I am happy to announce a new and exciting postdoctoral fellowship program that I designed and am helping to lead here at Yale. The Wu Tsai Postdoctoral Fellowships program seeks applications from soon-to-be or recent PhDs interested in interdisciplinary research at the frontiers of neuroscience. We are particularly interested in applications from scientists from backgrounds historically underrepresented in science and/or who have a demonstrated commitment to fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion.
The program offers a generous stipend ($60K starting) for up to 3 years, funds for training, cohort-based professional development and community-building activities, and access to cutting edge facilities in the new Wu Tsai Institute (WTI) at Yale, dedicated to integrative studies of the mind. International applicants are welcome.
Because this program seeks to promote best practices in inclusive recruitment and mentoring, the call features four co-mentored areas of research, carefully selected for the mentors’ outstanding interdisciplinary research and the labs’ inclusive and supportive training environments. If priority areas don’t fit your interests, you may also apply to an open track.
The deadline for applications is August 15. You can find more information and application instructions here: https://bit.ly/WTIPostdocFellows
Feel free to forward this information to anyone interested.
