International Doctoral Program Computational Neuroscience

The International Doctoral Program Computational Neuroscience at the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience (BCCN) Berlin was founded in 2007 as a cooperation between Technische Universität, Humboldt Universität, Freie Universität and Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin. The cross-institutional structure aims to educate a new generation of scientists trained in both mathematical/computational and neuroscientific methods. This will provide a scientific language for the study of the brain and its dysfunctions that can be used across disciplines and levels in neurobiology, cognitive science, and information technology. With the support of the Einstein Foundation Doctoral Program, the BCCN Berlin also aims to recruit more qualified doctoral students from the global South and to support the doctoral students in their individual career planning.
