2022 Western-Fields School in Networks and Neuroscience

Representation of a network interacting with a brain

Applications are invited for a summer school at the interface of mathematics and neuroscience. With similar scope as the 2021 joint seminar series, the Western-Fields School in Networks and Neuroscience will bring together advanced undergraduate students, graduate students, and postdoctoral scholars for a week of training in methods for:

  • networks;
  • dynamics;
  • learning; and
  • modelling biological neural networks.

Lectures will cover:

  • graph theory;
  • network dynamics;
  • advanced algebra; and
  • machine learning.

Students will receive intensive training ranging from an introduction to advanced methods in this field.

Dates and Locations

This summer school will be held September 19–23, 2022, on campus at Western University, with a closing session at the Fields Institute in Toronto on September 23, 2022.

How to Apply

Our team is committed to fostering diversity in mathematics and neuroscience, and a goal of this summer school is to encourage diverse candidates with quantitative training to consider problems in this growing field.

Applications should consist of a CV and one-page statement of interest, submitted as a single PDF file to lmuller2@uwo.ca and minac@uwo.ca.

Review of applications will begin June 15, 2022, with notifications shortly thereafter.


If you have any questions about the program, please contact lmuller2@uwo.ca.
