February 25, 2016

Summer Program in Neuroscience, Ethics & Survival (SPINES)

SPINES is a four-week long course at the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL), aimed at graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and early career faculty, with the purpose of increasing success in research careers in neuroscience. SPINES has been taught at the MBL for over 20 years.

Course Date: June 12 – July 11, 2016

Deadline: February 25, 2016 | Apply here

Directors: Keith Trujillo, California State University San Marcos; Jean King, University of Massachusetts Medical School; and Edward Castañeda, University of Texas at El Paso

The core of the program is an intensive one-month experience that exposes trainees to neuroscience research, ethics and professional development opportunities including grant writing, teaching, public speaking, and work/family balance, and science related careers. In a second optional month, students may apply to work full time in a research laboratory at the MBL. This program is supported by a grant from the National Institute of Mental Health that covers tuition, room and board, and travel for all enrolled students. The SPINES course is targeted to groups underrepresented in neuroscience to increase the probability of professional success, although applications from any qualified students are welcome.
