Paid Neuroscience Research Fellowships for Summer 2019

The Center for Structural & Functional Neuroscience (CSFN) is excited to announce that it is once again sponsoring a paid summer fellowship program for undergraduate students interested in gaining research experience. Students have the opportunity to spend 10-12 weeks during the summer working in the laboratory group of a UM neuroscientist. In addition to laboratory experience, the program also includes a seminar series, to expand student’s knowledge base in the neurosciences and enhance scientific communication skills.

Beyond projects in Cellular & Molecular and Cognitive & Behavioral Neuroscience, the CSFN is also interested in sponsoring student projects that focus on the intersection of neuroscience with the Humanities, Arts & Education fields. These projects may include a non-neuroscience UM faculty mentor and be designed as either an independent or collaborative effort with other CSFN faculty. A number of the summer undergraduate research fellowships will be funded through support generously provided by the W.M. Keck Foundation as part of the UM project: Neuroscience: a novel perspective for the campus-wide integration of STEM, Liberal Arts, and Education curricula.
