Programming experience in Python and C++ are required; experience in CUDA is also highly valued. For more information, see http://physiology.med.cornell.edu/faculty/nirenberg/lab/.

Weill Cornell Medicine (Cornell University’s Medical School) is among the top-ranked clinical and medical research centers in the country. Founded in 1898, the medical school is part of a large biomedical enterprise extending along York Avenue between 65th and 72nd streets on Manhattan's Upper East Side that includes Rockefeller University and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Many of the graduate programs and seminar series are jointly run by the three institutions, making it a fun and vibrant learning environment.
