Postdoctoral Training

The NINDS-sponsored training grant program “Quantitative Neuroscience: From Genes to Behavior” at Brandeis seeks exceptional recent PhD graduates to apply for postdoctoral fellowships. Fellows will work in one of twenty-five participating laboratories. This program is designed to enhance the quantitative skills of a diverse group of investigators involved in solving the problems posed by myriad disorders of the nervous system. To understand neurological disorders and develop new therapies a cadre of outstanding investigators with strong quantitative skills working in research intensive academic institutions, in industry, and in other capacities, is required.

All trainees participate in seminars, journal clubs, and will obtain mentoring experience, as a way to facilitate a highly collaborative research experience. Trainees can take advantage of the rich Greater Boston neuroscience community.

Brandeis University is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer and encourages minorities, women, disabled individuals, and eligible veterans to apply. US citizenship or permanent residency is required for fellowship support through this program.

Interested candidates should contact one of the faculty members to open a dialog about potential research projects.
