Dear Neuroinfo Community,

I wanted to alert the community about a funding opportunity through the NIH BRAIN Initiative<http://www.braininitiative.nih.gov/about.htm> for short courses to be held in the US:

BRAIN Initiative: Short Courses in Computational Neuroscience (R25)


Courses for Skills Development. This FOA will support short courses to facilitate the development of a sophisticated cadre of investigators with the requisite knowledge and skills in computational neuroscience perspectives and techniques for analyzing and interpreting complex, high-dimensional neuroscience data to advance the BRAIN Initiative. For the purposes of this FOA, computational neuroscience encompasses theoretical neuroscience, computational and mathematical modeling of neural systems, and/or statistical perspectives and techniques. Each short course is expected to include both didactics and in-person/hands-on experiences. This FOA is intended for participants who are graduate students, medical students, postdoctoral scholars, medical residents, and/or early-career faculty.

Budget: Application budgets are limited to $200,000 in direct costs annually and are expected to reflect the actual needs of the proposed project.

Award Project Period: The scope of the proposed project should determine the project period. The maximum period is 3 years.

Note: Proposed Research Education Program. While the proposed research education program may complement ongoing research training and education occurring at the applicant institution, the proposed educational experiences must be distinct from those research training and research education programs currently receiving federal support.
Letter of Intent Due Date:   October 6, 2015
Application Due Date: November 6, 2015, by 5:00PM local time; No late applications will be accepted for this Funding Opportunity Announcement
