Graduate and Postdoctoral Training Program
Beginning in July 2023, the Computational Neuroscience Center has a new NIH-funded training program, Training in theoretical and computational approaches to neural circuits of cognition, with annual support for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Graduate students in any UW degree-granting program and postdoctoral fellows who have committed to doing research in the laboratories of the training grant faculty are welcome to apply for admission to the Computational Neuroscience Training Program. Applicants planning collaborative research between experimental and theoretical labs are particularly encouraged to apply.
The program was established to encourage and support interdisciplinary education and research training theoretical aspects of neuroscience. Awardees will receive up to 2 years of stipend support, as well as partial tuition for students, as well as a small allowance for supplies and travel. The training program includes coursework, workshops, presentation opportunities and interactions with an interdepartmental mentoring committee for guidance in choice of coursework and research direction.
Please sign up for the CNC mailing list for more information on applying to the training program.
Please note that the CNTG is NOT a degree-granting program: interested students must apply to the UW through one of the relevant graduate programs, including Computer Science and Engineering, Applied Mathematics, Neurobiology and Behavior, Psychology, Physics and many others.
