The Interdisciplinary Center for Neural Computations (ICNC) at the Hebrew
University solicits applications for its Ph.D. Program in computational
neuroscience. The Ph.D. Program exists since 1992, and currently has about
60 students, with 12-15 new admissions every year.

Graduate studies are expected to last 5 years. Starting from the beginning
of the next academic year, course language will be English. The program
welcomes students with various backgrounds, including biology, physics,
chemistry, psychology, computer science, engineering and mathematics. The
program supports its students with comfortable fellowships and covers 50% of
the tuition fees. Limited travel allowances are available. For a description
of the program, see *http://icnc.huji.ac.il/phd/general_info.php*. Examples
of Ph.D. theses of ICNC students are available at *
http://icnc.huji.ac.il/phd/theses/*.

The faculty members of the ICNC at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem are
involved in creating a new and exciting approach to solving the mysteries of
the brain, capitalizing on unusually intense scientific collaboration among
its members. The center is renowned for its scientific achievements and its
unique Ph.D. Program. The center supports cutting edge research projects on
brain research; it organizes and sponsors international research workshops;
and hosts post-doctorate fellows from around the world who come to take part
in research at the ICNC. Selected publications by ICNC members are available
at *http://icnc.huji.ac.il/publications/index.php?issueno=4*.
