To protect the health of the people we serve, Burke Neurological Institute has temporarily paused student applications and enrollment in Summer Science Research Program and Student Volunteer opportunities. At this time, Burke Neurological Institute is only offering lessons to high school students for the Introduction to Neuroscience via online webinars. Science across the Institute is prospering as we slowly reopen the Institute and work remotely analyzing data, writing papers, and applying for new funding sources. As we practice social distancing, we assure you: we are with you.
Hope starts with you.

Introduction to Neuroscience
This twice weekly, online evening course is an ideal introduction to neuroscience for highly motivated High School students.
The research assistant experience provides individuals who have recently completed or expected to complete a BS degree with a full-time program of research engagement under the guidance of a supervising faculty mentor.
The Research Technician will carry out essential research support functions in the laboratory conducting work primarily focused on mouse genetics, molecular biology and tissue analysis, as well as mouse behavior, and cell culture.
A critical part of the mission of Burke Neurological Institute is to foster and cultivate a pool of talented young scientists, clinicians, and clinician-scientists who will lead the next generation in research studies on repair and rehabilitation of the nervous system. The Institute is a leader in utilizing innovative scientific approaches to develop regenerative strategies to combat neurological disability and is academically affiliated with Weill Cornell Medicine. The Institute provides a unique and beautiful setting for both postdoctoral fellows and students to participate in cutting-edge neurorehabilitation and neuroscience research.
