After teaching computational neuroscience and deep learning to thousands of students and creating a wonderful supportive community in the last three years, Neuromatch Academy is back with the usual two courses plus a brand new course from our sister organization, Climatematch Academy (CMA). All in parallel, online, July 10th – July 28th, 2023.
NMA – Computational Neuroscience
Flagship course covering contemporary computational neuroscience modeling and analysis techniques.
NMA – Deep Learning: In-depth advanced materials, ideal for graduate students and postdocs wishing to add computational techniques to their neuroscience research, or for individuals looking to dive into the Deep Learning world.
CMA – Computational Tools for Climate Science (17-28th July)
The newest course, a wide-reaching, inclusive and approachable program aimed to introduce computational methods for climate science. Check out the CMA website.
Access the Application Portal via https://academy.neuromatch.io/ and apply before the deadline (April 24th).
What is Neuromatch Academy?
Neuromatch Academy (NMA) teaches computational techniques crucial for success in academia and industry. It serves thousands of students each year with hundreds of teaching assistants (TA). Students learn by solving problems in small groups and by running group projects; they learn in many languages in an incredibly supportive environment.
What’s in a course?
Our courses are intensive 3-week programs involving hands-on tutorials developed by experts in the field. Accepted students are placed into TA-led pods (groups) using the Neuromatch algorithm, which matches students with common interests who are in the same timezone and their preferred language for instruction. Students also receive personalized support as they work through hands-on tutorials and collaborate on course projects. [Please note that course participation requires active attendance and attention of the students for 3 weeks.]
Why should you apply to NMA?
This program provides a dynamic learning experience that fuses neuroscience and computational techniques. Collaborate with a global community of experts and peers, hone your problem-solving skills, and build a supportive network that celebrates inclusivity and accessibility in science education. Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to advance your knowledge and skills.
Apply to unlock your potential and propel your career forward!
What does it cost?
Neuromatch Academy’s mission is to make education affordable to everybody, no matter their financial background. We do this by pricing our courses significantly lower than other summer schools, adjusting for national economic factors, and allowing students to pay what they can when those adjustments are insufficient.
