Molekulare und Zelluläre Neurowissenschaften / Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience (Master of Science)
Program: Molekulare und Zelluläre Neurowissenschaften / Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience
Degree: Master of Science (M.Sc.)
Program length: 2 years / 4 semesters (120 ECTS points)
The objective of the master's program is a research-oriented education that enriches and expands the scientific expertise and skills in the field of molecular and cellular neurosciences acquired during a bachelor's program in the life sciences. The program provides a laboratory-oriented education that ranges from aspects of basic research to clinical laboratory research. Through increasingly independent work in the participating research facilities over the course of the program, students acquire the capability to apply their knowledge to their subsequent professional life or to new questions in a subsequent doctorate phase.
The range of subjects includes Neuroanatomy, Neurophysiology, Neurobiochemistry and Neuropharmacology, and particularly focuses on molecular and cellular aspects of the neurosciences.
Although the future professional field for graduates of the Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience master's program must still emerge, the following fields of work are conceivable:
- Collaboration in scientific basic research in biological and biomedical disciplines at university institutes, Max Planck Institutes and major research institutions of the Federal Government.
- Applied research and development in medication development in the pharmaceutical industry or with biotech firms
- Cooperation in clinical research projects in laboratories of university hospitals, or other work in clinical facilities with molecular and cellular alignment
- Work in the fields of Bioinformatics
- Responsibilities in the field of Forensics
