Our program is devoted to
The Phd Program in Neuroscience is designed as a course of study consisting of both basic and clinical neuroscience. Students are exposed to recent theories about brain function and up-to-date research strategies. They acquire the technical skills of planning, conducting and evaluating complex experiments and clinical studies. Participation in the program forms a cornerstone in the training of young researchers interested in pursuing a career in academic, clinical and biotechnological environments.
Neuroscience Doctoral Programs
The PhD Program in Neuroscience is associated with two excellence graduate school funded by the Austrian Science fund: SPIN - Signal Processing in Neurons
and CavX - Calcium channels in excitable cells
SPIN - Signal Processing in Neurons
The SPIN doctoral school is a joined program set up by the Medical University of Innsbruck and the University of Innsbruck. It was established in September 2007 with the support of the Austrian Science Fund (FWF).

CavX - Calcium channels in excitable cells
In the CavX PhD program we combine the worldwide unique research focus on Cavs in Innsbruck with an excellent doctoral training in Neuroscience. To this end CavX builds on the excellent scientific and methodological expertise of the steadily growing Cav faculty in Innsbruck, which consist of a lively mixture of experienced and newly established research groups (Campiglio, Flucher, Koschak, Obermair, Striessnig, Tuluc). CavX comprises projects on the structure-function relationships, specialized functions in vision and in hormone secretion, synaptic modulation and connectivity in brain disorders, as well as skeletal muscle function.
We are currently hiring new PhD students.
Please refer to the call for detailed information on projects, requirements, and application procedures.
