MNI Postdoctoral Advancement Program

Enhancing recruitment and training while building a community where neuroscience postdocs can thrive.


The MNI Postdoctoral Advancement Program will provide structure to build a community of neuroscience postdocs - offering social, professional, and networking opportunities. Further, MNI Postdoctoral Scholar recruits will become part of a peer cohort of trainees at a similar stage of their career. MNI’s current postdocs will serve as the backbone of this newly formed group, and we are excited to bring everyone together for the benefit of all.

The Program provides postdocs recruitment incentives, including a signing bonus and the opportunity to compete for and receive internal research funds.
