MetadataShow full item record
The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship in Neuroscience programs are paid summer internships that give students the opportunity to work within a neuroscience laboratory affiliated with the Virginia Tech School of Neuroscience. The SURF-N program is an 11-week summer fellowship program, giving students the opportunity to experience a neuroscience laboratory, contribute to active research projects under the direction and leadership of School of Neuroscience faculty, and gain valuable experience in data presentation at the end of the summer. The expectation is that students will spend 40 hours per week immersed in a research environment assisting their faculty mentor in an ongoing research project. Students will be provided with real-world neuroscience research experience and bench skills beneficial to career development. The program concludes with a School of Neuroscience research retreat during which students are required to present their work.
