Administration and Services

Berkeley Neuroscience serves as the intellectual hub for neuroscience studies and research activities at the University of California’s Berkeley campus. Berkeley Neuroscience staff together with several departmental and research unit administrations provide a full complement of administrative services in support of Berkeley Neuroscience’s mission.

Financial and Human Resources services are provided by each faculty member’s specific research unit and/or department. Campus Shared Services – Team 9 provides consolidated services to a plurality of Berkeley Neuroscience’s stakeholders. Communications, advancement, and PhD program coordination is provided by Berkeley Neuroscience’s staff.

Financial and Human Resources Services

Financial and Human Resources services are provided by each faculty member’s specific research unit and/or department. Before looking for a specific service, ask the faculty in charge what entity is managing his/her administrative services.

Campus Shared Services Team 9 provides services for a large number of Berkeley Neuroscience’s faculty. For specific information, go to People in Team 9.

Administrative FAQ’s

Q1. How do I find out who to contact about an administrative matter?
A1. Find what administrative unit provides services to your lab. Alternately, ask your faculty member what administrative unit manages his/her funds, since most administrative services are connected to funds management. Once you get the answer, contact the appropriate person/service provider [see Financial and Human Resources Services – Link b. on this admin site].
Q2. Who do I contact to get access to a building and/or lab space?
A2. Each building/lab space has different procedures and personnel in charge. Ask your faculty member who provides building access services. For Barker Hall, in particular, see Forms [Link f. on this admin site]. Please read the guidelines before taking action.
Q3. I am a young faculty, and have a question about academic personnel. Who do I contact?
A3. All faculty academic personnel matters are handled through the home department, not Berkeley Neuroscience.
Q4. I am a postdoctoral researcher, and I have a question about academic personnel. Who do I contact?

Q5. I am a graduate student who needs to be paid as a Graduate Student Researcher from my research mentor’s grant/fund. Who do I contact?
A5. Ask your mentor what administrative unit manages his/her funds, since most administrative services are connected to funds management. Once you get the answer, you can contact the appropriate person/service provider [see Financial and Human Resources Services – Link b. on this admin site].
Q6. I am new to the campus. How do I get a CalNet token to set up my email account?
