The Massachusetts Institute of Technology has a rich and long-standing tradition of research as an integral part of education and training. With its world-class faculty and cutting edge research, the Picower Center for Learning and Memory offers unique opportunities in neuroscience for postdoctoral staff to serve as integral members of research teams. Participating in frontier research, they develop problem-solving skills that enhance their flexibility, patience, and creativity.
The postdoctoral years are considered an integral part of the training required to become a neuroscientist. Postdoctoral opportunities abound in PCLM on sponsored research projects and through independent fellowship support. Prospective postdocs are encouraged to contact individual PCLM faculty about the possibilities of working in their laboratories. Postdoctoral staff receive appointments in the Picower Center for Learning and Memory.
