Supervised Research, Spring 2012
MBB 90r is an individual research tutorial. You arrange the tutorial yourself, identifying a faculty member who will serve as your research supervisor for a project related to her/his research program. To identify labs or faculty, you may consult this website’s Research Opportunities section or contact Shawn Harriman in the Mind/Brain/Behavior office, faculty advisors in MBB tracks, and the MBB Board of Faculty Advisors.
Your work in this course will be determined by your research supervisor, and usually entails regular weekly hours in her/his laboratory or research program. You will be expected to e-mail a one-page progress report to the Mind/Brain/Behavior Office (email@example.com) by Tuesday, February 28th. At the end of the semester you will submit a completed research report to your supervisor and to the Mind/Brain/Behavior Offices by Thursday, May 3rd. Your grade will be based on your work in the lab and on your written reports.
To enroll in the course, you should e=mail Shawn Harriman (firstname.lastname@example.org) to receive an application. Shawn can also answer any questions you may have about the course, and will provide submission instructions. Once your application is submitted and reviewed, you will be e-mailed instructions for getting your study card signed. (Your research supervisor should not sign your study card.)
Spring 2012 applications should be submitted by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, January 25th. This deadline is for putting the course on your Study Card, as our faculty need to review your application and we need to sign your Study Card. We are also willing to accept applications after Study Card Day, as we know it can take several days to finalize details for research projects. For very late applications, keep in mind that the add/drop deadline is February 20th and we will need several days review time before that.
