The Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute is deeply committed to cultivating the next generation of neuroscientists through our graduate fellowships and interdisciplinary scholar awards for postdocs.
Through everything we do, we are bringing together brilliant people from diverse disciplines to tackle the unanswered questions in neuroscience.
Our training programs
Postdoctoral Scholar Awards
The Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute Postdoctoral Scholar Awards provide funding to extraordinary postdoctoral scientists at Stanford University engaging in neuroscience research that advances our understanding of the mind and brain in health and disease.
Interdisciplinary Graduate Fellowships
Stanford Interdisciplinary Graduate Fellowships affiliated with Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute provide current graduate students, whose research interests are in the interdisciplinary neurosciences, with three years of funding support.
MBCT Membership Program
The Center for Mind, Brain, Computation and Technology’s Student Membership Program believes that contemporary neuroscience research requires the integration of experimental and technical methods. We support young scientists from empirical, technical, or theoretical backgrounds as they stretch beyond their primary discipline to learn complimentary approaches from another field, advancing their research and developing them into leaders and innovators in neuroscience.
NeuroTech Training Program
The NeuroTech graduate training program immerses PhD students from technical departments into neuroscience. The trainees bringing emerging technologies to advance neuroscience discovery and human health.
Pathways to Neurosciences
The Pathways to Neurosciences progam serves late-stage graduate students and early-stage postdoctoral fellows who identify as being from an underrepresented group in neuroscience, with the aim of fostering belonging, excellence, and leadership.
Undergraduate Summer Research
The Neuroscience Undergraduate Research Opportunity (NeURO) and (NeURO-CC) fellowship program immerses Stanford undergraduates and local community college students into the world of neuroscience research. Fellows will learn research skills, explore neuroscience topics and conduct summer neuroscience research in a Stanford lab.
