MSc in Neural Systems and Computation - University of Zurich and ETH Zurich

We are inviting again applications of prospective MSc students in our  MSc program in Neural Systems and Computation, an interdisciplinary program offered as a Joint Master Program by the University of Zurich and ETH Zurich, Switzerland. The program offers a theoretical and laboratory training in neural computation and systems neuroscience. It offers hands-on knowledge of data gathering, analysis and scientific presentation. Students join an interdisciplinary research community with expertise in neuroinformatics, advanced experimental techniques and neuromorphic engineering. Further information can be found on our homepage http://www.nsc.uzh.ch.

The application deadline for students starting in Spring Semester 2016 is September 15th 2015. Details about the application process and required documents can be found here: http://www.nsc.uzh.ch/?page_id=10

The program is affiliated with the Mathematics and Natural Sciences Faculty (MNF) at the University of Zurich (UZH) and the Information Technology and Electrical Engineering Department (D-ITET) of the ETH Zurich. All applications are handled by the University of Zurich. Application documents should be sent to nsc@ini.uzh.ch.

Please share and forward to any potentially interested students - thank you!
