The Laboratory for Computational Brain Modeling and Analysis at Rutgers 
University has several funded openings for PhD students in Computational 

Our Lab is part of the CS Department, which has been consistently ranked 
at the top-35 CS Departments in U.S.

We are searching for Renaissance types who are broadly trained and can 
march across disciplines to find solutions

In addition to Computer Science, there are 5 areas of knowledge required 
for a successful presence in the Lab - robotics, signal analysis, system 
identification, mathematics and neurophysiology

When you come (or when you leave), you are expected to be proficient in 
at least three of these areas

Interested students could send a 1-page summary of their background and 
how it relates to the Computational Brain Analysis and Modeling as well 
as their CV

=== COMBRA Lab

COMBRA Lab has ongoing collaborations with research labs at MIT and 
McGill University as well as clinical sites at Harvard Medical School 
and the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital

The Lab is integrated into the Center for Computational Biomedicine 
Imaging and Modeling (CBIM) Center, a highly multidisciplinary Center at 
Rutgers that includes research labs on human motion capture experiments, 
machine learning and robotics

=== Rutgers University

Rutgers University is the 8th-oldest college in the United States, one 
of the top-50 universities in the world with 250 years of innovation in 
research and teaching

Rutgers is in the middle of the greatest concentration of industrial and 
government research laboratories in the U.S., within 1-hour drive to 
Manhattan, NY and Philadelphia
