The Department of Molecular & Integrative Physiology at the University of Michigan offers summer undergraduate research fellowships to support undergraduate students that are interested in research in physiology and/or biomedical sciences.
Any student who is currently enrolled at any degree granting University or College is invited to apply, with preference given to those students interested in a career in research. Each student will be matched, based on their interests, to a laboratory led by a faculty member of the Department of Molecular & Integrative Physiology. This collection of laboratories is involved in nationally recognized research, in topics such as in topics such as hormones and signal transduction, ageing, obesity and diabetes, reproduction and circadian rhythms including sleep, gastrointestinal physiology including digestive diseases, and many aspects of cardiovascular disease.
The stipend for 2014 will be $4200 for twelve weeks of full-time work from May 27 to August 15. The start and end date of the fellowship may be change to accommodate overlap with academic year at home institution, if necessary. The laboratory hands-on research is completed with a weekly seminar series with presentations on responsible conduct of research, career advice and couching, and how loss of physiological regulation leads to diseases. There will be a research forum at the end of the summer in which fellows will present their work, as well as opportunities to attend research seminars throughout the summer.
