Summer Internships (SURI)
SURI application process closed; selection process has begun!
The application process for the 2015 SURI program is now closed. Thank you to everyone who applied, and good luck in the selection process! Notifications of acceptance will be emailed out as early as the first week of March, and will continue to be sent until all labs have accepted a student.
For nine weeks in the summer of 2015, the WVUCN will offer internships of research-intensive training for qualified undergraduate students who are currently enrolled at a college or university in the US and have completed their 2nd or 3rd year. Projects are offered in sensory, cognitive, and behavioral neuroscience; in neural injury and neurodegeneration; and in neuropsychiatric diseases. The program will run from May 26 - July 27. Interns will receive a competitive salary, as well as housing in WVU-leased apartments on campus.
