The Stanford Summer Research Program in Biomedical Sciences/Amgen Scholars Program is an nine-week residential internship program. It offers undergraduates from across the country who want to prepare for and enter Ph.D. programs in biomedical sciences a unique opportunity for advanced research experience within a world-class university.
Research Internships for Stanford Undergraduates
SLAC has an exciting program offering summer internships for undergraduates, and for more than thirty years has offered 20-25 students an eight-week paid internship at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) in Menlo Park, California.
SURGE provides undergraduate scholars (from Stanford and other U.S. institutions) with a mentored research experience in a Stanford research group or laboratory. This fully funded, eight-week, summer residential program combines a rigorous research assignment with a comprehensive training and mentoring program. SURGE focuses on preparing students for graduate school, and therefore targets rising undergraduate juniors and seniors.
The Department of Bioengineering (BioE) will offer Stanford undergraduates stipends to conduct research over the summer in 2016. The program is full-time for 10 weeks, extending from June - August and is designed to give undergraduates an opportunity to work with members of the BioE Faculty and their research groups on advanced research topics.
The Army High Performance Computing Research Center (AHPCRC) Summer Institute, an 8-week program for undergraduate students, is held at Stanford University. The Summer Institute provides training and hands-on experience in the use of computational techniques for science and engineering students with a curriculum of short courses in computational engineering methods concentrating on structural mechanics, fluid dynamics, and computer programming for parallel clusters. Students gain research experience working with one of the AHPCRC research groups at Stanford University.
The Canary Center at Stanford is a research center dedicated to early cancer detection research. As part of our efforts to train the next generation of scientists, we offer a paid and unpaid summer internship program. Canary Center interns will work in faculty labs for a 10-week internship in our state-of-the-art research facility. Each participant will be matched with a faculty, postdoctoral scholar, or senior scientist mentor who will help them craft a research project. The successful applicant can expect to work in a dynamic lab environment on challenging projects that involve a broad range of research techniques. The program also includes a series of weekly seminars on early cancer detection research, conducting scientific research, careers in science and the chance to interact with other interns. The program culminates with a research symposium, where students present individual talks or posters on their summer projects in front of their peers, faculty and lab mentors.
These 7-week unpaid internships are awarded to outstanding high school and undergraduate students interested in pursuing careers in biomedicine and biological sciences. Interns work from mid-June until early August on a research project within the lab of Professor Jill Helms that entails exposure to the latest biochemical, molecular, and analytical techniques in a given field.
Stanford Center for Genomics and Personalized Medicine is a hub of interdisciplinary research in genomics with a goal towards improving human health. GeneCamp offers a 9-week internship program for high school students and undergraduates. There is no charge to participate.
Introducing Stanford undergraduates to the excitement of interdisciplinary research at the frontiers of knowledge is essential for training a new generation to participate in discovery. The Bio-X Undergraduate Summer Research Program (Bio-X USRP) provides an opportunity for undergraduate students to conduct hands-on research, build awareness of interdisciplinary areas, and network with Bio-X faculty. This formative experience influences their subsequent work at Stanford and beyond.
