Mentor Information

 

MBRS-RISE and MARC U*STAR mentors are the foundation of our student training programs. We are looking for researchers who will provide our trainees with inspiration and encouragement as well as an excellent research experience. Mentors must be performing behavioral, biomedically- or chemically-oriented research and must submit a mentor application. Mentor application will be assessed by the Program Advisory Committee.

Students

When you are seeking a mentor, you need to be aware of two things:

  1. Not all of these people have space in their labs to take a student, even if they are approved by MBRS-RISE or MARC-U*STAR.
  2. PhD students will need to ascertain that the faculty member has means of supporting the day-to-day costs of the research. MBRS-RISE provides money only for your personal financial support and travel; it does not pay for supplies.
