Visit the Graduate School of the Stowers Institute for Medical Research at the Biomedical Sciences Virtual Grad School Fair
UT Southwestern is also sponsoring the Quantitative and Physical Science Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (QP-SURF) Program. This program, initially funded by a NIGMS training grant and now funded internally, will accept 10 students who are earning their undergraduate degrees in the field of biomedical engineering, mathematics, computer science, physics, or chemistry. The goal of QP-SURF is to give students an intensive, research experience and demonstrate to students in the physical and quantitative sciences how their knowledge and skill sets are applied in a biomedical research setting. QP-SURF students would carry out their 10-week research project in a biomedical engineering, biophysics, computational biology, or quantitative/analytical chemistry laboratory. For more information, and to apply online, please go to www.utsoutwestern.edu/QP-SURF.
Both summer program will run from June 2nd through August 8th, 2014. Participants will be selected based on their letters of reference, course work, and experience. The stipend for the 10-week program is $4,000. If a fellow requires housing, the costs will be covered by the program: however, fellows are responsible for paing their own travel expenses. Application deadline is February 9, 2014. Any problems or questions, please email email@example.com
Carnegie Mellon University Department of Chemistry's 3rd Biennial John A. Pople Lectures in the Theoretical and Computational Chemistry
Bryn Mawr College is a small liberal arts college 20 minutes west of Philadelphia, located in a beautiful suburban environment. There is easy access to Philadelphia by train and a consortial arrangement exists that provides our students access to the University of Pennsylvania for courses and/or facilities when needed.
If you feel Bryn Mawr might offer an attractive environment for some of your students to pursue graduate studies in chemistry, please direct them to the website for our graduate program:
http://www.brynmawr.edu/chemistry/graduate/. At the website you can learn about our faculty and their research areas, see where our current students come from, and read why they chose Bryn Mawr for graduate studies towards a Ph.D.
We will be hosting a Graduate Open House on Oct. 26th. This is a terrific opportunity for students to meet faculty and current students and see first hand what doing graduate work in a liberal arts environment would be like. I will be sending a small poster (see attached) by US mail that advertises our Open House on Oct. 26th. Please mention this opportunity to any of your students who might be interested. Students may email me to register for the event.
If you or your students have any questions, please contact me.
