Undergraduate Summer Fellowship Program in Vision Science

June 1-July 31, 2016

2015 program schedule

The Center for Visual Science at the University of Rochester announces its 2016 Summer Research Fellowship Program in Vision Science. Undergraduates in their junior (3rd) year during the 2015-2016 academic year of baccalaureate studies interested in neuroscience, cognitive science, artificial intelligence, and biomedical science are invited to join the Center for Visual Science for a summer of supervised laboratory training. Applicants will be selected based on academic achievements and an interest in pursuing graduate studies in science.

Our fellowship will cover travel and assist with on-campus housing expenses for non-local students and provide a stipend of $3,820 for a summer of continuous training in a faculty member's lab. Training will also include an orientation, weekly talks from CVS faculty, & a poster session and CVS picnic at summer’s end. Rochester, located near Lake Ontario in western New York, is an internationally recognized center for visual and imaging science and provides a scenic and natural setting for a variety of outdoor activities.

Note: This program is for undergraduate students ONLY. Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows interested in the Center for Visual Science should contact the faculty member(s) who fits their areas of interest directly.

The application form will be posted by early December. Deadline to apply is March 1, 2016. Notifications of acceptance or denial to the program will be sent by March 31, 2016.
