  • The second possibility is to enter one of the master course programs of the Graduate Training Centre of Neuroscience at the University Tübingen.
  • The last possibility is to work as research assistant. Therefore, the institute offers students from different scientific study areas the opportunity to assist in various research projects. Job offers can be found here.

Graduate School of Neural & Behavioural Sciences / International Max Planck Research School

The Graduate School of Neural & Behavioural Sciences, initiated jointly by the University of Tübingen and the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics, brings together areas, which are traditionally covered by biomedical research and by computer sciences.

As findings in modern neuroscience are expected to have significant impact beyond the framework of basic science particularly for medical fields, the Tübingen program addresses students who have completed a first degree in natural sciences, psychology or medicine. Major research activities of the neuroscience community in Tübingen include topcis of (human) cognition and behavior, as well as molecular mechanisms of developmental neuroscience, neurodegeneration and neuroregeneration. In addition, sensorimotor prostheses, retinal and cochlea implants are being developed.


There are several seminars, lectures and practical courses for students at the institute.
