Postdoctoral Researchers

We are always interested to hear from potential postdoctoral candidates who have a strong interest in quantitative approaches to neuroscience. Postdoctoral researchers will have opportunities to play an integral role in collaboration between our theoretical lab and experimental labs at Yale and elsewhere. Please send Dr. Murray an email with a curriculum vitae and a brief description of research interests. Potential applicants can apply for Swartz Fellowships through the Swartz Center for Theoretical Neuroscience at Yale.

Graduate Students

We are interested in graduate students who wish to pursue Ph.D. research in Computational Neuroscience, an interdisciplinary field that studies the brain through quantitative and mathematical approaches. We typically accept one graduate student every year. Students will have opportunities to play an integral role in collaboration between our theoretical lab and experimental labs at Yale and elsewhere. We also have opportunities for rotation PhD students each semester. For prospective graduate students, potential Ph.D. programs at Yale include the Interdepartmental Neuroscience Program (INP) and the Integrated Graduate Program in Physical and Engineering Biology (PEB). We are also interested in students from a range of disciplines and departments, including Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science, Engineering, Biology, and Neuroscience. Please contact Dr. Murray by email.

Undergraduate Students

We have limited space for undergraduate students at Yale to do research in the lab (e.g., Senior Projects, PHYS 471/472, etc.). As we are a computational lab, some programming experience is required. Please contact Dr. Murray by email.

Unfortunately we do not have openings for undergraduates from outside Yale, such as for summer internships.

High school students

Unfortunately we do not have the manpower to accept and train high school students.
