The Neurobiology Postdoc Club (NPC) community hosts an annual extramural postdoctoral seminar series “INCEPT: Interdisciplinary Neuroscience Colloquia of Extramural Postdoc Talks”. This program features scientific talks from talented postdocs in the field of neuroscience. Speakers will be able to share their cutting-edge research with the HMS community, receive valuable feedback, and directly interact with fellow postdocs and faculty members. This forum provides invited speakers with a unique opportunity to increase their scientific visibility and to network in preparation for the job search process. Equally, this initiative allows HMS fellows to interact with the next generation of independent scientists.

HMS INCEPT 2021-2022

The next “HMS INCEPT” series will take place during Winter and Spring of 2022. We welcome applications from extramural senior postdocs in any field of neuroscience: genetics, molecular, cellular, physiology, systems, behavioral, and computational. 

The application deadline is August 31, 2021. We anticipate that in-person presentations will be safe. safe. Funds for travel, food and accommodations will be provided for out-of-town speakers. In the event that in-person presentations are not possible, they will be held virtually.

Click here to apply. We encourage candidates from diverse backgrounds and specially welcome those whose experience in research, teaching, and outreach informs their commitment to making neuroscience discoveries that are inclusive and have broad impact.

Please note that in order to keep the seminar series extramural in nature, postdoctoral fellows who work in any Harvard or Harvard Medical School-affiliated hospital are not eligible to apply.
