      • Neuroscience Research Award

        Interested in Brain and Behavior?  The Interdisciplinary neuroscience minor is currently awarding $1000.00 awards for research in neuroscience. The program will provide students with the opportunity to participate and assist in the ongoing research of faculty performing neuroscience related research.  Projects may be mentored by any faculty performing neuroscience related research that is approved by the Interdisciplinary Neuroscience Minor Director. Awardees must declare a minor in neuroscience and sign up for a Directed Study Course (Ney 491 series). Students are expected to work at least for about 8 hrs/week in full semesters. Students will be selected through a competitive application process and must identify and contact a mentor to apply. The application deadline for Fall is October 12, 2016. Awards may be used to fund projects in Fall or Spring. Applicant will be notified around October 19, 2016 in time for advising and registration.

      • New Doctoral Program

        There is a brand new doctoral program that allows high-achieving students to perform their thesis work with world-renowned researchers within our institution. The program is unique in that it is designed for students who have demonstrated research potential in their undergrad to complete their PhD in 5 years with a heavy translational component that puts a human face on the coursework - they will be pairing each student with a clinician so that they can follow St. Jude patients throughout their first year. Applications are now being accepted for our PhD in Biomedical Sciences program (inaugural class will begin Fall 2017), and they would love to come to University of Mississippi to recruit students interested in graduate studies in the biomedical sciences. If you're interested, you can contact Racquel (the assistant dean of the Graduate School at St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital) Racquel.Collins@stjude.org
