Preprofessional Opportunities

Princeton University


Category: Summer
Type: Research
Location: Princeton New York
Deadline: Early February


Students whose participation will add to the diversity of researchers in the sciences, or whose interests lie at the boundary between biology and the computational sciences including physics, chemistry, computer science and engineering, or who are from institutions that do not have large research programs are encouraged to apply. Applicants must be US citizens, permanent residents, or foreign undergraduates attending a US educational institution.


Each summer, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the Department of Molecular Biology, and the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics provide Summer Undergraduate Research Program students intensive laboratory research experiences to a select group of undergraduates chosen from a nationwide pool. Each student joins a world-class research group – headed by a Faculty member – and carries out an original research project. Participants are immersed in a culture of close collaboration with other undergraduates, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty, and thereby experience first-hand what it is like to be a scientist.
