Princeton Neuroscience Institute Summer Internship Program
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. The program offers a competitive stipend and covers travel and housing expenses for visiting students.
The PNI welcomes and encourages applications from those who identify themselves as belonging to groups that have been historically underrepresented among researchers in the sciences. (For the official federal designations of these groups, please see this list of definitions.)
All interested students should submit an online application here by the deadline of March 1, 2016.
Contact Dawn Tindall with any application questions. Please read our Summer Internship Program FAQ section below for answers to common questions.
