The Vollum/NGP Undergraduate Summer Research Program offers summer undergraduate research internships with a stipend that covers housing and living expenses. Preference is given to students with strong interest in Ph.D. training in neuroscience.
Talented young scientists from around the United States and overseas are selected through a competitive application process. Students are partnered with labs where they pursue independent research in molecular, cellular, and behavioral neuroscience. In addition to working in the lab, students attend regular classes on the principles of modern neuroscience, and receive valuable mentoring on applying to graduate school and pursuing careers in science.
Interested applicants can check out participating laboratories by clicking on the Neuroscience Research tab to browse research topics that are available. The program runs for 8 weeks from mid-June to mid-August. A stipend and housing is provided as well as a limited moving reimbursement. International applicants must be enrolled in a US institution prior to the start of the summer program.
The application opens on November 1, 2023 and closes on January 15, 2024.
The OHSU campus also has a Equity Summer Research Program specifically for underrepresented minority students. Interested students are urged to apply to both programs as students in the OHSU-wide program can work in NGP labs.
