The Center for Cognitive Neuroscience coordinates a postdoctoral training program for scientists holding the Ph.D. or M.D. degrees or their equivalent. Postdoctoral trainees may conduct research in humans or animals using a variety of techniques, or may identify two faculty sponsors and develop interdisciplinary training plans. Trainees are supported by individual faculty research grants from NIH and NSF and by individual fellowships from NIH, the James S. McDonnell Foundation and Pew Charitable Trust, and other public and private sources. Postdoctoral trainees should contact individual faculty members to inquire about training opportunities.

Living and Housing 

Graduate students are eligible to live in university-owned housing located on campus. Duke Student Affairs can provide additional information on university housing and also assist students seeking off-campus housing.
