CBBS Research Groups


In order to introduce the neuroscientific location Magdeburg to young talent and to improve its international visibility, CBBS sponsors small workgroups and junior professorships.

Young research group leader positions are an extension of the Excellence Cluster and play an integrative role in connecting clinical and application-oriented research findings for the function of the healthy and diseased brain from human and animal trials.

Excellent postdoctoral applicants may apply for these positions to promote their career by obtaining the skills associated with building and leading their own workgroups.
