The University of Massachusetts Boston is currently accepting applications for the PhD program in Developmental and Brain Sciences.

The Neuroscience specialization investigating neural and hormonal correlates of behavior. All DBS students receive rigorous core training in methods (dry and wet lab skills, advanced statistical methods) and work in labs using multiple levels of investigation including psychophysical and neuropsychological evaluation, brain imaging (EEG), and neuropharmacological, molecular/cellular, and genetic/epigenetic methods. Lab spaces for the program are now located in the newly constructed Integrated Sciences Building, part of our campus on the Columbia Point peninsula. This location is just a few miles south of downtown, neighbors metro Boston’s other world-class research universities, and offers wonderful views of the city and Boston Harbor. Applicants will likely have a BS and significant research experience. We especially encourage members of underrepresented populations in neuroscience to apply.

Full-time program only (4-5 years); students (both US citizens, DACA recipients, and international students) receive a stipend of $24,720 per academic year (September-May), and a waiver of the majority of tuition, fees, and cost of health insurance.

Review of applications will begin immediately and a full review can only be ensured if an application is received by December 15th.  For more information or to apply, please visit dbs.psych.umb.edu.
