Candidates working in all sub- disciplines of neuroscience are welcome to apply. We are particularly interested in building our research relevant to neuroendocrinology, epigenetics, neuroinflammation, neurodevelopment, synaptic plasticity and the neurobiology of sleep.

All department faculty are members of the Graduate Program in Life Sciences which awards the PhD in eight biomedical disciplines (http://lifesciences.umaryland.edu).
