Neuroscience GRADUATE Program
Neuroscience has reached an extraordinarily exciting stage. Disciplines such as physics, biology, genetics, chemistry, psychology, anatomy, computer science, medicine and engineering, to name a few, are now powering discoveries at a rapid pace that reveal the basis of how we learn, think, remember, love and dream. These discoveries provide hope to millions with brain disorders that better diagnoses and treatments are within reach.
The Stiles-Nicholson Brain Institute developed and oversees the interdisciplinary Neuroscience Graduate Program (NGP) that unites scientists, educators and students across multiple Colleges and Departments where neuroscience faculty pursue their research, as well as two internationally-recognized research institutes the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience and the Scripps Research Institute, into a one of a kind training opportunity for those in the early stages of their neuroscientific careers.
We are looking for bright, motivated students who have an inquisitive mind and a passion for neuroscience research. Work alongside world-renowned faculty who are utilizing novel techniques to perform cutting-edge research in cellular, molecular, and biomedical neuroscience; sensorimotor, cognitive, and behavioral neuroscience; and theoretical and computational neuroscience. At FAU we believe that celebrating and valuing diversity and inclusivity generates innovative education, inspired curricula, high-quality research, effectively problem-solving, and general creativity, by establishing an environment in which all students can achieve their potential.
