The department invites pre- and postdoctoral trainees to become part of its vibrant and collaborative atmosphere. We offer training in diverse areas of neuroscience and developmental biology. As part of a larger neuroscience community, trainees have access to state-of-the-art technologies and facilities as well as leaders in diverse fields that are located across campus. The department also has a wide range of research opportunities for undergraduates and medical students.


For more information on the Doctoral Program in Neurobiology and Anatomy see Prospective Students site.


The department fosters a strong training environment for postdoctoral scientists, as they learn and hone skills needed to transition to a career. By working closely with the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs, the department promotes strong trainee-mentor relationships and is supportive of trainees considering any number of career pathways.

Postdoctoral fellows are fully integrated into the department and afforded opportunities to participate in mentored research talks, lunches with invited speakers, journal clubs, and social activities within the department, and career development activities through the Life Sciences Postdoc Association.

Interested postdocs should directly contact their laboratory of interest. Stipend and health insurance is subject to negotiation with the advisor. Postdocs may also obtain financial support through competitive training grants.
