2018 program schedule

The Center for Visual Science at the University of Rochester announces its 2019 Summer Research Fellowship Program in Vision Science. Students interested in neuroscience, cognitive science, artificial intelligence, and biomedical science are invited to join the Center for Visual Science for a summer of supervised laboratory training. Applicants will be selected based on academic achievements and an interest in pursuing graduate studies in science. Both US and foreign applications will be accepted.

Our fellowship will cover travel for US citizens and permanent residents (and up to $500 in travel costs for foreign students) and cover the majority of on-campus housing expenses for non-local students in addition to a stipend of $4,054 for a summer of continuous training in a faculty member's lab. Training will also include an orientation, weekly talks from CVS faculty, & a poster session and CVS picnic at summer’s end. Rochester, located near Lake Ontario in western New York, is an internationally recognized center for visual and imaging science and provides a scenic and natural setting for a variety of outdoor activities.

Note: The program is restricted to undergraduate students or recent graduates who have not been accepted to graduate school programs. Successful applicants are typically juniors or seniors who have research experience.

Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows interested in the Center for Visual Science should contact the faculty member(s) who fits their areas of interest directly.
