Summer Research Opportunities

Summer Research Opportunities

 

On-Campus

SURE is the Summer Undergraduate Research Experience that allows students to work with faculty on research projects in chemistry, biochemistry, biology, physics, geology, and mathematics.

 

Off-Campus

Brandeis University

The Undergraduate Summer Research Program is a ten-week program in which students carry out independent research projects in the labs of Brandeis science facilities along side Brandeis faculty.

 

Cornell University

New York Agricultural Experiment Station in Geneva, New York offers a Summer Research Scholars Program where undergraduate students have the opportunity to participate in exciting research projects within one of four disciplines including Plant Pathology and Plant-Microbe Biology, Entomology, Food Science, and Horticulture. Student interns will have the opportunity to work with faculty, their graduate students and postdocs on research projects that can be laboratory or field-based.

In addition to this research opportunity, Cornell also offers two other Summer Programs:

  • Weill Cornell Graduate School of Medical Sciences

    The ACCESS Summer Research Program is offering a Summer Internship Program for Underserved College Students. The aim of the internship is to awaken and foster an interest in biomedical research and education. It is open to students who are interested in getting a Ph.D. degree and who have excelled in their sophomore or junior years in college.

  • Weill Cornell Medical College

    The Travelers Summer Research Fellowship Program for Premedical Students is an opportunity which gives 25 premedical students deeper insights into the field of medicine, including issues that greatly affect the health of traditionally underserved groups. Through the experiences of laboratory or clinical research, the student learns how one pursues a specific research problem under the supervision of a faculty member, thus providing an early education into basic research techniques that could be applicable to any area of medicine.

 

Eugene and Ruth Roberts Summer Student Academy

The Academy is offering a summer biomedical research opportunity for undergraduates to get hands-on experience in research. Summer students work closely with post-doctorates, graduate students, and lab personnel of the Irell & Manella Graduate School of Biological Science.

 

Leadership Alliance

The Summer Research Early Identification Program (SR-EIP) offers undergraduates, interested in pursuing a Ph.D. or MD/Ph.D., the opportunity to work for eight to ten weeks under the guidance of a faculty or research mentor at a participating Alliance institution. This all expense paid summer internship provides students with a competitive stipend, travel, and housing.

 

NIDDK Diversity Summer Research Training Program (DSRTP) for Undergraduate Students

The DSRTP Program provides an independent summer research experience at NIH laboratories to undergraduate students from groups under-represented in biomedical science or disadvantaged backgrounds who are interested in research careers.

 

University of North Carolina Charlotte

The NanoSURE REU Program is designed to advance nanoscale science re-search at the under-graduate level and contribute to the education and training of the nanotechnology workforce of the future. Nanoscale science research faculty from the Departments of Chemistry, Biology, Physics and Optical Science, and Mechanical Engineering, and Engineering Science will provide well defined projects related to nanoscale science for all participants. A ten-week summer research experience is offered and includes a stipend for summer research, allowance for research supplies, on-campus housing, seminars and workshop activities, recreational activities, and a final research symposium.

 

U.S Department of Energy

The SULI program is sponsored and managed by the DOE Office of Science's, Office of Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists (WDTS) in collaboration with the DOE laboratories. Applications for the SULI program are solicited annually for three separate internship terms. Internship appointments are 10 weeks in duration for the Summer Term (May through August) or 16 weeks in duration for the Fall (August through December) and Spring (January through May) Terms. Each DOE laboratory offers different research opportunities; not all DOE laboratories offer internships during the Fall and Spring Terms.
