In 2006, the School was founded with funding provided through the Excellence Initiative by the German Federal and State Governments to promote science and research at German universities. Since 2007, the three-year doctoral program of the Berlin School of Mind and Brain has been preparing junior scientist for this challenging interdisciplinary work and has received national and internal recognition for its achievements. In addition to the continuing education and training for doctoral candidates, in 2013 the School set up an interdisciplinary two-year Master’s program (M.A./Mind track and M.Sc./Brain track) and an innovative structured postdoctoral program with ample research and career development opportunities. Based at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, the graduate school plays an essential role in the close integration of university research in the greater Berlin area (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Freie Universität Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin and the universities of Potsdam, Leipzig, Magdeburg), clinical research (Charité University Medical School) and non-university research (Max Planck institutes in Berlin and Leipzig; Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine).
