The lab after a highly successful room escape!


We are always interested in recruiting curious, enthusiastic neuroscientists to our team. Candidates for post-doctoral, doctoral, or undergraduate research positions should contact Dr. Shansky as instructed below.

Postdoctoral Research Scientists

To apply for a position as a postdoctoral fellow, submit a CV, a description of past and future research interests, and the names and contact information for at least three references to r.shansky [at] Describe why you are excited by our research and how you will contribute to our ongoing research program.

Graduate Students

Providing mentorship and training for graduate students is a top priority of the lab, and we seek motivated students interested in conducting interdisciplinary behavioral neuroscience research.  Prospective students should apply to the Ph.D. program through the Northeastern University Department of Psychology, and are encouraged to email Dr. Shansky at r.shansky[at] with any questions about the program or the lab.

Undergraduate Researchers

We accept undergraduate students from the BNS, Psychology, Biology, and Engineering majors who seek to further their understanding of neuroscience and gain valuable lab experience. Students may join the lab as a directed study, work study, co-op, or volunteer. Interested students can email r.shansky[at] to set up a meeting with Dr. Shansky. We prefer students currently in their 2nd or 3rd year.
