Undergraduate Summer Research at University of Minnesota

The University of Minnesota is now accepting applicants for their 2019 Lando Summer Undergraduate Research Program.

Working with some of the top chemists in their fields, you will be actively engaged in research aimed at solving some of society’s most important environmental, health, and energy issues. Research in the department is collaborative and interdisciplinary. There are opportunities to participate in multi-disciplinary, collaborative research centers and initiatives.

As a researcher, you will:

  • conduct biomedical, medical, pharmaceutical, and materials research
  • have access to state-of-the-art equipment and technology
  • share your research as authors of papers published in prestigious scientific journals, at conferences, and at poster sessions

Each Chemistry Summer Research Fellow will receive a stipend of approximately $7400 to perform research over 10 weeks under direction of a chemistry faculty member on the Minneapolis campus of the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. The program also includes weekly lunches with faculty, a poster session, and various professional and social events. All fellows will be given the opportunity to live on campus for the duration of the program at a cost of approximately $1900.

Program dates are June 3-August 9, 2019. All appointments will be made within the time frame of June-August, with the first Monday in June reserved as a move-in day. Therefore, all travel arrangements may be made accordingly. If you require housing for a short period of time before the program commences or after the program has concluded, please contact the program director:
