PNI invites applications for available faculty positions. The 248,000 square foot PNI building houses state-of-the-art computing resources for modeling and data analysis, as well as for the full range of neuroscientific methods, including human brain imaging, cellular and circuit level imaging and recording in animal model systems.


PNI has research positions available at the postdoctoral or more senior research levels in the areas of neuroscience, psychology, molecular biology, biochemistry, physics, computer science, and genetics. An initial appointment is for one year with the possibility of renewal, based on satisfactory performance and continued funding.


Graduate Students

How do millions of individual neurons work together to give rise to behavior at the level of a whole organism? How do our brains work? Training researchers to answer these fundamental, unanswered questions is the goal of PNI's graduate program. The core course in the neuroscience Ph.D. program is designed to give students a solid, hands-on experience in advanced neuroscience before they specialize in their research. 


Every day is a new opportunity to find purpose in your work—from our beautiful grounds and remarkable buildings to our research labs and cultural facilities. Whether you’re already part of our community or just getting to know us for the first time, we invite you to imagine the meaningful difference you can make while working at Princeton.

Undergraduate Summer Interns

PNI offers a summer internship program for highly motivated visiting undergraduates who are interested in pursuing a graduate degree in neuroscience or a related field. PNI provides education and hands-on research experience and participants collaborate closely with students and faculty at PNI on original research projects and gain invaluable first-hand experience on what it is like to be a neuroscientist. Visiting student applicants must be current undergraduates who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents, as required by the NSF funding.
