"Neuro-physical-computational Sciences Graduate Training"
Training Grant Directors:
Dr. Timothy J. Ebner and Dr. Donald G. Truhlar
A student must be accepted for Ph.D. study in one of the following
departments or programs: Neuroscience, Biomedical Engineering, Chemistry,
Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics, Scientific Computation
U.S. citizens, permanent residents, and international students
To provide interdisciplinary graduate training that integrates
neuroscience with the physical-computational sciences.
Each student will have an advisor and co-advisor who are members
of the Neuro-physical-computational Program. Two combinations are
possible: a) the advisor in the Neuroscience program and the co-advisor
from one of the computational/engineering/physical sciences or b)
the advisor from one of the participating computational/engineering/physical
sciences and the co-advisor in the Neuroscience program.
Each student's program will include a supporting program or minor
suitable for research in the neuro-physical computational sciences,
as determined by the advisor and co-advisor. Students majoring in
the physical or computational sciences complete a minor in Neuroscience.
Fellows participate in seminars, student colloquia, and an annual
symposium organized by the training program. They also receive a
travel allowance to attend a scientific conference. NIH hosts an
annual meeting for fellows and faculty.
