Money for summer research projects and fellowships

Joan Press, Undergraduate Advising Head for Biology, wrote:

Over the next few weeks Academic Services will be holding several Info Sessions about the Summer URP and Jerome A. Schiff Fellowships, both of which fund undergraduate research projects.  The Summer URP allows students to ask for any amount from $50-$2,000 to fund summer research, whereas the Schiff’s funding (~$2,000) is designed for larger, (school)year-long projects.  The deadlines will be in mid-March and First-years, Sophomores and Juniors from all departments are all encouraged to apply.

Professional Science Master’s Program in Biotechnology

Brandeis has initiated a new masters program, the Professional Science Masters in Biotechnology, which couples training in science, business and a workforce internship.  Brandeis students have the option of applying to the degree program in their junior year – they would begin program courses in their senior year and would receive the MS in Biotechnology degree after one additional year of graduate work (the “5-year option”).  Seniors can apply to enter the two-year MS degree program.  Applications will be considered beginning MARCH 15, with students admitted on a rolling basis.

Profs. Neil Simister and Susan Lovett will hold an informational meeting about the program on Thursday Feb. 4 at 6:30 PM in the Rosenstiel building, room 118.

Key elements of the program include:

  • Hands-on laboratory experience with state-of-the-art bioscience technologies
  • Integrated coursework in molecular and cell biology, with opportunities to pursue individual interests in courses taught by world-class faculty in biology and biochemistry
  • Courses that aid understanding of the biosciences industry, including business, project management, regulatory affairs and ethics
  • Development of professional skills through writing, oral presentations, research practice, data analysis and team projects
  • A summer workforce or research internship
  • Individual advising and mentorship at each stage
