The Bonn International Graduate School of Neuroscience offers a top-level, internationally competitive training and research program for doctoral students in the rapidly developing field of neuroscience. Our three-year research program is focused on understanding the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying complex behavior, and the application of these insights to central nervous system disorders. The interdisciplinary graduate school is located at the University of Bonn in the center of a powerful research region and includes outstanding scientists from the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, the Faculty of Medicine, the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases in the Helmholtz Association and the Research Institute Caesar in the Max Planck Association. Thus, doctoral students in Bonn get the chance to work together with scientist from Germany´s most important organizations and be taught in modern methods of neuroscience research. We feel confident that besides the scientific education we offer, it is also important to provide the students an opportunity to train their ability in communicating their research results, to attend courses on career development and to become successful members of the Neuroscience community.
