Speculative Applications

The institute encourage speculative applications from students, graduate students, and postdocs interested in particular areas of research performed in the institute. These applicants should contact the respective director/group leader directly [more]


The Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics organizes a series of weekly scientific lectures. These presentations are held in English and take place in the auditorium of the Max-Planck House. External guests are very welcome to attend.Opens internal link in current window [more]

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.
