Resident members are assigned a workstation within the Institute’s collaborative workspace, where they have the benefit of working in close proximity of other students, Institute postdocs, and faculty members. They are typically involved with a research project run by a core faculty member of the Institute.
Resident Members are expected to be present in the Institute at least three days per week. They are provided with staff and IT support, access to a shared printer, and (if desired) a desktop computer.
The community of scholars working within the Institute benefit from social engagement via regularly held coffee breaks, some hosted in conjunction with members of the Brain and Mind Institute, and the presence of visiting fellows and guest speakers. The Institute also holds reading hours two days a week to provide time for quiet, distraction-free working.
