2018 Cornell Undergraduate Summer Research Internship
Johns Hopkins Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine
This is a 10-week mentored experience in basic, clinical, or translational research at Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions. Up to three Cornell students will each be assigned to a laboratory and a research project under the supervision of a faculty member, based on availability and the student’s interests.
Faculty will be either from the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care or scientists from other departments. Students will be expected to participate in lab meetings, weekly journal clubs, and present their work along with other trainees in a poster symposium at summer’s end.
The program includes coaching on oral and poster scientific presentation and the opportunity for a mock graduate school/medical school admissions interview. The goal of the internship is to provide an intensive and stimulating mentored research experience for a student in biological sciences who is planning postgraduate training and a career in science or medicine.
This position is open to Cornell biological sciences majors in the College of Arts and Sciences or Agriculture and Life Sciences who will have completed their sophomore year by July 1, 2018 (rising juniors and seniors). They must have completed at least two semesters of introductory or higher biology, and have a science GPA of 3.50 or above and anticipate attending graduate school or medical school.
All application materials, including transcript and letters, must be received by February 1st, 2018.
The application includes:
1. 2-page application form
2. One letter of reference (preferable from a biology professor, previous research mentor, or advisor who knows you well). This letter should include comments on your ability to work independently as well as in teams.
3. Official college transcript
4. Resume or curriculum vitae.
