Behavioral Neuroscience Ph.D. Program

Member logins have been temporarily disabled as we move to a new website. All will be well by 2/10/2020.

The Behavioral Neuroscience program area within the Department of Psychology at West Virginia University is recruiting graduate students for our Ph.D. program.

Students typically enter under a single mentor, and complete a research-based master's thesis on the way to the Ph.D. Faculty within the program perform research at the intersection of neural injuries, cognition, and addiction in both humans and animals. The BN program faculty are also cross-affiliated into the Rockefeller Neuroscience Institute, which has more than 50 faculty studying various aspects of neuroscience and opens up funding opportunities via T32 grants (research fellowships) and other perks.

Applications are due December 1st.

WVU is located in the affordable, outdoor-oriented city of Morgantown, approximately 1 hour south of Pittsburgh and 3.5 hours west of Washington, DC.

More information can be found at the following address and on personal faculty pages:

Members from the program (Vonder Haar lab) will be at the FUN poster session if you want to gain further information, or you can email potential mentors directly.
