Welcome to SABR
The purpose of this program is to give undergraduate students the opportunity to experience
life as a scientist. Many of our past SABR interns have continued on to graduate school
and a career in research.
We will pay you a stipend of $3800 for the summer. You will be assigned a mentor who
will give you a project that you can complete during the summer. Working on your own
research project will be an immersive experience for the entire duration of the ten-week
internship. In addition to the hands on experience you will get while working in the
laboratory, you will also be exposed to a series of seminars given by established
scientists. The topics of these seminars will range from practical issues including
laboratory safety and scientific ethics to how to present your scientific findings
to a lay audience. You will also be able to interact with current graduate students
as they present the research that they are conducting and share with you insights
on graduate student life.
Finally, you will receive laboratory and radiation safety training certification that
may be used at a later date.
Check out what we have planned for your summer by clicking on the calendar link. At
the end of the internship you will present your work in an abstract and a 10-minute
talk, just like you would at a national scientific meeting.
Admission is very competitive, so get your application in early. Please feel free
to contact potential mentors whose research you find interesting. However, pre-selecting
a mentor does not guarantee acceptance into the SABR internship. You will find links
to mentor laboratories on the left. I look forward to meeting you in June.
