The Division of Science wishes to announce the availability of Traineeships for Undergraduates in Computational Neuroscience through a grant from the National Institute on Drug Abuse. Traineeships will commence in summer 2013 and run through the academic year 2013-14.
The due date for applications to the new programs will be February 25, 2013.
Traineeships in Computational Neuroscience are intended to provide intensive undergraduate training in computational neuroscience for students interested in eventually pursuing graduate research. The traineeships will provide a $5000 stipend to support research in the summer, and $3000 each for fall and spring semesters during the academic year. Trainees are appointed for at least a year and up to two years. Current Brandeis sophomores and juniors are eligible to apply. In addition, to be eligible to compete for this program, you must
- have a GPA > 3.0 in Div. of Science courses
- have a commitment from a professor to advise you on a research project in computational neuroscience
- have a course work plan to complete requirements for a major in the Division of Science and this program (see below)
- intend to apply to grad school in a related field.
