Colleagues and Friends,
I want to make you aware of a paid summer research opportunity for undergraduates that we have at the University of Missouri. We sent out announcements late in the fall but we wanted to bring this opportunity to the attention of those who might have missed our earlier announcement (and remind those who received it at, perhaps, an suboptimal time). With the application deadline quickly approaching we wanted to alert colleagues who know of motivated undergraduates who might be interested.
We offer a 9 week program with a stipend of $3,600 and provide room and board as well. We have an intensive week-long didactic program followed by an 8-week internship in one of our research labs of faculty members in the Department of Psychological Sciences involved in alcohol and addiction research. We are particularly interested in recruiting underrepresented minority students who are interested in psychological research on alcohol use, alcohol use disorder, and addiction but all motivated talented and interested undergraduates are encouraged to apply. This will be the second year of our MU Alcohol Research Training Summer School, MU-ARTSS and, by all accounts, our first year was a great success. We hope to build upon this success in the coming year.
Applications and additional information can be found at:
Applications are due February 15th. I realize this deadline is rapidly approaching but we’d like to reach as many potential applicants as possible.
