PNI Summer Internship Program
JUNE 9 – AUGUST 8, 2014 (9 weeks)
The Princeton Neuroscience Institute (PNI) is offering a summer internship program for highly motivated undergraduates, providing education and hands-on research experience in the field of neuroscience. Participants will closely collaborate with students and faculty at the PNI on original research projects, and thereby gain invaluable first-hand experience on what it is like to be a neuroscientist.
Summer interns will also participate in group educational activities, including weekly foundational overview lectures from PNI faculty, lab meetings with the researchers with whom they will work, journal club reading groups, plus special forums on topics such as career advice and graduate school application preparation. Applicants must be current undergraduates, US citizens, permanent residents, or foreign undergraduates attending a US educational institution.
No stipend, housing expenses or other compensation will be provided to most interns during this summer research program. This opportunity is offered strictly as an educational experience for highly motivated students interested in pursuing neuroscience in graduate school and beyond.
However, the federal government recognizes that some groups of individuals have been historically underrepresented among researchers in the sciences. (For the official federal designations of these groups, please see this list of definitions.) We therefore encourage applications from students who identify themselves as members of these groups. Our program may be able to offer some additional assistance to the most qualified applicants from any of these recognized categories. If you self-identify as a member of one of these groups, you may contact Dawn Tindall for information about possible additional resources available to you.
All interested students should submit an online application by the deadline of March 15, 2014.
