Career levels at the CSB
CSB integrates life science and medicine. We strive to remove the artificial division between life scientists working in basic science and physicians working in a clinical context. Basic scientists professionalize medical research and clinician researchers working at the bedside carry clinically relevant questions to the lab (bed to benchside). The CSB is open to life scientists who can qualify, for example as a Master in Medical Neuroscience and then continue with a PhD in a CSB-relevant research project. Leading a basic science group (professorship title) is also open to non-physicians, opening attractive career options in medicine for life scientists.
Master Program Cerebrovascular Medicine
The program aims to provide comprehensive training to young healthcare professionals in all relevant aspects of stroke research and stroke medicine.
The CSB is open to life scientists who can qualify, for example as a Master in Medical Neuroscience. The rigorous and comprehensive Master program provides a structured education in basic neuroscience to medical students and trains students of the life sciences in medical topics and approaches concerning the central and peripheral nervous system.
The PhD program places a high emphasis on scientific excellence, provides a multidisciplinary research and learning environment and offers extensive supervision and tutoring allowing students to complete their projects within 3 years. The CSB provides funding for PhD students with a stroke oriented project.
The CSB provides targeted opportunities for young scientists. Junior scientists following their doctoral degree (typically in the first years of specialist training) can apply for the Hans Gerhard Creutzfeldt scholarship. Currently two Creutzfeldt Scholarships have been provided.
Junior and Senior-Research-Groups
Scientific success thrives on innovative ideas and brilliant brains: excellence and
sustainability of the CSB therefore depend on the research groups under the leadership of CSB professors and young group leaders. The CSB appointed the best international scientists and clinicans for these positions.
