The Cognitive & Brain Sciences psychology program prepares students for employment in academic settings, research institutes and positions in the private sector. Our program has a strong research emphasis with a primary goal to educate scientists via the development of critical thinking, research competence, and theory construction and evaluation.
One measure of a program's success is found in the positions obtained by its graduates. Our program has enjoyed excellent success in positioning our PhD graduates; all of our recent PhD students have obtained academic or industrial employment or pursued post-doctoral training in nationally distinguished laboratories.
Recent doctoral graduate job placements include: Assistant Professor at University of Chili, Postdoctoral Researcher at University of Lusanne (Switzerland), Research Scientist at the Army Research Laboratory.
Review of applications will begin on January 3rd; later arriving applications will be considered on a space available basis
