The Division of Science is pleased 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 2016 and run through the academic year 2016-17.
Please apply to the program by February 24, 2016 at 6 pm to be considered.
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. 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 related to computational neuroscience
- have a course work plan to complete requirements for a major in the Division of Science
- intend to apply to grad school in a related field.
There will be a question-and-answer session about summer research funding applications on Thursday, Jan 14 at 5 pm in Gerstenzang 123
