Seminars at Yale Neuroscience: Advanced PoStdoc Extramural Series

2023-2024 SYNAPSES

The Neuroscience Department and Kavli Institute for Neuroscience at Yale are pleased to announce the 2023-2024 SYNAPSES seminar series.

SYNAPSES (Seminars at Yale Neuroscience: Advanced PoStdoc Extramural Series) brings to Yale postdocs from around the world to share their latest work. Plans will be to hold in-person visits starting November 2023. During their in-person visit, selected speakers will present their research to the Yale Neuroscience Community, talk with faculty members in one-on-one meetings, and interact with Yale postdocs.

The Kavli Institute will cover the costs of travel and accommodation and will pay a small honorarium to all selected speakers (if eligible).

Deadline: The application period is now closed.

The Yale Neuroscience Department encompasses a broad spectrum of interests. This includes molecular, cellular, synaptic, systems, behavioral, cognitive, and computational approaches to understanding the nervous system. Thus, we encourage applications from postdocs in any area of neuroscience. Our Department is interested in showcasing a diverse group of scientists and we realize that the full potential of neuroscience research lies in the creative power that diverse perspectives bring to the field. Women and underrepresented minority postdocs are strongly encouraged to apply. International postdocs are also welcome to apply.
