Oxford exchangees

HBI-Oxford Summer Research Exchange

The HBI-Oxford Summer Research Exchange supports full-time lab research at the
University of Oxford of up to four months in duration. Oxford's history in the study of neurosciences reaches back to the 17th century, and is particularly strong in imaging and basic neuroscience, linking the function of genes and cells to systems and behaviour.

Exchange participation is competitive and by mutual consent of student and supervisor. In addition to covering travel and accommodation costs, the award provides a stipend of $1,500/month through generous funding by RHISE, Oxford Neuroscience, the University of Calgary BSc Neuroscience program and external sources (e.g. AI-HS).

Deadline for applications for summer 2017 exchanges is October 30, 2016.   Questions can be directed to the Education Coordinator, Jason Ng (jason.ng1@ucalgary.ca).
