The Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute is accepting applications for summer interns as part of its undergraduate clinical and translational research program, which provides undergraduate students with the opportunity to work with Indiana CTSI mentors on projects designed to increase their awareness of and interest in translational research.
The program is geared toward students who are keenly interested in research. However, in addition to conducting research, program activities will include training and workshops focused on developing skills in public speaking, writing, presentation preparation, how to deal with personal issues in postgraduate training and academic environments, research ethics, interviewing and more.
Summer interns will receive a $3,200 research stipend—half of which is disbursed mid-project, with the remainder disbursed upon successful completion of the project and submission of all research products. Interns are expected to work at least 40 hours per week during the program, which runs from June 1, 2017, to July 31, 2017, and they are required to present a poster at the IUPUI Student Summer Symposium. Interns may also be required to attend professional development sessions, as determined by the program director.
