Description:
The Center for the Integrative Study of Animal Behavior (CISAB), invites ten talented undergraduates to Bloomington, Indiana to work with IU faculty on individualized research projects in animal behavior that involve neuroscience, cognitive science, and molecular approaches as well as traditional fieldwork and behavioral analysis.

It offers talented undergraduates a unique opportunity to conduct key research and gain valuable skills while exploring career opportunities in the sciences.

During the first 2 weeks, interns divide their time between group training activities and their home labs. Group training activities include research seminar presentations, hands-on training in field and lab techniques, a trip behind the scenes at the Indianapolis Zoo, and a workshop on research ethics.

For the remainder of the summer, students conduct individual research projects under the guidance of their mentors, preparing final presentations of the results.
