CNS Exchange Program
The CNS Program has established a formal program of graduate student exchange with the Interdisciplinary Center for Neural Computation (ICNC) at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel. The ICNC is a full-fledged PhD program, very similar to our CNS program, that leads to a PhD in Neural Computation. This will give you the opportunity to spend up to three months in Israel, all paid for by Caltech and the Hebrew University. By any account, their faculty is world class.
Hebrew University CNS Program Faculty:
Both CNS and ICNC have unique strengths that we would seek to capitalize on. Accordingly, we have formalized a student exchange program. Up to five CNS graduate students can spend between one and three months in a laboratory of a ICNC faculty member. Likewise, up to 5 graduate students from ICNC would be associated for a period between one and three months with a particular laboratory in the CNS program. Given the many professional and personal ties we have with these researchers, we are very excited about the possibility and foresee that this graduate student exchange program could expand to include, over time, faculty visits and exchanges and the teaching of joint classes.
More about how the Exchange Program works
Additional comment: Although almost all Israeli are fluent in English, and all seminars are in English, most of the classes are taught in Hebrew. However, if there is sufficient interest, faculty could teach in English and you could take these classes for credit.
