MESA Internship Opportunity: Neural Engineering in Illinois

Summer Internship in Neural Engineering (SINE)
SINE allows undergraduate students to work in an innovative, progressive, fast paced scientific environment where they will be exposed to traditional techniques in molecular biology, advances in computer science, new theories in mathematics and mechanical-, electrical- and biomedical engineering applications. Students learn the ins and outs of research designed to improve our understanding of the mechanisms of neural injury and recovery, promote greater recovery and provide accessible technology to the temporary and permanently disabled.

Accepted students are provided with funding for travel, housing and a small ($3,500) stipend. 

Application information can be found at:

Minority students, women, the disabled and students from institutions with under-represented scientific research programs are strongly encouraged to apply.

If you have any questions, please contact Danielle M. Kerkovich, Ph.D., Associate Director for Research: (312) 238-1477 or by email at

Emailed applications are due on or before March 31, 2008.
