Applicants for PhD programs in the field of Computational Neuroscience are encouraged to consider the joint training program in this area at Emory University and Georgia Tech (www.compneurosci.college.emory.edu<http://www.compneurosci.college.emory.edu>).  Our faculty span multiple subareas of the discipline ranging from the computational analysis of ion channels to behavioral neuroscience, neural imaging, and neurotechnology in a highly collaborative atmosphere.  The computational training program includes students from our Neuroscience and Biomedical Engineering PhD programs and involves a set of core classes, a weekly journal club or methods clinic, an annual retreat, and many opportunities for collaborative research projects.   All PhD students are fully funded for their tenure at Emory and/or Georgia Tech.  Applications are submitted via the Neuroscience training program (http://biomed.emory.edu/PROGRAM_SITES/NS/) with a deadline of December 1 or the Biomedical Engineering program (https://www.bme.gatech.edu/bme/graduate) also with a deadline of December 1.   Pre-submission contacts with anyone on the faculty list for the program (http://www.compneurosci.college.emory.edu/faculty/faculty-profiles/index.html) are welcome and we will be happy to answer such queries.
Atlanta is a great place to live and experience all four seasons of the year, with many affordable housing options in close proximity to either campus, and a large range of cultural activities involving almost all nationalities.  The biking/hiking/eating culture is exploding. Food and shopping are superb and also internationally diverse,  the Appalachians and the oceans are easy weekend destinations, and through the busiest airport in the world (Atlanta Hartsfield) many destinations are easily reached.
