The BCS department <http://www.sas.rochester.edu/bcs/> is one of the
leading places of research in Brain & Cognitive Sciences and at the center
of a vibrant and supportive scientific community. It has particularly
strong ties to the Center of Visual Science <https://www.cvs.rochester.edu>,
the Department for Neuroscience
<https://www.urmc.rochester.edu/neuroscience.aspx>, the Department for
Computer Science <https://www.cs.rochester.edu>, the Department for
Linguistics <http://www.sas.rochester.edu/lin/>, and the Data Science
Institute <https://www.sas.rochester.edu/dsc/>. PhD students with
interdisciplinary research programs are eligible for joint PhD degrees with
several departments.

Every admitted PhD student is guaranteed 5 years of funding at currently
~$31.5k/yr (currently equivalent to ~120% NIH rate) which affords a good
standard of living in an inexpensive city. We also provide a single plan UR
health insurance, full tuition scholarship, paid family leave, and enduring
NY State social protections. Both University and city are exceptionally
LGBTQIA+ friendly.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our
beloved program administrator Kathy Corser <kcorser at ur.rochester.edu> or to
any of our PIs directly.
