I'm applying for a reserach internship at a company at which I just finished a software internship.
I also want to go to grad school to get a Master's degree in computational neuroscience.
Does anyone have experience with where the legal boundaries are for this? The company obviously has private intellectual property that I might be working with, and I'm concerned that working with them would put me under non-disclosure agreements that would conflict with my research interests.
How separate should the things I research at the internship be with what I plan to study at university be? Should I just avoid taking on an a research internship?
