The Ph.D. Program in Neural Computation (PNC) at Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh is now accepting applications.

Carnegie Mellon University, in collaboration with the University of Pittsburgh, recently created a Ph.D. program in computational neuroscience called the Program in Neural Computation (PNC). This program, now in its third year, is seeking qualified applicants to begin their graduate training in the Fall of 2009. The PNC is supported in part by an NIH training grant. It emerged as an outgrowth of the highly successful certificate program that has been administered by the CMU/Pitt Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition for the last ten years. Students in the program can train with a wide array of faculty from both Carnegie Mellon and the University of Pittsburgh.
The PNC seeks to attract students with strong quantitative backgrounds who are interested in graduate work in the area of computational neuroscience, and for whom other graduate programs may not be the best fit.
