The Janelia Joint Graduate Program is a fully-funded, collaborative PhD program for independent, committed graduate scholars in partnership with The Johns Hopkins University.

Graduate scholarsĀ in the program spend their first year at the partner university and then reside at Janelia for the remaining years of the program to conduct their thesis research. Degrees are granted by Johns Hopkins. ScholarsĀ have two supervisors, one at Janelia and the other at Johns Hopkins.

Graduate scholars conduct research in the following fields:

  • Behavioral & Systems Neuroscience
  • Cellular & Molecular Neuroscience
  • Evolution & Genetics
  • Instrumentation & Computational Tool Development
  • Neuronal Cell Biology
  • Optical Physics & Imaging
  • Structural Biology & Biochemistry
  • Theory & Computational Neuroscience

The program is intentionally small, which allows us to meet each scholar’s individual needs. Graduate scholars benefit from considerable personal attention in the laboratory to support their training and professional development.
