The University of Massachusetts - Boston

"The University of Massachusetts Boston is accepting applications for its PhD program in Developmental and Brain Sciences (DBS) . DBS is an intensive, developmentally-focused, research-based program - utilizing both human and animal models - with lab work ranging from cognitive development and psychophysics to neuroendocrinology and behavioral genetics.  We are the only Neuroscience PhD program at a public institution in the Boston area. Our program is particularly interested in receiving applications from students from groups that are underrepresented in the Neurosciences.

Our admissions deadline is December 15th, and students can apply on-line directly from our web page:  Review of applications will begin immediately and a full review can only be ensured if an application is received by December 15th. For more information, please contact Graduate Program Coordinator, Karyn Aiello (; 617-287-3276) or visit"
