Perceptual Science Admissions

Graduate Study:

Most grad students in the group are enrolled in the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences (BCS). To apply to the department, go to the BCS Graduate Program Home Page or contact bcs-admissions@mit.edu.

Some students in the group come from other MIT departments such as Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. To apply for admissions to EECS contact the EECS Graduate Office.

BCS students are usually supported by a departmental training grant, which covers stipend plus tuition. Students from other departments, such as EECS, are supported as Research Assistants on faculty grants, or occasionally support themselves as Teaching Assistants.

Students in the group typically have "hard science" backgrounds, along with an interest in the problems of visual perception. Students come with bachelors degrees in many areas, including psychology, biology, mathematics, computer science, and physics.

Postdoctoral training:

There are various opportunities for postdoctoral training at the lab; what's available changes from time to time. Inquire directly to a professor at any time about the current possibilities.
