The Einstein Center for Neurosciences Berlin (ECN) invites applications for its PhD program. Students currently enrolled in a Bachelor’s or Master’s program and expecting to graduate before October 2020 are encouraged to apply.
The center was initiated to establish an umbrella structure that specifically fosters interdisciplinary, collaborative research by facilitating synergies between existing research groups and promoting interaction on all levels.
Einstein Training Program
- Initial boot camp for all students (crash courses in all relevant disciplines)
- Initial lab rotation period of 6 months
- Individual assessment to personalize core curriculum
- Continuing education program
- Supervision via PhD committees
- Encouragement and support for independence of excellent young scientists
- Student Fellowships
- Fellowships will start fall 2020
The Einstein Center for Neurosciences Berlin (ECN) in collaboration with its member institutions promotes cutting-edge neuroscientific research within a wide range of disciplines following different approaches. The ECN provides the umbrella structure that specifically fosters interdisciplinary, collaborative research by facilitating cooperation between these institutions, and by promoting interaction on all levels.
With around 100 internationally recognized research groups, the ECN offers outstanding interdisciplinary training and research opportunities for national and international scientists, with research spanning from synapse to behavior, molecule to disease, and brain to mind.
With annual calls for application, the ECN will finance a PhD research project for three years in the standard PhD program and an additional year during the Master´s phase in the fast-track PhD program. All selected PhD students have the opportunity to undertake small rotation projects (i.e. two month each) in different labs for a period of six months before the start of the research work to make an informed choice about their final PhD lab.
Deadline: 7 January 2020.
