Outside of the formal Summer program, some individual laboratories have opportunities for undergraduates to contribute to their research programs during either the summer or academic year. These are typically volunteer positions and both the specific work schedule and type of research conducted by the student will vary among the different laboratories. Students should identify specific research programs that match their interests (view descriptions of faculty and their research) and submit both an application and a transcript (unofficial is fine).
After its receipt, the Research Institute staff will evaluate the application and an attempt will be made to match students with a desired research program. We cannot guarantee that a match can be made.The matching process typically takes from 1 to 2 weeks. The Research Institute will contact you to notify whether a match has been either successfully made or not. If a match is made, you will be put in contact with an investigator from the laboratory to discuss the specific work schedule and type of research to be conducted.
We encourage students to also look for other opportunities at the
