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

In recognition of the increased demand for computationally-oriented
researchers, Carnegie Mellon University, in collaboration with the
University of Pittsburgh, last year created this Ph.D. program in
computational neuroscience.  This program is seeking qualified applicants to
begin their graduate training in the Fall of 2008.

As neuroscientists have applied new technologies to acquire and analyze
large data sets, and have developed new models for understanding
increasingly complicated neurobiological systems, quantitative methods have
become centrally important to their effort.  The new graduate program takes
advantage of the unusually large and highly collaborative group of faculty
and students in neuroscience in the Pittsburgh community, and builds on the
existing, but non-degree granting, graduate program of the Center for the
Neural Basis of Cognition.  Training in all areas of computational
neuroscience is available with special focus on application of dynamical
systems, machine learning and statistical approaches to the understanding of
the brain at all levels.
