This internship will provide you with essential skills and knowledge to become a successful neuroscience researcher. It will also provide you with the knowledge and understanding of performing literature reviews in neuroscience and neuroimaging. To stay competitive in the field of neuroscience, universities and organizations need experienced neuroscience experts with research skills and an understanding of cutting-edge neuroimaging and research methods. This 4-week internship is designed to equip you with knowledge in neuroscience research. It will train you to perform research in an international research environment.
Through the 4-week virtual internship, you’ll gain the knowledge and skills required to participate in neuroscience research. It aims to provide essential knowledge for developing your early research career.
The online distance-learning internship will provide opportunities to receive expertise from the Cambridge Centre for Innovation and Development (CamCID) researchers. This internship includes four weeks of research-based tasks.
During the first week of your research internship, you will gain experience in literature reviewing and finding articles using research databases and search engines.
You will gain knowledge of writing your research proposal. You will develop your research idea in week 2 and learn to develop a research plan for your own idea.
In week 3, you will learn to perform data analysis and statistical analysis in research. You will be given different research tasks to perform data analysis.
You will work on a short literature review project and apply your knowledge of neuroscience and neuroimaging in your project. The project aims to improve your academic writing, research, critical thinking, and literature search skills.
UK and International: £179 (including electronic certificate fee).
A minimum of 6 months of education in cell biology, psychology, neuroscience, biochemistry, or other relevant areas is recommended. Alternatively, you can acquire the minimum qualification by successfully completing our PCert - Neuroscience and Neuroimaging Research.
The mentioned qualification requirement is for guidance and it is required to successfully complete the virtual internship. All our online training and courses are taught in English. You must have good English language skills.
This virtual internship is designed to aid professional development in the field of neuroscience and neuroimaging, enabling you to further your expertise within an existing career path or to change career direction, for example, into a neuroscience expert.
After successfully completing all the tasks of 4 weeks, you will be provided with an e-certificate for completing a virtual internship at Cambridge Centre for Innovation and Development (CamCID).
This virtual internship is delivered on Moodle Learning platform with mentorship support provided during the tasks.
It is designed by the CamCID Research Team (graduates and researchers from multiple high-ranked universities).
