Your Career at the HIH

Young academics for the neurosciences


Understanding the brain and healing its diseases – this is the mission of the Hertie Institute for Clinical Brain Research (HIH). From basic to applied research, our work has the ultimate goal of benefitting patients. One unique feature of the HIH as a research institution is its close connection to the Department of Neurology at the University Hospital Tübingen. As a result, new findings from the laboratories find their way quickly into diagnosis, treatment and prevention. Every single day our staff is motivated by the opportunity to do research that benefits society.

The HIH is strongly committed to promoting its young academics. Its five departments cover the entire spectrum of clinical neurosciences. There, young scientists find excellent opportunities to specialize and undergo training following their personal interests. At the HIH, physicians and neuroscientists work hand in hand and profit from an array of clinical, scientific and general training options. For both groups the HIH is a stepping stone to a successful career in clinical neurosciences. Via its alumni network the HIH has contacts to leading research institutes around the world.
