Neuroscience Research Internship
A limited number of Neuroscience Research Internships are available for the summer of 2017. This opportunity is designed to allow first, second, and third year students majoring in Neuroscience the opportunity to try out research in a neuroscience laboratory. It is only through directly experiencing the joys and tribulations of the research process that students can discover their own affinity for and interest in laboratory work.
Students must work with a UChicago faculty member (= Principal Investigator or PI) to develop a project that is both important and feasible within the confines of this 10-week program. Once accepted, student interns are expected to work full-time in a Neuroscience laboratory on campus, toward completion of their proposed project. Interns must also participate in weekly meetings with Professor Peggy Mason, the Neuroscience Major Director. All students will be expected to present their work at a final evening symposium that is open to the public, including family and friends.
The 10-week program will began on Monday, June 19, 2017 and will conclude on Friday, August 25, 2017. Students may not register for any courses during this 10-week summer Fellowship. Students will receive a $4,000 stipend.
Please fill out and submit the attached application, and have your PI email a letter of interest to Melinda Markert (email@example.com).
