Job Type


The Wu Tsai Institute (WTI), a university-wide interdisciplinary neuroscience initiative at Yale University, has an open posting for multiple endowed faculty positions, at any rank. We encourage researchers with a background in applied math, computer science, data science, engineering, or related fields to apply if they have research experience or interests at the interface of neuroscience and computational modeling, in particular AI and machine learning. This confluence is on the critical path for WTI to advance our understanding of the mind and brain. 

Founded by a historic gift, the WTI is dedicated to advancing our understanding of human cognition and human potential by sparking interdisciplinary inquiry. We are building a vibrant community where theorists and experimentalists work closely together, exploring new mathematical, computational, and biological frameworks to unlock the secrets of cognition. We are fostering deeply interdisciplinary and collaborative research through innovative facilities and programs, evolving beyond the traditional academic model of single-lab science. 

Faculty identified through this search will receive an attractive start-up package, an appointment in one or more departments in the Yale Faculty of Arts and Sciences, School of Engineering and Applied Science, and/or School of Medicine, and will join a growing community of >130 faculty across Yale. They will have access to state-of-the-art lab space and core facilities in our new research building, as well as special funding mechanisms, fellowships for postdocs and students, and other events and programs.

We are strongly committed to equity and inclusion. Our student body at the undergraduate and graduate levels is increasingly diverse and we seek to hire scholars who are committed to inclusion in their research, teaching, and service. Faculty will also find excellent benefits, mentoring, and support, responsive to professional, dual career, childcare, and housing needs.
