The Cancer Research – Scholarship and Training in Population Sciences (C-STEPS) program at University of New Mexico (UNM) provides a cancer-focused research experience, career mentorship, interactive seminars, and team building that culminate in a Capstone project at the end of 10 weeks.
C-STEPS scholars have the opportunity to work directly with UNM faculty and their teams to explore research and careers in Cancer Control and Population Sciences during the 10-week summer program. C-STEPS provides scholars with hands-on, skills-based research experiences across the cancer continuum, from prevention to survivorship. These activities help scholars meet graduate and medical school goals.
The session is TOMORROW, November 8, from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM EST via Zoom. Register here.
About BCBD: The BCDB program is a cross-disciplinary training program that encourages and fosters innovative thinking and experimentation. Program faculty members are drawn from 15 departments within Emory University to provide training in Biochemistry, Cell Biology, Development, Molecular Biology, Structural Biology, Cancer Biology, and allied areas of research. The program uses formalized training in scientific research, presentation, writing, hypothesis design, and teaching to enable students to integrate diverse biological disciplines. Students graduate as well-rounded biomedical research scientists who are highly competitive in a number of different career paths.
The Chemistry-Biology Interface (CBI) Graduate Program at Johns Hopkins University provides students with research and academic training that enables them to challenge the traditional boundaries separating chemistry from biology. Students completing the CBI program receive a Ph.D. in Chemical Biology. Previous graduates have gained employment in commercial, government and academic institutions.
The CBI Program brings together 32 faculty from the Schools of Arts & Sciences, Engineering, Public Health, and Medicine at Johns Hopkins and provides a diverse selection of research projects for students. To assist them in choosing a research advisor, first year CBI students participate in three 10-week research rotations that enable them to broaden their research skills and make informed choices of research advisors.
Since its establishment in 2005, the CBI Program has received an enthusiastic response and has grown to over 35 current Ph.D. students. To date, ~15% of CBI students are from groups historically underrepresented in Chemistry and Biology. Hopkins is very interested in increasing the number of students from these backgrounds. Hopkins is a very supportive institution and Baltimore is a multi-cultural city. The University has a number of mechanisms to support minority graduate students.
RISE (Research Internships in Science and Engineering) Germany offers an incredible opportunity for sophomores and juniors to participate in a summer research internship at top German universities and research institutions.
What is the DAAD-RISE program?
Students are matched with a German host university or institute according to their area of interest (chemistry, biology, etc). DAAD provides students a monthly stipend for three months to help cover living expenses. Host universities, universities of applied sciences (UAS), and institutes provide housing assistance. UAS will also match students with Ph.D. student mentors or researchers. Knowledge of German language is NOT REQUIRED. The working language will be English.
Who is eligible?
Undergraduate students who:
are currently enrolled in biology, chemistry, computer science, physics, earth sciences, or engineering (or a closely related field)
have completed at least 2 years of a undergraduate degree program by the time of the internship placement
can prove that they will maintain undergraduate status after the internship has taken place
Because of these eligibility requirements, usually current sophomores and juniors apply.
Through SULI, undergraduate students discover science and technology careers at the DOE national laboratories and gain the experience needed to transition from internship to employment. Interns work directly with national laboratory scientists and engineers, assisting them on research or technology projects that support the DOE mission.
SULI is open to full-time students attending four-year institutions and community colleges, or recent graduates within two years of receiving their bachelor’s degree. The program is stipend-based and offered three times annually in Fall, Spring, and Summer terms.
On December 5, 2022, from 3:00 – 4:00pm EST, there will be a workshop which highlights the research opportunities and internship experience at the DOE national labs. Register here.
SULI application requirements and guidelines are available here. Applications are due January 10, 2023, at 5:00 p.m. EST
Carbon dioxide removal (CDR) plays a critical role in helping the United States address the current climate crisis, as well as achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. The Department of Energy (DOE) launched the Carbon Negative Shot to advance the development of the emerging and necessary carbon dioxide removal industry. The Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) facilitated the DOE Carbon Negative Shot Summit in July 2022 to increase collaboration on this effort. Despite the many efforts that have been made so far toward CDR, there is still a lot of work to be done.
To continue that work, ORISE is hosting a research-based challenge for undergraduate students. The challenge is for students to develop an infographic to communicate the current leading ways to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Thorough submissions will include research on at least four current carbon dioxide removal methods, as well as research on new developments in carbon dioxide removal. Your infographic could win you a $5,000 scholarship!
The deadline for this competition is Wednesday, November 30, 2022. Winners will be announced in late December.
