The Interdepartmental Graduate Program in Dynamical Neuroscience and the University of California at Santa Barbara are committed to promoting excellence through diversity and inclusiveness.

Why Choose DYNS?

At UCSB, we have 25 core faculty spanning seven departments who conduct research and provide education in dynamical neuroscience. We are excited to offer this program, which incorporates the individual strengths of existing faculty and builds upon the significant intellectual activity that is already in place in quantitative approaches to biological phenomena at UCSB.

Its subdisciplines include such areas as molecular and cellular biology, genetics, computer science, artificial intelligence, nonlinear systems, statistical processes, physics and aspects of psychology. The UCSB campus has superb standing faculty in all of these academic disciplines.

Those completing the PhD in Dynamical Neuroscience typically pursue teaching and research careers in academic settings, though some find employment in government and industry.
