We are always looking for talented, motivated graduate students and postdocs interested in neural computation. Postdocs with experience in patch clamp electrophysiology and/or computational and theoretical neuroscience are especially encouraged to apply.
- Potential graduate students already at NU: email Greg Schwartz (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss a rotation in our lab.
- Potential graduate students not currently at NU: please apply directly to the Northwestern Interdepartmental Neuroscience PhD program (NUIN) http://nuin.northwestern.edu
The Schwartz Lab sometimes take on undergrad students. As undergrads, students can learn the day-to-day operations of a working lab, and get experience in the following techniques: mouse work, genotyping, brain slicing, immunohistochemical staining techniques, and electrophysiology. Some students that demonstrate a great facility with our techniques and knowledge of our studies, have gone on to have their own projects. Please contact Greg Schwartz (email@example.com) if interested.
Undergrads must be able to work a minimum of 15 hours a week and can be hired through the following opportunities:
- Northwestern Work-Study: https://undergradaid.northwestern.edu/work-study/
- Northwestern Neuroscience Research Fellowship: https://www.neurobiology.northwestern.edu/undergraduate/Research%20Opportunities/
- Other Northwestern or private fellowships
