  1. I saw that someone created the 2021 neuroscience admissions topic around this same time last year, so I figured it's never to early to start preparing for the 2022 cycle. Hope we can help each other throughout this process, and best of luck to everyone!
  2. Hello gradcafe folks, I plan to apply for neuroscience PhD program this year. I especially want to study computational cognitive neuroscience. My BS and MS are in Electrical and Computer Engineering. I have been working as a software engineer for 6 years. I have done research in computer vision in undergraduate which I have published a paper and presented in a conference. I have little research experience in neuroscience. The only experience I got so far is doing EEG, ECG, EDA and fMRI data collection as a volunteer intern in a lab in UCSF. I am seeking for some advice in writing my unusual past experience. Here are few possible outlines in my mind: Option 1: go deep about my research in computer vision and how it can blend with computational neuroscience study without mentioning my industrial work in machine learning and my little experience in neuroscience because there is no significant accomplishments from there. Option 2: allocate 2/3 parts to my research in computer vision while briefly use 1/3 parts talking about what I learnt from my industrial work in machine learning and my little research experience in neuroscience. In this way, I can show my diverse experience and how it can prepare me for computational neuroscience study. Curious about what people think about the better way to highlight my own values that can bring into computational cognitive neuroscience. Any other alternatives are welcomed. Thank you for reading this in advance.
  3. Hello everyone! This is my first time using this site so I hope I am going about this question correctly - I'm currently an international applicant looking to apply for a PhD in Neuroscience in the United States for Fall 2021 entry. I know this is early but I would like advise early if possible from other applicants, since most colleges state they are unable to let me know of my competitiveness for their program. My background: I am currently about to graduate from a university in the UK you will not have heard of with a 4.0 GPA in Medical Science I've just been accepted into a 1-year MSc Translational Neuroscience at Imperial College London for Fall 2020 entry. I know my GPA is competitive and I will not be required to sit the TOEFL as I'm British. But I'm worried about my experience, in the UK we do not often publish as undergraduates and I have no publications. I've worked on one independent research project for 8 months as part of my course and I'll be conducting one for my masters, however I doubt either will publish. The rest of my experience is clinical - I have worked in the Emergency Department doing patient triaging and worked in palliative care for 4 years each. I'm looking to apply to John Hopkins, UPenn, Duke and UNC Chapel Hill. If you have any recommended programmes that may be less competitive but respectable please let me know. Will I be a likely contender for the spaces on those programs? I know my experience is lacking and I cannot take time to get more before that's suggested. Please be honest as an application would cost time and money. Thankyou all!
  4. Hello, long time lurker here, finally fed up with looking at the same posts over and over again, so figured I might as well shoot my own shot: I've had my heart set on pursuing a Ph.d in neuro for a long time now, but my research exp. coming from a small liberal arts school and community college, has always been pretty lacking. For this reason I took what i deemed an L and went off to a masters program--NOT funded. Now I have been learning about these post-bac programs and they honestly seem to be a heck of a lot more credible than most MS programs for pumping out Ph.d candidates; espescially in terms of giving these individuals solid research background/exp. ANYWAYS, is it too late to apply to the NIH post bac programs? Would not being able to start until August or September eliminate my chances? Please excuse my typo's***
  5. Calling all neuro applicants for Fall 2019 matriculation! I figured it was time to make a post specifically for us to comment, ask for feedback, and post interview dates and results!
