Volunteer Internship

The Neuroscape volunteer internship program offers a rich environment with hands-on experience in translational neuroscience research. We have had hundreds of successful interns train with us.

Our interns are involved in either technology development or scientific research at different stages, from data collection to analysis. This is a unique opportunity to work with a world-class team and gain experience with a wide variety of cutting-edge research methods and emerging technologies.

This program is not for high school students. We have a separate summer internship program for high school students that accepts applications in February.

If you are interested in volunteering with us please complete the application form. If one of our research programs is actively recruiting volunteers, you will be contacted by email by a study coordinator.

Summer 2018 Program Details

We are excited to announce that we are bringing back the summer high school internship program for a second year. Students interested in cognitive neuroscience or technology will have a unique opportunity to volunteer with UCSF researchers and observe science in action. We will select a few exceptional, motivated students for the summer 2018 program. There will be a combination of observational and hands-on experiences. You will be supervised by a member of our research team. We look forward to meeting you.
