Preview Weekend for our NSF-funded Integrated Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT) program on November 6-7, 2015

Post date: Sep 9, 2015 2:30:25 AM

All expenses are covered for students to come to Minnesota in November 2015 and learn about our IGERT program, University of Minnesota, and the Twin-Cities. Application deadline is September 18, 2015.

We provide 2-year training fellowships in systems neuroengineering for students (U.S. citizens or permanent residents) who pursue a Ph.D. at the University of Minnesota in any of these four programs: Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or Neuroscience. We are holding this event to encourage students to apply to and start one of these Ph.D. programs in Fall of 2016, and to be awarded a prestigious IGERT fellowship. Research thrust areas of training include neural decoding/imaging, neural interfacing, and neuromodulation, broadly defined. Additional research assistantships and teaching assistantships will be available to the trainees in addition to the two years of traineeship. A major highlight of the program is that students have the unique opportunity to closely interact with the local medical device industry in the Twin Cities in pushing new neural technologies towards clinical applications.
