Dear colleagues,

The computational neuroscience training (PNC) grant of the Center for 
the Neural Basis of Cognition provides a number of year-long fellowships 
to support undergraduate students at Carnegie Mellon University and the 
University of Pittsburgh to pursue computational neuroscience 
research. We seek to attract, develop, and advance the most talented 
individuals regardless of their race, sexual orientation, religion, age, 
gender, disability status or any other dimension of diversity. We 
especially encourage nominations of women, students from 
underrepresented groups, and those who are differently-abled.

Each fellow will receive a total stipend of $12,096 for the entire year, 
plus possible travel funds to attend conference meetings. The fellowship 
typically is limited to one year. One half of the fellowship is payment 
for the two academic semesters, and the other half is payment for the 
full-time summer portion. There are some course requirements for this 
fellowship to encourage students to take courses pertinent to 
computational neuroscience that may be outside the requirement of their 
majors.  Details of this program can be found in:


Application for the fellowship program is through faculty nomination 
only. A faculty member may nominate a student who is working or will be 
working in the faculty member’s laboratory. A student may start the 
fellowship program either in the summer or in the fall of 2017. Students 
who are interested in this fellowship should contact potential faculty 
mentors for research opportunities and nomination. Faculty nomination 
involves the faculty member submitting the required information about 
the student (as explained in the above webpage), which includes (1) the 
student's name, email address, transcript and resume; (2) a brief 
description of the potential project the student might engage in; and 
(3) a plan of study to fulfill the course requirements stipulated by the 
fellowship. Nominations should be sent by March 24 to Matt Smith 
(matt at smithlab.net <mailto:smithma at pitt.edu>) and Tai Sing Lee 
(tai at cnbc.cmu.edu <mailto:tai at cnbc.cmu.edu>) with subject title 
“Computational Neuroscience undergraduate year-long fellowship 
nomination”. Decisions will be made promptly thereafter.
