Our Mission

 © Center for Behavioral Brain Sciences, OVGU Magdeburg, Foto: D. Mahler Abteilung Genetik, LIN MagdeburgThe aim of our CBBS neuroscience graduate program (CBBS GP) is to connect students from the Otto von Guericke University (OVGU), the Leibniz Institute for Neurobiology (LIN) and the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE). The CBBS graduate program is founded by the Center for Behavioral Brain Sciences CBBS, a central scientific institution of the Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg.

Currently, more than 150 PhD students, MD students and postdocs are already registered. Under the umbrella of the Otto von Guericke Graduate Academy (OVG-GA), the CBBS GP offers assistance on arrival in Magdeburg / Germany, helps to overcome bureaucratic hurdles and gives students a guide how to shape their own career. In addition, the CBBS GP organizes German courses in various formats and creates the basis for a scientific exchange thanks to the study groups offered. In addition to the calendar, which now includes all events taking place on the medical campus, the CBBS GP tries to give an overview of the research taking place on that campus with the new ring lecture. The CBBS GP provides information about national and international job offers, including the black board with job advertisements for students, PhDs, MDs and postdocs.
