The Center for Neuroscience & Society has established an Undergraduate Fellows Program, in which a small group of highly motivated juniors and seniors explore the interface of neuroscience and society through reading, discussing, attending talks and writing. This year the program was launched with Hilary Gerstein as its Director. (For more information see our website in progress: https://neuroethics.upenn.edu/education/undergraduate-fellows/)
For the coming academic year we would like to add a Senior Fellow in Neuroscience & Society to the team – a graduate student who can work with Hilary on all phases of the Undergraduate Fellows program. The Senior Fellow would assist in running our bimonthly group seminar discussions, finding approachable literature for students to read, and critiquing students as they learn how to write literature reviews. We estimate a time commitment of about 2-3 hrs/week in the Fall Semester and 4-5 hrs/week in the Spring Semester. Compensation for this position is $30/hr. In addition to being paid for your work, you would expand your knowledge of the societal impact of neuroscience, and you would gain experience in advising, teaching, and mentoring undergraduates.
Interested? Please send a CV and a brief statement of your experience and interest in outreach and education to firstname.lastname@example.org and please include “Senior Fellow” in the subject line.
