General Inquiries for Undergraduate Positions in the Gallagher Lab
We are filled for Fall 2018.
Important note for JHU students seeking credit in the lab: 1 credit hour equals 40 hours of work per semester. During a 14-week semester, that equates to nearly 3 hours a week. Therefore 2 credits is 80 hours a semester/6 hours a week, and 3 credits is 120 hours/9 hours a week. Do pay close attention to your independent research requirements (be it in neuroscience or in psychological and brain sciences). We expect that not only will you complete the required amount of hours during the semester, but you are also required to write and submit to Dr. Gallagher’s office a written report per the directions of your major. Since those who sign up under neuroscience are required to get your paper signed by your research supervisor and submitted during your Scientific Communication Exit Session, it is particularly important that you make sure you also formally submit the same paper to Leslie Loving to ensure grading. All final papers are due on the first day of the exam period.
For Visiting Undergraduates:
Follow the instructions above and submit to Leslie Loving for consideration. If selected to perform research in our laboratories you will need to complete a Visiting Student Application, two letters of recommendation and one official transcript. Read instructions and policies for the visiting student process.
For all Homewood volunteers, the following rules apply:
- Each potential volunteer (or their parent) must sign the Risk and Waiver of Liability Form and the Volunteer Application.
- If the volunteer seeks to serve in connection with a high school internship program, he/she is responsible for having his/her school send two letters of recommendation.
- Acceptance of a volunteer is subject to a satisfactory reference check.
- Volunteers aged 18 or over, must also submit to a criminal background check prior to serving in any volunteer capacity*.
- Individuals who had volunteered in the same capacity previously and are now returning, after a six month or longer break in assignment, must again complete the entire process set forth above.
- Volunteers must satisfactorily complete all applicable training and orientation prior to commencing activities at the School. Depending on the nature of the service, training may include, but not be limited to, HIPAA requirements, health and safety, lab protocols, and animal lab requirements**.
- A current volunteer whose duties materially change, or who wishes to commence a new volunteer assignment, must complete all forms and processes set forth above.
- The supervisor, department and/or center are responsible for retaining all forms and documents for a period of five years from the date the volunteer ends his/her assignment.
Review the rules above and submit the Volunteer Application to Leslie Loving for consideration. If selected to perform research in our laboratories you will need to complete the pre-entrance health requirements and provide 2 letters of recommendation and your unofficial transcript.
