How to Apply

The NeuralCODR program was designed to fill a critical gap in post-graduate training by providing postdoctoral fellows with the support and training opportunities that come almost standard in graduate education. Specifically, the NeuralCODR program emphasizes the need for:

  1. Increased interdisciplinary training opportunities
  2. Increased mentorship and oversight beyond the host Principal Investigator
  3. Reducing the training period and emphasizing career choices early, and
  4. Stimulating and providing resources for postdoctoral fellows to interact with their peers.
