Educational Advancement and Professional Development Opportunities

Global Engagement of Doctoral Education-Rackham GEDE

Our most recent collaboration with Tel Aviv University was a Research Symposium. Symposiums typically follow a program as shown:

Trinity College/University of Michigan Initiative 

Sagol School of Neuroscience, Tel Aviv University, Israel

This initiative is supported by funding through Rackham Global Engagement of Doctoral Education.  Central to developed partnerships is graduate student research exchanges.  

Trinity College School of Medicine is involved in a great number of research programs across multiple disciplines. The school offers great opportunities for postgraduate students. The research focuses on neuroscience, cancer, population health, and infection & immunity. For more information on the initiative and how to get involved view the website below.

International Program for the Advancement of Neurotechnology-IPAN

Summer Bootcamp-Research for Undergraduates Program-Research Exchange Program

Developing neurotechnology to study the brain is a long-term mission that will be active for many decades and perhaps even centuries from now. Educating the next generation of neuroscientists and engineers in novel ways is one of IPAN's primary missions. Attracting and retaining more science and technology majors in this exciting area of research is an important opportunity for us all. Each of our programs will benefit in the short-term from the fresh international perspectives that the students will bring to the research effort, while the entire scientific community will benefit long-term from the investment in next-generation thought leaders./sites/default/files/public/sites/default/files/siteeditoruploads/TAU-UM%20Partnership%20Call.docx

National Science Foundation Partnerships for International Research and Education-PIRE

Partnerships for International Research and Education (PIRE) is an NSF-wide program that supports international activities across all NSF supported disciplines. The primary goal of PIRE is to support high quality projects in which advances in research and education could not occur without international collaboration. PIRE seeks to catalyze a higher level of international engagement in the U.S. science and engineering community.

Gordon Research Conferences

The GRS aims to bring together graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education in a highly stimulating and non-intimidating environment to discuss their current research and build informal networks that may lead to a lifetime of collaboration and scientific achievement. The deadline to submit an abstract and be considered for oral presentation will vary depending on the conference. For more information on GRS visit their website.
