In response to the overwhelming interest in our CBS Dean’s Summer Undergraduate Research Opportunities program, the College plans to offer additional opportunities for both fall 2021 and spring 2022. The CBS Dean’s Office will be providing funds for approximately 20 students per semester to conduct research in faculty labs. Students selected to participate in this program will be paid $15 per hour for up to 20 hours per week for up to 14 weeks each semester. We will be prioritizing CBS students who are rising seniors and have not had a previous research experience.
We are seeking faculty who would be willing to serve as mentors in this new program. All CBS faculty, including Medical School faculty in the joint departments, are eligible to participate. Selected students will be assigned faculty mentors depending on their statements of general interest. Faculty will be expected to serve as mentors for the students that are assigned to them.
Please fill out the following Google form by August 2, 2021 if you are interested to participate. The form will ask you for a brief description of the project the student would work on.
