How to Apply

You are invited to join a multidisciplinary postdoctoral training program focused on brain disorders and neuronal development. Training is conducted in the areas of developmental neurobiology, genetics, molecular biology, cellular neurophysiology and imaging, and disorders of the developing nervous system. The goal is to train young scientists with M.D. and/or Ph.D. degrees in the state-of-the-art research techniques. Further details about specific areas of training are provided in the Mentor page. The research interests of current and former trainees are also available for you to review in the Trainees page.

Minorities are especially encouraged to apply, and an applicant must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident.

Potential applicants should contact one or more members of our training faculty to gauge their interest in having you join their lab.  The mentor can explain the application process. Applications are accepted in Fall (mid-September) and Spring (mid-March).
