Nevada INBRE Summer Research Opportunity

Nevada INBRE offers an exciting opportunity for undergraduates to have a hands-on laboratory experience in an emerging field of biomedical science such as genomics, proteomics, biological imaging, bioinformatics, or any field of research supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

INBRE will select recipients for $4,500 awards for students to work with a faculty mentor on an independent research project. An INBRE summer research experience will enrich your science education, allow you to gain first-hand knowledge about a scientific career, and will give you a competitive edge on graduate school, medical school and job applications. UROP projects often lead to longer term collaborations, publishable research, and careers in medicine or biomedical research.

Application deadline is March 23, 2018.


Research Experiences for Undergraduates Program in Urban Ecology and the Environment

June 5- August 17, 2018.

BUEE offers an integrative summer research program aimed at developing early-career undergraduate students into mature and thoughtful environmental scientists. Authentic research experiences on human-coupled natural systems are complemented by an academic program aimed at developing practical experience in research design, scientific communication and community outreach. BUEE leverages the unique academic and research resources at Brooklyn, including a state-of-the-art Aquatic Research and Environmental Assessment Center, and our recently-established Science and Resilience Institute at Jamaica Bay.

Application deadline is April 1, 2018.


The Southwest Environmental Center- Internships Available

Our internships offer the opportunity to gain important skills in conservation work. You’ll learn firsthand how a biodiversity advocacy organization works to mobilize public support, influence public policy and undertake ecological restoration. We have a small staff, so you’ll be an important part of the SWEC team.

Some of our internships pay a small stipend, others are unpaid depending upon our current staff resources. Either way, you’ll receive great work experience and possibly academic credit. We require a 3-6 month commitment, working at least 12 hours per week on a flexible schedule.

We are looking for interns who have excellent written and verbal communication skills, relevant coursework and/or experience, good interpersonal skills for public outreach, the ability to work independently, and a strong commitment to SWEC’s mission of biodiversity protection.


Chemistry- Biology Interface Graduate Program- Johns Hopkins University

The CBI Program brings together 28 faculty from the Schools of Arts & Sciences, Engineering, Public Health and Medicine at Johns Hopkins University and provides a diverse selection of research projects for students. In order to assist them in choosing a research advisor, first year graduate students are supported by a NIH Chemical Biology Training Grant. During this time the CBI students participate in three 10-week research rotations that enable them to broaden their research skills and make informed choices of research advisors.



New York City Hunter College Master’s Program in Animal Behavior and Conservation

This 36- credit Master of Arts Program enables students interested in animal behavior and conservation (ABC) to develop and enhance their research skills and understanding of the behavior of animals, and to acquire credentials for employment in fields related to ABC. This free-standing MA Program replaces the previous concentration in ABC within the Psychology MA Program with no changes in requirements.


NSF- Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU)

NSF funds a large number of research opportunities for undergraduate students through its REU Sites program. AN REU Site consists of a group of ten or so undergraduates who work in the research programs of the host institution. Each student is associated with a specific research project, where he/she works closely with the faculty and other researchers. Students are granted stipends and, in many cases, assistance with housing and travel. An REU Site may be at either a US or foreign location.
