Rhodes/UT Neuroscience Research Fellowship

This fellowship provides an opportunity for students with an interest in the neurosciences to gain extensive research experience at the Neuroscience Institute/Center of Excellence at the University of Tennessee Health Sciences Center, located just 10 minutes from the Rhodes campus.

Students must commit to one summer (12 weeks) of full-time work, as well as 8 to 10 hours per week during the academic year. They will engage in a project that culminates in a formal research report, and students will be required to present their work at regional and/or national meeting. Students will have the opportunity to extend their fellowship for a second summer. Eligible students may conduct Honors Research in their mentor’s lab.

This fellowship is available for students following their second or third year at Rhodes. A campus housing option will be provided with the fellowship during the summer. Preference will be given to students who are interested in extending this experience beyond the one- year commitment.
