We are inviting applications for the MSc program in Neural Systems and 
Computation, an interdisciplinary program offered as a Joint Master 
Program by the University of Zurich and ETH Zurich, Switzerland. The 
program offers a theoretical and laboratory training in neural 
computation and systems neuroscience. It offers hands-on knowledge of 
data gathering, analysis and scientific presentation. Students join an 
international and interdisciplinary research community with expertise in 
neuroinformatics, advanced experimental techniques and neuromorphic 
engineering. Further information can be found on our homepage 

We offer a specialized full-time Masters program open to students with a 
Bachelor’s degree in the following disciplines: neurosciences, 
information technology, electrical engineering, biology, physics, 
computer sciences, chemistry, mathematics, and 
mechanical/chemical/control engineering. The core courses (all offered 
in English) provide a common foundation for students with different 
educational backgrounds, and cover the following:
     1. Systems Neurosciences
     2. Neural Computation and Theoretical Neuroscience
     3. Neurotechnologies and Neuromorphic Engineering

The application deadline for students starting in Fall Semester 2016 is 
*February 15th 2016*. Details about the application process and required 
documents can be found here: http://www.nsc.uzh.ch/?page_id=10

Mentors of the program are Richard Hahnloser, Kevan Martin, Klaas Enno 
Stephan, Giacomo Indiveri, Jean-Pascal Pfister, Mehmet Fatih Yanik, 
Bruno Weber, Fritjof Helmchen, Valerio Mante, Ruedi Stoop, Tobi 
Delbruck, Daniel Kiper, Shih-Chii Liu, Michael Pfeiffer, Matthew Cook, 
Arko Ghosh, and Wolfger von der Behrens.
