The Wu Tsai Postdoctoral Fellowship program seeks applications from soon-to-be or recent doctorates interested in joining our vibrant scientific community. We are particularly interested in applications from scientists with a genuine commitment todiversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in science and who represent a diversity of backgrounds, perspectives, and identities, including those from backgrounds historically underrepresented in the sciences, as defined by the NIH.
Fellows will work in different priority research areas identified annually through a competitive search (initial cohort below) and are also welcomed to apply to a general open call if they have other research interests consistent with the WTI mission. To promote interdisciplinary training and grow professional networks, Fellows will be co-mentored by two or more Yale faculty members working in different departments, research areas,levels of analysis, and/or techniques. Co-mentors have been selected in part based on their track record of mentoring and evidence of establishing inclusive and supportive research environments. Fellows will pursue collaborative research that drives scientific discoveriesabout the mind through an integrative study of the brain.
