Thank you to everyone who joined the Selection Symposium of the Einstein Center for Neurosciences Berlin (ECN) on April 12th/13th, 2018. We are very glad to have carefully chosen our new 15 Einstein PhD fellows!
Selected from a pool of nearly 400 applicants, we invited 37 candidates to the final symposium. Open to all students and community members, our candidates presented their scientific research proposal and have the opportunity to get in touch with the principal investigators. The symposium also aimed to enable the students to interact with other participants and potential collaborators in order to stimulate an exchange of ideas, suggestions and experiences.
Moreover, applicants had the chance to participate in a social program entailing a guided tour at the Berlin Museum of Medical History and a get-together with the first cohort of ECN PhD Students.
After the research presentation the reviewers interviewed each student. Based on the presentation and the interview candidates were selected for the ECN program. Selected candidates will start to join the program in autumn 2018.
ECN-Team welcomes the participants
The Einstein PhD Fellowship program will be continued with annual calls for applications in fall.
