The 5C SURP has a number of summer research positions available. Most of these are funded by our collaborative grant from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI). Students from any college can apply for any of the listed positions. Applications for these summer positions are due February 21 (see link below to download the application).

All Biology Summer Research Students are expected to work full-time for 10 weeks during the summer. The exact starting and ending dates are stipulated by the faculty advisor.
