The Princeton Neuroscience Institute (PNI) focuses on interdisciplinary research in neuroscience, spanning from molecular, cellular, and genetic approaches to systems and human cognitive neuroscience. PNI houses state of the art facilities for experimental research in all of these areas, as well as advanced computational resources that support theoretical and quantitative approaches to neuroscience.
 
Each year, PNI recruits exceptional individuals for our CV Starr Fellowship in Neuroscience. Fellows are encouraged to pursue independent research with the guidance and mentorship of one or more core faculty members in the Institute. We are particularly interested in projects that bridge the research programs of multiple laboratories. Fellows receive a generous salary and a modest annual research budget and also have the opportunity to teach in our Institute programs, subject to approval by the Dean of the Faculty.
