Applications to the Brooklyn College Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program are now active. The program, which is funded by the National Science Foundation, gives students the opportunity to design, develop, and execute independent research under the supervision of a mentor from our REU faculty. At the end of the program students are able to present their findings at the Brooklyn College Science Day, a department-wide conference held at the end of the year. In addition to mentored research, students will have the opportunity to participate in a course in ethics training, a neuroscience journal club, and a neuroscience seminar.
Twelve applicants will be accepted for the 2014 semester and each will be awarded $3100 towards payment for hours spent in the lab, as well as academic supplies. (As it is a local program, the stipend is not intended to be used towards housing.) The 2014 program spans fifteen weeks from January 27 to May 16.
The application deadline is Oct. 1 2013. Students are encouraged to apply as early as possible!
