About the Brain Sciences Foundation:
The Brain Sciences Foundation (BSF) is a not-for profit private multidisciplinary research foundation dedicated to developing novel paradigms that enable the study of mind and brain and ultimately the treatment of neurological disorders. BSF aims to initiate exchange between a wide range of scientific disciplines concerned with the understanding of brain function and dysfunction. Our goal is to establish a vibrant community of expert scientists, gathered in the Brain Sciences Foundation Fellowship, to study the origins of human cognition and intelligence and conduct revolutionary research to be materialized into new treatment strategies for neurological disorders. BSF works closely with Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Oxford University, Boston University, and many other top academic institutions around the world as well as commercial partners. The Brain Sciences Foundation participates in multi-million dollar projects researching new early detection and diagnostic technologies and treatment strategies for neurological disorders including Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, traumatic brain injury and autism. BSF's grant team is actively looking for and applying to new funding opportunities to advance our research initiatives and find cures for currently incurable conditions.
The grant-writing Intern will learn and be involved in every aspect of grant activities. From researching new funding opportunities, to grant writing and everything in between. The intern will work directly with the grant team, research scientists and administrators in order to write and submit winning grant proposals. Interns should work for the length of a semester or summer, dedicating 10-20 hours per week. This is an unpaid internship, with the potential to advance to a paid position. Internship can be virtual or location based in Providence, RI.
The opportunity is open to undergraduate students, graduate students, and alumni who have performed well academically and maintained at least a 3.0 GPA. Concentration in life sciences, particularly neuroscience, cognitive science or psychology is preferred. Previous experience with grant writing is a plus. Applicants should have:
