Princeton University

The Graduate Program in Neuroscience at Princeton University offers a unique and intensive program of study spanning molecular, cellular, systems and cognitive neuroscience, followed by advanced research in a world-class Princeton laboratory. We seek highly motivated and creative students to join us in our efforts to understand the brain.

A listing of faculty affiliated with the program can be found online at http://pni.princeton.edu/faculty-research/faculty-research-summary, and below. Our doctoral program is flexible and individually-tailored, and we encourage students to pursue research with more than one faculty and across departmental boundaries.

Applications for entry in the Fall of 2017 are now being accepted, with a deadline of November 27 (note that this is earlier than usual). For details, including contact information, please visit www.princeton.edu/neuroscienceApplicants from Puerto Rico or the U.S. Virgin Islands who have questions about their ability to meet all admission requirements by the deadline should reach out to gs@princeton.edu. Applicants experiencing financial hardship can apply for a waiver of the application fee.
