CV Starr Fellowship in Neuroscience/Associate Research Scholar
The Princeton Neuroscience Institute aims to recruit several exceptional individuals for our CV Starr Fellowships in Neuroscience. These are individuals who are expecting or have recently obtained a PhD degree in neuroscience or areas relevant to neuroscience (molecular biology, psychology, computer science, engineering, physics, or mathematics). Please note that previous experience in neuroscience is not required. Appointments are made at the rank of Associate Research Scholar for one year, and are renewable for up to 3 years, with the possibility of a fourth year, subject to satisfactory performance. PhD is required at the time of appointment.
The PNI focuses on interdisciplinary research in neuroscience, spanning from molecular, cellular and genetic approaches to systems and human cognitive neuroscience. PNI houses state of the art facilities for experimental research in all of these areas, as well as advanced computational resources that support theoretical and quantitative approaches to neuroscience.
The CV Starr Fellowship program provides a generous salary and a modest annual research budget. Fellows are encouraged to pursue independent research with the guidance and mentorship of one or more core faculty members in the Institute. We are particularly interested in projects that bridge the research programs of multiple laboratories. Fellows also have the opportunity to teach in our Institute programs, subject to approval by the Dean of the Faculty.
