Center for Neuroscience REU, University of Pittsburgh

Primary Institution: University of Pittsburgh
Affiliation: Center for Neuroscience
City: Pittsburgh
State: PA
Job Duration: 10 weeks
Class Requirement: Completed Sophomore Year
Minimum GPA: 3.0
Position Type: Research
Discipline(s): Neuroscience
Description: Each summer, the Center for Neuroscience at the University of Pittsburgh (CNUP) sponsors a 10-week program in which selected undergraduate students conduct independent research under the guidance of individual CNUP training faculty. The 2006 CNUP Summer Undergraduate Fellows Program will begin on Tuesday, May 30. Student recipients of this competitive fellowship receive a stipend of $3,000 and also will be provided housing at no-cost in a double-occupancy, on-campus dormitory. Students will be responsible for their own meals and other expenses, including travel to and from Pittsburgh.

We expect that most applicants for the CNUP Summer Undergraduate Fellows Program will have completed their sophomore or junior year of undergraduate training. Successful candidates typically demonstrate grade point averages of 3.0 (""B"") or higher, especially in Science, Math and related coursework. Our goal in offering this fellowship is to give talented students the opportunity to experience the challenges and rewards of intensive, hypothesis-driven laboratory research in Neuroscience. Students who envision a future for themselves in medicine typically will not be as competitive for this fellowship, unless that vision includes an important potential role for laboratory-based Neuroscience research. Although many students may already have some laboratory research experience, such experience is not a prerequisite for this fellowship program.
Stipend: $3,000
