Society in Science Postdoctoral Fellowship

Society in Science – The Branco Weiss Fellowship is a unique postdoc program. It awards young researchers around the world with a generous personal research grant, giving them the freedom to work on whatever topic they choose anywhere in the world, for up to five years.  This research fellowship is designed to support postdoctoral researchers after their PhD and before their first faculty appointment. Those in current postdoctoral positions are also eligible. Ideally, fellows pursue unconventional projects in new areas of science, engineering and social sciences.  See for more information.

-The Simons Collaboration on the Global Brain (SCGB) seeks applicants for postdoctoral fellowships whose intended work is at the interface of theory and experiment on the nature, role and mechanisms of the neural activity that produces cognition.  Of particular interest is work that emphasizes the recording and perturbation of population neural data at cellular resolution and the application of advanced statistical analysis and modeling to such data.  Candidates with a background in fields including neuroscience, mathematics, and the physical and information sciences are encouraged to apply.  For more information on the SCGB program, please visit .  To access the application, visit
