Education and Training

The CSI supports and promotes training in chronobiology and sleep at all levels


An undergraduate course in Chronobiology and Sleep is taught by Dr. David Raizen.  Exposure to the field through this course has led to a number of undergraduates seeking research experiences in chronobiology laboratories.  It also provides teaching opportunities for interested postdoctoral fellows.

Graduate Programs

Students interested in the area can enroll in one of several different graduate programs, most of which are under the Biomedical Graduate Studies umbrella:

Neuroscience Graduate Group




Cell and Molecular Biology

Graduate students pursue their PhDs in the laboratories of CSI faculty.  A graduate course in circadian rhythms and sleep is usually offered in alternate years.


CSI laboratories train postdoctoral fellows who come from all parts of the world.  The office of Biomedical Postdoctoral Programs (BPP) oversees postdoctoral training and provides workshops in career developments and research conduct.

Research Opportunities for Physicians

Fellowships are available through the Division of Sleep Medicine in the Department of Medicine (see below) and through the Department of Otolaryngology.

Please feel free to contact us with any inquires or questions about our program or the application process.
