The aim of the master’s course is research-oriented training that deepens and expands the scientific competencies and skills acquired in the field of molecular and cellular neurosciences as part of a bachelor’s course in a life science course. The degree program offers laboratory-oriented training that ranges from aspects of basic research to clinical laboratory research. In the course of their studies, through increasingly independent work in the participating research institutions, the students should acquire the ability to apply their knowledge to new issues independently in the subsequent professional life or in the subsequent doctoral phase.


The range of subjects includes neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, neurobiochemistry and neuropharmacology and is primarily focused on molecular and cellular aspects of neuroscience.


Although the future professional field for graduates of the master’s program in Molecular and Cellular Neurosciences has yet to emerge, the following fields of activity are conceivable: 

  • Participation in basic scientific research in biological and biomedical disciplines at university institutes, Max Planck institutes and large federal research institutions
  • Applied research and development in drug development in the pharmaceutical industry or in biotech companies
  • Participation in clinical research projects in laboratories of university clinics, or other activities in clinical facilities with a molecular and cellular focus
  • Activities in the fields of bioinformatics
  • Forensic tasks



Completion of a relevant bachelor's degree in the field of life sciences, the 2nd state examination in pharmacy or a comparable bachelor's degree at a German or foreign university
