Potential graduate students are encouraged to apply to this multi-university research consortium, whose goal is to investigate the neural bases of attention in both human and non-human brains.
Our NSF EPSCoR Grant #1632738 funds graduate students at each of our 4 institutions. The positions are shared among 14 faculty members at Dartmouth College, Brown University, Montana State University, and the University of Nevada at Reno. Through these shared positions, we look forward to fostering collaborations among our institutions, labs, and the broader communities in our four states.
The incoming graduate students will form a cohort over their four or five years of PhD training, and will benefit from exciting collaborative and career-building opportunities, including spending time in other faculty members' labs, having co-mentors across institutions, interacting with industry and educational outreach efforts, and having regular virtual and in-person meetings across institutions.
Applicants should apply through the normal graduate school channels of any of the universities (links provided below), but should indicate in their personal statement that they are interested in participating in this consortium of researchers focused on the neural basis of attention. Potential graduate students are encouraged to contact individual faculty members with whom they might want to work.
