About

The Bernstein Center Freiburg (BCF) offers a multi-disciplinary, international PhD program in Computational Neuroscience of Brain Disease from University of Freiburg. 

Overview

PhD students from different backgrounds in natural sciences, mathematics, engineering sciences or computer science are provided with a thorough scientific and methodological basis in computational neuroscience and neurotechnology for an academic or application-oriented career.

Background

In November 2014, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) launched the project “IPID4all” (“International Promovieren in Deutschland - for all”). Through this program from University of Freiburg, universities get the opportunity to further develop existing and test new strategies for the internationalization of the PhD phase. It will allow bundling several specific measures to achieve this goal.

The program’s aims are twofold: Winning more excellent graduates from abroad for a PhD in Germany, and creating conditions for German graduates to prepare them for a future in an international environment inside or outside of academia. Within IPID4all’s funding scheme, the Bernstein Center Freiburg was successful with its application for the new PhD program BrainDisC (“International PhD program in Computational Neuroscience of Brain Disease”). It will be fully integrated into the center’s new focus on Computational Neuroscience of Brain Disease.

BrainDisC allows the BCF to recruit excellent graduates for PhD studies, and aid German and international PhD students to qualify for a career within an international environment. It further allows the BCF to continue the development, both in terms of content and administration, of its PhD program. This activity is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).

Other requirements

General requirements

  • Apply directly to one of our open positions in research projects of the BCF or directly contact one of the BCF members whose research you are interested in..
  • Join us by applying to the Spemann Graduate School of Biology & Medicine. Instructions on how to apply are detailed on the SGBM website.
  • Provide your own funding, e.g. through a DAAD fellowship, a scholarship from the Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes or from the Boehringer Ingelheim Fonds. For these fellowships you typically need to submit a research proposal together with a potential supervisor. Please check the websites of the [[BCF members]] to find out whose research interests you most. You should contact that person directly and ask whether he/she is willing to discuss a possible project with you, to supervise your PhD thesis, and to support your funding application.
