The application deadline is 11:59 P.M. (ET) Tuesday, January 31, 2023. More information and how to apply can be found here. A flyer providing information can be viewed here. Any questions can be sent to CRISSP@chop.edu.
Are you looking for a summer program that integrates research and clinical care? If so, please consider applying for the NIH funded SUPER Summer Program at Nationwide Children’s and The Ohio State University.
This program provides clinical and basic science research training in the fields of Kidney and Bladder Diseases. Students will be paired with a research mentor to guide them through their summer projects, that will culminate in an abstract presentation. In addition, students will be able to shadow Nephrologists in the clinic and dialysis unit and Urologists in the operating room. SUPER Summer students will receive a summer stipend and receive support to attend the American Society of Nephrology Kidney Week meeting in 2023 (held in Washington D.C.).
This 10-week program allows students to…
Increase their understanding of urinary tract development, physiology, and disease pathogenesis
Enhance their knowledge in skills required to be a successful biomedical researcher
Be immersed in a translational research project
Have exposure to multi-disciplinary careers focused on nephrology and urology
Applicants should be in their sophomore or junior year.
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
There is Summer Undergraduate Research Program that will be offered this summer in the Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biophysics at Washington University in St. Louis.
