Description:
The Center for Visual Science at the University of Rochester announces its Summer Research Fellowship Program in Vision Science. Students interested in vision science, neuroscience, cognitive science, artificial intelligence, and biomedical science are invited to join the Center for Visual Science for a summer of supervised laboratory training. Applicants will be selected based on academic achievements and an interest in pursuing graduate studies in science. Both US and foreign applications will be accepted.

The program will provide a stipend of $4,136 for a summer of continuous training in a faculty member's lab. In addition, our fellowship will cover travel for US citizens and permanent residents (and up to $500 in travel costs for foreign students) and cover the majority of on-campus housing expenses for non-local students. Training will also include an orientation, weekly talks from CVS faculty, and a poster session and CVS picnic at summer's end.

Note: The program is restricted to undergraduate students or recent graduates who have not been accepted to graduate school programs. Successful applicants are typically juniors or seniors who have research experience.
