Hurvitz Brain Sciences Summer Student Research Program
Summer studentships typically run from May to September of each year. To be eligible, students must be enrolled in a university program and have at least a B+ average in their most recent year of study. Summer student positions through the Hurvitz Brain Sciences Research Program are not posted. Instead, students are responsible for contacting individual scientists directly whose research may be of interest to see if he or she is willing to supervise a student and to discuss potential projects.
You can find the list of scientists and their contact information on the Hurvitz Brain Sciences Research Program web pages.
There, you can find out the research interests of most of the scientists within the program. Some groupings are shown below to help guide you, with links to profiles where available.
- Biological Sciences: Aubert, Dabdoub, McLaurin, Le, Lin, Orser, Schuurmans, Screaton
- Evaluative Clinical Sciences: Adler Nevo, Birt, Black, Boulos, Castel, Chen, Cheung, Cohen, da Costa, Dimitrijevic, Etchells, Gladstone, Goldstein, Grigoriadis, Hall, Herrmann, Jaakkimainen, Kapral, Kertes, Kiss, Kreindler, Lanctot, Lee, Levitt, Lim, Liu, Mansfield, Masellis, McIlroy, Mitchell, Mochizuki, Murray, Rapoport, Rector, Schaffer, Shulman, Silver, Sinyor, Swardfager, Swartz, Tierney, Yunusova, Zinman

Summer studentships are offered on a matching basis (at least 1:1), whereby the Hurvitz Brain Sciences Research Program provides an amount of funding and the supervisor pays the rest for a minimum of 12 weeks. Scientists apply for these awards with a specific student and project in mind.
The deadline to apply for the summer studentship is March 31, 2017. Overseeing the selection process will be a review committee comprised of members from the Hurvitz Brain Sciences program. Awards will be announced in late April.
