Einstein Center for Neurosciences Berlin - PhD Fellowships

The 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 yearly calls for application, the ECN will finance a PhD research project for 4 years. 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 the final PhD lab.
