Neuroscience Career Paths

career paths

An important part of graduate training focuses on career choice. The Neuroscience Program prepares trainees for careers in academic and pharmaceutical research, as well as related careers in education, science policy, intellectual property and technology transfer, grants management, publishing, and scientific writing.

To help trainees explore opportunities across the spectrum of career opportunities, the Program in conjunction with the Department of Neuroscience sponsors a seminar series that brings alumni and others who have a PhD in Neuroscience to our campus. Speakers present interactive talks and discuss the advantages and challenges of their chosen career path.
