Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
NEW POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP Opportunities at the McGovern Institute for Brain Research at MIT. This initiative is to support scholars from populations underrepresented in neuroscience (e.g., African Americans, Indigenous or Native Americans, Pacific Islanders, Hispanics or Latinos, and those with disabilities or from disadvantaged backgrounds). We are part of broader strategic plans at MIT to recruit and support scientists from groups underrepresented in STEM fields.
Our cross-disciplinary and collaborative faculty create and apply cutting-edge techniques to better understand the mind in health and disease, with a preclinical eye to developing new treatments for autism, schizophrenia, drug addiction, Huntington’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and other neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders.
We invite applications from soon-to-be or recent PhD graduates who seek to pursue careers in neuroscience based in computational biology, cognitive science, psychology, molecular and cellular biology, physiology, biological engineering, or a related field.
This is a 2-year fellowship opportunity, with the possibility of extension, with the stipend for a starting Postdoctoral Fellow currently at $58,608 (based on the year 4 NIH rate). Postdoctoral Fellows at MIT are also eligible for the following benefits https://hr.mit.edu/eligibility-postdoctoral-fellows.
