Neuroscience Careers

The majority of neuroscience majors plan to further their education by attending professional schools in medicine, veterinary medicine, dentistry, and pharmacy. Others go on to graduate school programs in a variety of fields (neuroscience, psychology, biology, microbiology, cellular & molecular biology, and education, to name a few). Still others obtain jobs in industry, sales, education, or with the government. There are many options!

If you need assistance with identifying career interests, learning job-search strategies, sharpening your interview techniques, or other career-related issues, contact the University of Michigan Career Center. The Career Center is a great resource for students and recent alumni. Their advisors can help with every aspect of career planning. They can also help with finding professional schools and assisting with the application process and personal statements.

Another good resource for career exploration is the NeuroJobs site (hosted by the Society for Neuroscience, the "world's largest organization of scientists and physicians devoted to understanding the brain and nervous system").
