About Fully Funded PhD in Neuroscience 

The human brain has roughly as many neurons as there are stars in our galaxy, making it an enormously complex adaptive system. Making sense of this complexity increasingly requires neuroscientists who are both broadly trained critical and creative thinkers, and who have extensive analytic and computational skills.

The Interdepartmental Neuroscience graduate program at Brandeis comprises a comprehensive training program designed to give the next generation of outstanding neuroscientists the cognitive and technical skills they need to make important breakthroughs in understanding nervous system function and health.

Our program is characterized by a diverse and highly collaborative set of internationally renowned faculty, with research programs that incorporate all the major subdisciplines of the field.

Fully Funded Financial Support

The Neuroscience Program is supported in part through a number of competitive National Institutes of Health training grants.

Training grants have supported student research in traditional neuroscience, computational neuroscience, brain and behavior, molecular and cellular neuroscience, quantitative biology, and dynamical systems.

Students are guaranteed funding, including a stipend of $36,000 (beginning on July 1, 2022), full tuition, and health insurance while they are completing their studies and are maintaining satisfactory progress towards their degree.

Students in years 1-3 are typically funded by university fellowships or training grants, and in years 4+ by their individual lab.

PhD Application Requirements

Students are considered for admission based on their application as a whole, not simply on grades and test scores.

In addition to the student’s academic record (grades and coursework), admissions committees heavily weigh letters of recommendation, the extent and independence of previous work and research experience, and the individual’s statement of purpose.

The Neuroscience admissions committee will no longer be considering GRE scores in their admissions decisions.

Please do not submit them with your application; the graduate school will remove them if they are received.

Almost all international applicants must submit official test score results from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (the TOEFL iBT, TOEFL iBT Home Edition, and TOEFL iBT Paper Edition), the International English Language Testing System (IELTS Academic), the Pearson Test of English (PTE-Academic), or the Duolingo English Test.
