Prior to formal admission at the Medical University of Vienna, your first step is to find a thesis supervisor from the list of participating faculty listed in the program description. Alternatively, if your preferred supervisor is not listed here, after request you can nominate another neuroscience lab in Vienna. All theses are part of peer-reviewed, funded research projects.
As it is not possible to enter the “Neuroscience programme” without a research position, it is absolutely necessary to find the research position you are most interested in among the participating research laboratories.The availability of research positions is rapidly changing and evolving. Some of the currently available positions e.g. those at the Center for Brain Research, Medical University of Vienna, can be found on their homepage. Even if there is no currently listed research position available within the research unit you are interested in, it is beneficial to contact the head of the respective research unit to register your interest and discuss future opportunities. Only highly motivated applicants will be able to enter the program.
