Oportunidad de internado o cursos en el prestigioso Riken Brain Science Institute en Tokyo.
Para estudiantes graduados o postdocs.
El deadline para las solicitudes es Febrero 28, 2009
The RIKEN Brain Science Institute (RIKEN BSI), located just outside Tokyo, Japan, offers a summer program to train advanced students interested in brain function. Applicants may choose either a two-month laboratory internship (Plan A) within a RIKEN BSI laboratory, or participate in an intensive 11-day lecture course (Plan B) featuring a distinguished international faculty. Those participating in the internship may also enroll in the lecture course.
Typically, around 45 international students are accepted to the Summer Program each year. Attendees have wide-ranging academic backgrounds and are usually enrolled in graduate courses, or have recently embarked on postdoctoral research. However, candidates holding other positions are encouraged to apply.
Attendees usually reside on/near the RIKEN campus, where they have ample opportunity to interact with invited lecturers, other attendees and RIKEN BSI researchers. Students unable to provide their own financial support will be considered for travel and accommodation bursaries provided by RIKEN BSI.
