Summer Undergraduate Research Program

Summer Undergraduate Research Program in Molecular and Quantitative & Computational Biology

Summer ResearchJUNE 8-August 7, 2015

Princeton Students

Overview

Each summer, the Department of Molecular Biology, Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics, the Genentech Foundation and the New Jersey Commission on Cancer Research provide intensive laboratory research experiences to a select group of undergraduates chosen from a nationwide pool. Each student joins a world-class research group—headed by a Faculty member and carries out an original research project. Participants are immersed in a culture of close collaboration with other undergraduates, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty, and thereby experience first-hand what it is like to be a scientist. Other highlights of the program include:

  • research discussion groups (learn to analyze and present data)
  • faculty forum (attend weekly seminars given by Princeton Faculty)
  • poster session (present your research to respected scientists)
  • career forums (interact with former program participants)

Over 77% of former participants have since pursued degrees in PhD, MD, or combined MD/PhD programs.

Questions? Please feel free to contact the Program Director, Dr. Alison Gammie.

For Visiting Students

In addition to receiving a stipend, students are provided with housing in Princeton dormitories and are reimbursed for traveling expenses within budgetary limits.

We encourage applications from research-oriented undergraduates (1) whose participation will add to the diversity of researchers in the sciences, or (2) whose interests lie at the boundary between biology and the computational sciences including physics, chemistry, computer science and engineering, or (3) who are from institutions that do not have large research programs. Applicants must be current undergraduates, US citizens, permanent residents, or foreign undergraduates attending a US educational institution.

Interested students should submit an online application by February 1, 2015.
The application will be available October 1, 2014.”
