The International Max Planck Research School for Brain and Behavior is a collaboration of two partnerships on each side of the Atlantic: University of Bonn and Max Planck associated center of advanced european studies and research (caesar) in Germany on one side and Florida Atlantic University and Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience in the USA on the other. This transatlantic partnership maximizes the benefits for students in the program by having them directly involved in the outstanding research programs established at the two Max Planck Society run institutes and their partner universities.
The IMPRS for Brain & Behavior graduate school offers a structured, three-year multidisciplinary doctoral training and research program in the neurosciences. Overall our research programs address how sensory information is encoded in neural circuits and is transformed ultimately to behavior. Students are trained in a large range of cutting-edge techniques which are currently instrumental in the quest for understanding brain circuit function in the whole animal and its role in defining behavior. Our mission is to equip students graduating from this school with an exceptional level of knowledge and skills that will form the basis of a successful career in neuroscience.
IMPRS for Brain & Behavior aims to recruit highly qualified and motivated doctoral students from all nationalities and immerse them in a stimulating scientific culture of interaction and cooperation. Exceptional candidates holding a Master’s degree in biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, computer science, engineering, or other relevant subject are encouraged to join us.
