Integrated Master & PhD Training in Neuroscience

What makes the PhD program at the Graduate School of Systemic Neurosciences (GSN-LMU) so attractive?

  • Interdisciplinarity: flexible degree structure and broad exposure to various research fields and projects;
  • Internationality: 61% of students come from abroad and thrive in the international environment;
  • Integrated Teaching Concept with comprehensive scientific training and ECTS-based grading;
  • Tradition and Excellence under the umbrella of LMU Munich and the Munich Center for Neurosciences (MCN-LMU).

The scientific environment at the GSN-LMU operates in one of the neuroscience hot-spots worldwide, offering excellent cutting-edge research opportunities. The structure of the GSN-LMU doctoral program combines seminars and coursework, based on individual backgrounds and research goals. As such, GSN-LMU students are encouraged to make suggestions of special method training workshops or leading scientists they would like to invite for seminars and discussions.

Fast-track PhD program

GSN-LMU offers the opportunity for especially qualified applicants holding a relevant bachelor's degree to directly enter the PhD program. During the first two semesters of the Fast-Track program (Preparatory Year), students receive basic training in neuroscience, which is in close collaboration with the GSN-LMU associated Master programs “Neurosciences” and “Neurocognitive Psychology”.

In their Preparatory Year, Fast-Track PhD students can choose courses along either a Systemic-Cellular-Molecular Neuroscience focus or a Computational Neuroscience focus. Regardless of the selected focus, all students will also complete coursework within the other area, however, at a more moderate level.

Applicants for the GSN-LMU PhD program must hold an MSc or equivalent degree in biology, psychology, medicine, physics or related fields.

Application start: December 1st, 2019
Deadline for applications: February 15th, 2020
