Only program faculty members can submit applications.
Here is what you would have to do: 1. First contact a potential mentor. Your mentor must be training program faculty. Read their websites to see whose research seems interesting. Write in your email that you are interested not only in their lab but also in applying to the Training Program in Computational Neuroscience. If a professor you would like to work with is not yet training program faculty but their work seems to have a relation to computational neuroscience, they can apply to be training program faculty by emailing the program directors (Professors Wei Ji Ma and Xiao-Jing Wang) and describing how their work is related to computational neuroscience (interpreted broadly and including computational cognitive science).
2. If the professor agrees to discuss possibilities, you will meet with them to see if you have common interests. If so, you will together formulate a project, usually over the course of several meetings.
3. You will provide your CV (resume) and transcript. Your mentor will forward those materials along with a nomination letter describing your qualifications, the project, a timeline, and their commitment to mentorship.
Mentors should send nominations to Professor Wei Ji Ma at firstname.lastname@example.org and Savannah Diaz at email@example.com, with subject line “TPCN undergraduate nomination”.
The deadline is July 31.
QUESTIONS? Email Professor Wei Ji Ma at firstname.lastname@example.org.
