The Berlin School of Mind and Brain is inviting interested graduate students to
apply for the three-year doctoral program at the interface between the
humanities and the neurosciences by January 15, 2011.
The Berlin School of Mind and Brain is an international research school,
located in the vibrant heart of Berlin. Research within the School focuses on the
interface between the humanities and the neurosciences. Of particular interest
are research areas that fall on the borders between the mind sciences (e.g.,
philosophy, linguistics, behavioral and cognitive science, economics), and the
brain sciences (e.g., neurophysiology, computational neuroscience, neurology,
and neurobiology). Major topics of research within the program include:
'conscious and unconscious perception', 'decision-making', 'language', 'brain
plasticity and lifespan ontogeny', 'mental disorders and brain dysfunction', and
the 'philosophy of mind'. However, research is not limited to these areas, and
students are strongly encouraged to develop and work at their own initiative on
any projects that are relevant to interdisciplinary questions relating to mind and
The School is situated in the center of Berlin, on the grounds of the Charité, the
largest medical campus in Europe. Each year the School accepts ten to fifteen
doctoral candidates into its program. Here are some excellent reasons why
students might wish to be considered for one of these highly sought after
positions at the Berlin School of Mind and Brain:
Research within the School is strongly embedded in the basic and clinical
research conducted within the region allowing for strong synergistic research
initiatives and opportunities. Hosted by the Humboldt University, the School's
research program includes scientists from the Free University, the Technical
University, the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience, the Max
Planck Institute for Human Development (Berlin), the Max Planck Institute for
Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences (Leipzig), and the nearby universities of
Potsdam and Magdeburg.
Students acquire a strong foundation for interdisciplinary work by attending
ten one-week classes during the first half of their doctoral program, which cover
all fields relevant for mind/brain-related research, and allow students to explore
research methods and topics that they have not been previously exposed to.
Each doctoral candidate is assigned two professorial advisors - one from the
brain sciences, one from the mind sciences.
Students meet with leading international researchers via the School's
Distinguished Lecture Series, interactions with its senior visiting faculty, as well
as by attending international workshops and meetings.
Extensive practical services to international doctoral candidates are available.
Finally, there are good financial reasons for studying at the Berlin School of
Mind and Brain:
There are no tuition fees associated with the program.
Administrative fees are very low. Administrative fees for attending the
Humboldt University come to only approximately 200 Euro per semester.
The School offers generous scholarships to the best applicants.
