The new Barcelona summer school for Advanced Modelling of Behavior (BAMB!
<http://www.bambschool.org>) teaches advanced techniques in model-based
analysis of behavior (humans and other species) to cognitive and
computational neuroscientists at PhD and early career levels. This will be
achieved through structured lectures, talks, hands-on tutorials and group
project aimed at making knowledge obtained directly applicable to the
participants' own research. We want the trainees to acquire both the conceptual
bases and the technical skills that will enable them to pursue a full
modelling approach on their own when they come back to their lab.

The course is intended for PhD students and postdocs in cognitive and
computational neuroscience with  solid background in
computational/quantitative analysis to benefit maximally from the advanced
training offered by the course. Proficiency in either Python or Matlab is
also required. We will seek a nice blend of experimentalists (cognitive
psychology / neuroscience) and theoreticians (with or without experience in
cognitive modeling). Female scientists and scientists from underrepresented
countries are especially encouraged to apply.
