Undergraduate Fellowship in Computational Neuroscience: From Cells to Systems and Applications

Emory and Georgia Tech have partnered to support a two year training Fellowship for top students interested in Computational Neuroscience research, beginning in their junior year. Funded by the National Institutes of Health, Fellows will receive a stipend of ~$11,000/year for research conducted with one of 18 Program Faculty at Emory or Georgia Tech whose labs are modeling or analyzing neural data.

Fellows will also complete a training curriculum designed to enhance quantitative skills and learn about Computational Neuroscience. Joint activities between campuses include courses, a biweekly Methods Clinic, and an Annual Retreat. Details can be found at the program website, which is For questions please contact Prof. Dieter Jaeger at

Deadline to apply: 11 PM, Monday, April 16, 2012.

To apply, please email with

1) statement of interest,

2) resume,

3) copy of in unofficial college transcript (3.5/4.0 GPA required),

4) planned personalized schedule for Computational Neuroscience Curriculum.
Curriculum for Emory students must include Introduction to Neurobiology (NBB 301) and the accompanying Computer Lab (NBB 301L); choice of one of the following research methods courses, Computational Methods for the Life Science OR Mathematics for Neuroscientists; choice of one of the following graduate level courses, Introduction to Computational Neuroscience (Emory IBS534) OR
