroscience programs within 
Berlin and within the Germany-wide National Network for Computational 

All students who are interested in neuroscience and have a strong 
mathematical background are welcome to apply. In accordance with the 
interdisciplinary nature of Computational Neuroscience the program 
encourages students form diverse disciplines such as natural sciences, 
engineering, or mathematics to apply.
