SCIENTIFIC INITIATION IN IMMUNOLOGY TUTORIAL PROGRAM
This program had its first version in 2007, year in which the World Congress of Immunology took place in Rio de Janeiro. It was reactivated in 2018, and it targets undergraduate students willing to profit the most from our annual meeting.
HOW IT WORKS
Undergraduate students have an exclusive room where they meet each morning (and in the
intervals of the conferences) with their tutors, who are doctoral students or postdoctoral fellows pre-selected for this function. Tutors discuss the subjects from the conferences with the students, discussing their doubts and increasing the comprehension of the subject, often too specialized for the beginners. Besides the tutorial activity per se, conversations with invited scientists take place at lunchtime. These conversations bring to the group of youngsters another dimension of a scientist’s human and professional development, difficulties, successes and the diversity of trajectories, choices, and motivations.
Applicants must send the following documents:
- a letter justifying their interest in the activity (no longer than half a page);
- CV Lattes;
- copy of the abstract submitted to the SBI Meeting 2019
A total of 5 tutors (PhD students or post-docs) and 20 undergraduate students will be selected for this activity.
Applications will be sent by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
