The Simons Collaboration on the Global Brain (SCGB) is pleased to announce a postdoctoral fellowship program to support work at the interface of theory and experiment on the nature, role and mechanisms of neural activity that produces cognition. Of particular interest is work that emphasizes the recording and perturbation of population neural data at cellular resolution, and the application of advanced statistical analysis and modeling to such data.

A request for applications will open and be announced in early November, and the deadline for applications varies by the Fellowship offered. Please click here for a list of open fellowships and their deadlines.

Candidates with a background in fields including neuroscience, mathematics, and the physical and information sciences are encouraged to apply. Candidates who hold, or will hold, a Ph.D., M.D. or equivalent degree at the time of activation of the fellowship are eligible. Applications may be submitted from scientists in domestic and foreign nonprofit organizations; public and private institutions, such as colleges, universities, hospitals, laboratories and units of state and local government; and eligible agencies of the federal government.

Appointments will be for three years, contingent on yearly review and performance satisfactory to the SCGB executive committee. Annual stipends of $60,000 will be awarded for the first year, with a cost-of-living increase in subsequent years. In addition to the stipend, awards will include an allowance of up to $15,000 annually for health insurance, supplies and travel.
