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.

Details about program curriculum, training faculty and contact
information are available at:

http://www.cnbc.cmu.edu/pnc

The online application is available at:

https://applyweb.cs.cmu.edu/apply/index.php?domain=11

The deadline for applications is January 1, 2009.
