Research Internships

Due to limited lab capacity, the Cognitive Neuroscience Lab can only host a small number of interns each year. Interns join a vibrant research team for a minimum of 3 months, supporting ongoing experiments in the course of learning about research in cognitive neuroscience.

To ensure a good fit with the lab, we only consider candidates who demonstrate a keen interest in scientific enquiry, who are independent, who are self-funded, and who can commit to the lab for at least 3 months. Past interns have come mainly from pre- or mid-programme medical courses, engineering or from upper-year psychology courses.

If you are interested in applying, please send your curriculum vitae, a statement of research interests and your plans for future development to Dr. Ong Ju Lynn at at .

(Note: As our lab is a basic science lab, our research internship is not suitable for candidates looking for direct clinical- or counselling-related experience.)


 Graduate Student Positions

We are looking for students with a good background in engineering mathematics or statistics who have an interest in developing cross disciplinary skills in cognitive neuroscience. These persons will eventually work on the analysis of functional and structural brain imaging data or human electrophysiological data.

Candidates please send your curriculum vitae, a statement of research interests and two letters of recommendation to Dr. Michael Chee at
michael.chee at .


A-Level Research Project Interviews

As our lab receives numerous requests for interviews each year, we recommend that interested students first go through material listed on our website (publications, news archives, educational articles, research links). We will only entertain requests from parties that have demonstrated significant initiative – have some background knowledge in the topic proposed as well as able to build on ideas and issues previously raised.
