Neuroscience students at Johns Hopkins University represent the brightest young scientific minds, and many have shown an early commitment to research. Because they enter our Program with different backgrounds, and the laboratories in which they choose to work are so diverse, our program is designed to be flexible. All doctoral candidates receive full tuition remission and a stipend for the duration of their studies. Currently, 177 doctoral candidates and 200 postdoctoral fellows work in the faculty laboratories, creating a diverse community that fosters development of novel approaches to answer complex questions.
Our curriculum spans the breadth of modern neuroscience, from molecular/cellular underpinnings to systems/cognitive integration, and offers a rich training experience that brings students to the forefront of research in their particular area of interest, in preparation for a rewarding, independent career in the sciences.
Core courses cover the basics of molecular and cellular neuroscience, neuroanatomy, and systems neuroscience. Electives and laboratory rotations provide students with specialized training, and the Department’s long-standing seminar series brings in weekly national and international luminaries, exposing students and fellows to the full spectrum of the world’s most exciting new discoveries in neuroscience.
