SURP - Summer Undergraduate Research Program
Note: SURP 2024 is on hold while we wait for confirmation of a grant renewal which funds the program. We will keep this space updated when and if we are able to start accepting applications for 2024.
About: The Center for Neural Science hosts a Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP) for undergraduates with a strong interest in neuroscience. This program is designed to foster entry into a neuroscience research-centered career. Students apply for positions in a 10-week summer program during which they actively participate in research projects in the laboratories of New York University science faculty. We match students to laboratories primarily on the basis of their background preparation and areas of interest. Participants work either directly with faculty or with graduate students or postdoctoral fellows. Each student conducts a research project under the direction of his or her mentor. The students are involved in all phases of the research process from experimental design to data analysis and communication of results. At the end of the program, the students each give a presentation of their own work at a summer research conference. The first week of SURP includes a "bootcamp" to accelerate the learning of lab skills specific to neural science.
