View this Opportunity's Website 


Academic Level:
Undergraduates - Sophomore
Undergraduates - Junior
Undergraduates - Senior

Description:
For nine weeks in the summer, the WVU Centers for Neuroscience will offer internships of research-intensive training for qualified undergraduate students. Our research opportunities incorporate molecular- to systems-level analyses of nervous system function. Projects are offered in sensory, cognitive, and behavioral neuroscience; in neural injury and neuro-degeneration; and in neuropsychiatric diseases. Interns are expected to devote their time to a well-defined research project under the supervision of a CN faculty member.

Interns will receive a $4,000 salary (before taxes) as well as housing in WVU on-campus dorms. Interns will have access to many of the University's facilities, including the new Health Sciences Library, free bus rides around campus and town, and unlimited use of the the modern, 177,000 sq. ft. Student Recreation Center.

An online application will be accepted from students currently enrolled at a U.S. college or university, who have completed their second or third year (seniors graduating in 2016 should contact the Centers administrator before applying). Preference will be given to students considering research for their graduate careers, who have a strong background in biology, chemistry, engineering, neuroscience, physics, or psychology, with an overall GPA of 3.0 or higher. Applicants are required to submit their curriculum vitae, official college transcript(s), and two letters of recommendation.
