Graduate Neuroscience Program Information

About the Program

Message from the Director: The doctoral neuroscience graduate program provides the opportunity to work with outstanding faculty members. The training program has the goal of enabling students to develop the research and communication skills, teaching experience, and dependence needed for future successes in their chosen career path. Training is personalized as much as possible to enable students to develop skills in areas that fit with their future plans. Research training is largely hands on. Students have access to a state-of-the art microscopy facility. Students interested in teaching have the opportunity to be primary instructors in classes. There are also opportunities for students to develop leadership skills. Past students have gone onto post-doctoral training programs, and also obtained faculty positions. We welcome inquiries from motivated and independent thinkers from diverse backgrounds who desire a career in the neurosciences.
