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.
Hello, i am applying for a phd position. The university requires a cover letter and a research statement , I have already written the cover letter , but it already includes my background and my research interest . So I am wondering if I should still right a separate statement ? thank you
