Decoding the neural language of the brain is the defining scientific challenge of the 21st Century. Meeting this challenge will require not only new tools and technologies, but also a new culture of scientific collaboration and transdisciplinary thinking.
Inscopix launched a Neurotechnology Postdoctoral Program in 2014 to train a new generation of neuroscientists who will foster this culture. Neuroscientists who will thrive in teams of physicists, engineers, and data scientists to innovate transformative neurotechnologies. Neuroscientists who will develop an intellectual breadth that spans molecules, cells, circuits, systems, and behavior. Neuroscientists who will be dedicated to educating and training their peers to deploy new technologies for answering some of the most important questions in brain science.
So, if you are a recent graduate who wants to push the frontiers of neuroscience through your ideas and passion, and who values working with some of the world’s smartest scientists and engineers in a nurturing environment, we are looking for you.

Current postdoctoral fellows
Swagata Basu is our postdoctoral fellow for Science Communication. She received her Ph.D. (Cognition and Neuroscience) from UT, Dallas. Her thesis focused on the role of the noradrenergic system in acute modulation of cortical activity. She conducted her postdoctoral research at the NIH, where she investigated prefrontal cortex circuitry in mouse models of neurodevelopmental disorders. At Inscopix, Swagata is using her neuroscience expertise and her passion for making complex knowledge easily accessible, to educate a wide spectrum of audiences about the latest scientific and technological advances in the field.
