Undergraduate students interested in alcohol and addiction research are invited to apply to the University of Missouri’s Alcohol Research Training Summer School & Internship (MU-ARTSS). This program, funded by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), is now in its second year. MU-ARTSS offers students a week-long introductory course on alcohol research followed by an 8-week research internship with a MU-ARTSS professor.
Participants will benefit from career development and graduate preparation seminars and trainings led by University of Missouri (MU) pre-doctoral, postdoctoral researchers, and faculty. Students will also have the opportunity to present their work with a poster at the Summer MU Undergraduate Research & Creative Achievements Forum, where over 100 undergraduate students from around the country will gather as part of the larger MU Summer Undergraduate Research Program.
MU-ARTSS offers participants access to a wide array of expertise on alcohol and addiction from the Department of Psychological Sciences at MU, including research on genetics, social neuroscience, behavioral epidemiology, and neurophysiology.
The program will provide participants a $3,600 stipend, one hour of academic credit from MU, and room and board. Students will be responsible for travel costs.
