We're looking for talented researchers.

Our work spans disciplines. We seek individuals with backgrounds in physics, neuroscience, molecular biology, engineering or programming who are interested in applying their skills towards investigating how patterns of neural activity drive behavior.

Graduate Students

Prospective graduate students should apply directly to Princeton's doctoral programs in either Physics, Neuroscience or Quantitative and Computational Biology. Students from other Princeton doctoral programs may be elibiglbe to conduct research in the lab on a case-by-case basis. Current or incoming Princeton graduate students interested in rotating in the lab should send a CV to Andrew Leifer to schedule a meeting.


Princeton undergraduates interested in conducting research in the summer or as part of a Junior or Senior Thesis should send a CV to Andrew Leifer to schedule a visit. Please note: there are many funding opportunities for undergraduates, but they often have deadlines many months in advance, so please get in touch early. For example, our Summer Undergraduate Research Program in Molecular, Quantitative and Computational Biology has a deadline of February 1st.


The lab currently has no posted openings for post-doctoral positions. Nonetheless, it never hurts to contact Andrew Leifer directly at leifer@princeton.edu.
