NYU/CNS: Center Neural Science

Summer Research Program 2019
The Center for Neural Science hosts a summer research experience program for undergraduates with an interest in neuroscience. Students apply for positions in a 10-week summer program during which they actively participate in research projects in the laboratories of New York University science faculty.
We match students to laboratories primarily on the basis of their background preparation and areas of interest. They work either directly with faculty or with graduate students or postdoctoral fellows. Each student conducts a research project under the direction of his or her mentor. The projects involve on-going research in the host laboratory.
The students are involved in all phases of the research process from experimental design to data analysis and communication of results. In addition to the research experience, the students meet regularly for neuroscience seminars at which faculty and graduate students of the NYU research community from the downtown Washington Square Campus and the NYU Medical School present summaries of their work, and the summer students discuss their own projects.
At the end of the program, the students each give a presentation of their own work. They prepare an abstract and write a journal-style report on their work, and give a 20-minute oral presentation in a special summer research conference. The primary goal of this program is to extend the Center’s robust neuroscience research opportunities to non-NYU students. Financial support is available to non-NYU students through the NSF REU-Site Grant.

Integrated Biological Sciences Summer Research Program (IBS-SRP)

In the Integrated Biological Sciences Summer Research Program, students do independent research projects with faculty mentors for ten weeks in one of seven research areas:
• Bioenergy
• Cellular and Molecular Biology
• Computational Biology & Biostatistics
• Environmental Biology
• Neurobiology
• Plant Development, Breeding and Genetics
• Virology

In addition to meeting with a weekly interdisciplinary group, students prepare research proposals, final papers, and oral presentations summarizing their work. Students also have the opportunity to explore the UW and Madison.

The range of biological research areas in which students may participate is quite extensive. Applicants are encouraged to learn about faculty doing research in their areas of interest, and identify their top choices for potential mentors in the application.

Applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents between their sophomore and senior years who have a grade point average of at least 3.0 and strong interest in a career in biological research. Selection and laboratory placement of students will take place in January, February, and March. Applicants who are not placed will be notified by the end of April.
