Medical Neuroscience” is one of the five Research Clusters at the Medical University of
Vienna. It is the explicit goal of this call to integrate 16 outstanding researchers working in the
field of neuroscience in many different institutes / departments / clinics in this program. The research focus of the project of this call are all aimed at elucidating crucial molecular
mechanisms of nervous system function in health and disease, with the long term goal to
develop novel therapeutic strategies. The research projects (as described in:
https://www.meduniwien.ac.at/hp/phd-neuroscience/), are at various stages of this endeavour;
some are at the stage of basic research to first understand the functional complexity in health,
while other projects already directly target possible treatment strategies. The translational
nature of the program is reflected manifold as for example including discussion of patents in
the Journal Clubs.
In order to be eligible to enrol in the MedUniv Vienna PhD program “Medical Neuroscience” all
candidates are required to have a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in medicine, biology,
