Faculty

The SMARTSTART core faculty is responsible for organizing and running the program. They are supported by the associated faculty at the respective institutions who agreed to participate in the teaching of the SMARTSTART program.

Members of the faculty can be mentors for SMARTSTART participants during the 12-month program. They advice and guide students in the selection of their courses to complement their previous studies and extend their scientific skills. For SMARTSTART 2, at least one mentor has to be SMARTSTART faculty member.

Members of the SMARTSTART faculty are from various institutions in Germany and represent many aspects of research fields within computational neuroscience:
