NeuroCure PhD Fellowships

Until 2016, NeuroCure offered PhD fellowships to outstanding PhD candidates in close cooperation with the International Graduate Program Medical Neurosciences. Selected candidates had the opportunity to join up to three NeuroCure labs during a six-month rotational period before they decided in which lab to pursue their PhD thesis.

Consistent with the Medical Neurosciences program, the PhD featured an interdisciplinary approach to neurosciences, linking basic and clinical brain research.

PhD fellowships formerly offered by NeuroCure are now awarded by the Einstein Center for Neurosciences Berlin (ECN).

To harmonize the many existing graduate training programs in Berlin, NeuroCure, in cooperation with the Berlin School of Mind and Brain, the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience Berlin, and the Center for Stroke Research Berlin, successfully applied for funding for an Einstein Center through the Einstein Foundation.

The Einstein Center for Neurosciences Berlin now provides PhD scholarships through a competitive selection procedure. The first cohort started in fall 2017.
