Training Program in Computational Neuroscience

The Training Program in Computational Neuroscience is an NIH-funded program for graduate and undergraduate trainees at NYU. It falls under the funding opportunity NIH blueprint training in computational neuroscience: from biology to model and back again (RFA-DA-16-009). Each year, the grant provides three slots for graduate trainees who are also citizens or permanent residents (NRSA; grant number T90DA043219), two slots for non-NRSA graduate trainees (R90DA043849), and six slots for undergraduate regardless of citizenship status (also R90DA043849). The training program provides stipends that support research, but also additional mentorship and training activities in computational neuroscience. Specific emphasis is on relating theory to experiment.
