Computer Accounts

Brandeis accounts provide access to most if not all of the centralized computer services at Brandeis. You need one. Manage your account at identity.brandeis.edu/.

If you're paid by HHMI or have some other outside funding, you will need a courtesy appointment. Information about courtesy appointments can be found on the Office of Research Administration (ORA) website.

Some labs and departments have localized computational resources for specific purposes. Ask your labmates for more info. Contact the DivSci Technology Group if you need assistance.

See the instructions for using our VPN for off-campus access. Our library resources, including journal subscriptions, can be accessed from off-campus using the Brandeis Library One-Search.

Software for your computer

There are a few different software licensing programs. You may install Microsoft Office (and a few other MS products) on your computer. Matlab, EndNote and LabView are also site-licensed.

Getting more personalized computer help

The Technology Help Desk is the recommended entry point for postdocs looking for help from ITS. Note, you will not necessarily get complete or even correct answers about Division of Science-specific computer services from them, although they are very competent and helpful.
