Dear researchers, Brain Awareness Montreal is currently looking for labs to host summer students (high school & CEGEP) for a week in either July or August as part of our Summer Internship Program for aspiring neuroscientists. We are looking for undergraduate, PhD, Master’s students, or research assistants in your labs to act as supervisors for these students. Please find below a message from our internship coordinator Léa Gagnon. Attached, you will also find a power point with further information and a promotional poster.

Please feel free to contact us at with any questions or comments. 

Your help is greatly appreciated both by us and the future scientists involved in our program. 

Thank you for your time and assistance, Jacqueline  Volunteer Recruitment Coordinator BAW/ CeT 2014
