Undergraduate students with an interest in biology will have an opportunity to experience scientific research first-hand by joining a research laboratory group in MCDB this summer. No previous research experience is required. Students will participate directly in a research project, as part of a team of scientists, learning new ideas and skills fundamental to biological science.
Student interns are expected to commit to a full-time schedule, which could include one spring-summer class. In addition to their research project, interns will participate in program activities designed to introduce them to career opportunities in science.
Eligibility (one or more of the following):
- come from an educational, cultural or geographic background that is underrepresented in the scientific field of biology
- have experienced financial hardship as a result of family economic circumstances;
- are a first-generation U.S. citizen/resident or are the first generation in their family to attend a four-year college.
As many as 4 internships will be available. Preference will be given to rising sophomores and juniors.
Stipend: $5,000 for 12 weeks between dates of May 5-August 15.
Deadline: March 1, 2021
