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 Sunnybrook Research Institute 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 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:
- Basic neurosciences: Aubert, Johnston, Orser
- Imaging neurosciences: Aviv, Fox, Goertz, Graham, MacIntosh, Stefanovic, Stuss, Symons, Yeung
- Mental health neurosciences: Adler Nevo, Castel, Cheung, Cohen, Feinstein, Goldstein, Grigoriadis, Herrmann, Kreindler, Lanctôt, Levitt, Rapoport, Rector, Richter, Schaffer, Shulman, Sinyor
- Neurological sciences: Black, Gawel, Gladstone, Hall, Lee, Lim, Lin, Masellis, McIlroy, Mochizuki, Murray, Silver, Swartz, Yunusova, Zinman
- Aging: Lee, Liu
- Epidemiology and health sciences: Birt, Etchells, Friesen, Jaakkimainen, Kiss, Upshur
We anticipate that we may have up to 10 summer studentships this year on a matching funds basis, whereby the Brain Sciences Research Program provides $3,000 in 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.
April 3, 2013 is the deadline for the brain sciences research summer studentship. Overseeing the selection process will be a review committee comprised of members from the program. Awards will be announced in late April.
