Mortensen Travel Awards of up to $500 per student per academic year are available for undergraduate psychology majors who are presenting a poster or paper at an undergraduate research conference or professional psychological conference. Awards are granted on a rolling basis until the available funds are exhausted. Information and application materials are available at http://psych.umn.edu/ugrad/mortensen/travelandresearch.html. Please encourage eligible undergraduates to apply!
New Room Scheduling System
The University has replaced their old room scheduling system (R25) with Astra Schedule. To view room options within Elliott Hall, click here. Rooms will either have a link to Astra Schedule (which you must use to schedule that room), a link to a Google form, or contact information for a Psychology staff member who will reserve the room for you. The room scheduling page also contains a guide to using Astra Schedule. If you have questions, please contact the Central Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or (612) 625-2818.
If you plan to offer anyone a volunteer appointment within our Department, please inform Guillermo De Paz or Heidi Wolff. Due to University legality issues, completion of forms, and in some cases a background check, is required before volunteers may start work. The process – which Guillermo or Heidi will help you with – is detailed at http://cla.umn.edu/intranet/hr/VolunteerAgreements.php
Andrew Oxenham's lab is part of the Auditory Cognitive Neuroscience (ACN) network that has been selected for a second time for the European Union's Erasmus Mundus scheme – http://www.uni-leipzig.de/~acn/ – to facilitate exchanges of PhD students and postdocs between European and North American labs. The funding is designed to support stays of between 1 and 10 months in partner labs on the other side of the Atlantic.
