The Neuroscience Graduate Group (NGG) at the University of Pennsylvania is a collaborative and interdisciplinary PhD program that is currently accepting applications for matriculation in the fall of 2016. We are particularly interested in attracting exceptional applicants with backgrounds in Neuroscience, Computer Science, Cognitive Science, Mathematics, Engineering, Physics, and/or Psychology and are interested in the broadly defined field of Computational Neuroscience. We have a robust and interdisciplinary community of scholars in this field, including:

Geoff Aguirre, Neurology
Vijay Balasubramanian, Physics
Danielle S Bassett, Bioengineering
David H Brainard, Psychology
Maja Bucan, Genetics
Johannes Burge, Psychology
Alice S Chen-Plotkin, Neurology
Brian Chow, Bioengineering
Yale E Cohen, Otorhinolaryngology
Diego Contreras, Neuroscience
Steven Eliades, Otorhinolaryngology
Christopher M Fang-Yen, Bioengineering
Maria Neimark Geffen, Otorhinolaryngology
Joshua I Gold, Neuroscience
Joseph W Kable, Psychology
Michael J Kahana, Psychology
Max Kelz, Anesthesiology
Brian Litt, Neurology and Bioengineering
Minghong Ma, Neuroscience
Joel D Mainland, Neuroscience
Nicole C Rust, Psychology
Marc Schmidt, Biology
Robert G Smith, Neuroscience
Alan A Stocker, Psychology
Sharon Thompson-Schill, Psychology

Penn also has strong programs in Statistics, Computer Science, Engineering, and Psychology with faculty actively involved in machine learning, decision making, perception, and computational learning theory. NGG students are encouraged to pursue collaborations and interactions with these groups.

Penn also is home to a newly established Computational Neuroscience Initiative (https://cni.upenn.edu <https://cni.upenn.edu/>), which oversees many of our academic and research programs related to computational neuroscience.

The application deadline for the NGG is December 1, 2015. For more details please see our website:
