2017 Summer Research Fellowship
About the BYB Summer Fellowship
The Backyard Brains Summer Fellowship program is an intensive 10 week program for undergraduates to participate in hands-on neuroscience research and experiment design. This is our 4the year of running the program and will run from May 22, 2017 to Aug 4, 2017. We have renamed this experience from internship to fellowship as we have found our relationship lasts much longer than one summer. We publish papers, present posters, and lead workshops long after the summer is over. We feel "Research Fellows" is a better way to describe our relationship.

All participants will be working on independent research projects, much like a graduate school laboratory. No experience is necessary! We will train you each step of the way! We just need your creativity, professionalism and curiosity.

Each day begins with a lab meeting where we will discuss data and other items from the previous day. We will have journal clubs to go over key papers, and you will be trained how to develop your own experiments and to build your own devices to perform those experiments. You will be collecting data, and analyzing and presenting your results.

The end result of your summer fellowship will be a publishable experiment and video for our website, as well as a poster to be delivered at Undergraduate Research Poster Session of the Society of Neuroscience. We have also worked with students to continue refining their manuscripts into first-authored peer-reviewed publications. After the fellowship, we even send former participants around the world to give talks and present demos. We are really looking forward to working with our new fellows!
