Recruiting PhD students to start in Fall 2019

Interested in joining the BNBL as a PhD student beginning in Fall 2019? We are actively recruiting and welcoming applications. The most competitive candidates will have interests in neuroscience, psychology, engineering, biophysics, statistics or a related area as well as a strong quantitative background.

We would especially like to recruit students interested in modeling biological neural networks and to work on projects broadly aligned with the lab’s current research. However, we also encourage collaborations with other labs and institutions — see our publications list for examples.

We can accept students through several different areas, including the program in neuroscience, the cognitive science program, and the department of psychological and brain sciences.

If you have any questions about the lab or the application process, please contact us and we’ll be happy to clarify. If you’d like to learn more about the lab and would like to talk in person, Rick will be at the Society for Neuroscience meeting in San Diego from November 3-6.
