Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute



We are always interested in hearing from people with experience working with animals and who are interested in their cognition and behavior. We recruit mostly via apprenticeship programs, such as URAP ( or Psychology 199, but will consider other applications as well.

Graduate Students

We are interested in people with interests in animal cognition (in particular rodents and dogs but also terrestrial invertebrate species), biomechanics, and spatial orientation.
