Binghamton University’s doctoral program in cognitive and brain sciences emphasizes the development of critical thinking, research competence and theory construction and evaluation. Our students are trained in areas of cognitive neuroscience that include language processing, learning and memory, perception, attention and emotion, and cognitive development. A specific teaching curriculum is also included, and research training is heavily emphasized. Students should be dedicated to the pursuit of new knowledge in developmental research and modern pedagogy.

Potential candidates will be invited for an interview on campus with travel expenses compensated by the department. Interviews via Skype are available for students currently overseas. Students may be admitted with a tuition scholarship and stipends for serving as research or teaching assistants.
