About Our Faculty
Our faculty are highly distinguished scientists who have made fundamental discoveries in all areas of Neuroscience from molecules to cognition. They have international reputations for excellence in both research and teaching, and are actively involved in training of Neuroscience program students through participation in program leadership, direct mentorship, and instruction of program courses.
To encourage faculty participation in program activities beyond training within their labs, we implement a point system which serves as a transparent method of providing feedback and credit for service. Points are given for different roles (see table here); Training status reflects an accumulation of at least 5 points, while Affiliate status reflects an accumulation of between 1-5 points. Faculty with trainees in their lab are expected to participate in program service. The point system sets expectations and provides students with information on faculty involvement.
Faculty who are interested in formally affiliating with the Neurosciences IDP will meet with the program co-directors to discuss expectations and opportunities for engagement.
