Annual USC Neuroscience Community Retreat

Post-Doctoral Training in Neuroscience

Post-doctoral training is almost always an essential step for a research career in neuroscience. Each of our research groups host post-doctoral fellows, but the number varies greatly between labs. After fellowships with our faculty, fellows have launched their independent careers in academic (faculty), industry and government positions. Open post-doc positions are frequently advertised on various job postings, including the 'USC Jobs' database on the USC Human Resources web site. Anticipated post-doc positions are also posted below.

USC has a rich neuroscience community that spans across the university’s departments and centers. This network brings opportunities for collaboration, career advancement and professional networking. The USC Post-Doctoral Association provides further opportunties for career advancement and networking by hosting seminars and workshops. Grant opportunites are available through the Office of the Vice Provost for Research that are geared to advance the fellow towards an independent career.
