Integrated Biological Sciences Summer Research Program for Undergraduates- The Institute for Biology Education at the University of Wisconsin-Madison invites junior and senior undergraduate students interested in research careers in the biological sciences to participate in the Integrated Biological Sciences Summer Research Program (IBS-SRP). This hands-on research program is designed primarily to give students from other colleges and universities a chance to experience the richness of research at UW–Madison. As part of the program, students do full-time research for 10 weeks with a faculty member in one of eight disciplinary areas:Biochemistry/Biophysics, Bioenergy,Cellular and Molecular Biology,Computational Biology & Biostatistics,Ecology, Plants, and Environmental Systems,Molecular & Environmental Toxicology, Neurobiology, and Virology. The eight disciplinary areas are connected through a seminar series highlighting major themes in biology, science writing, preparation for graduate school, and biological sciences careers. At the end of the program, students give an oral presentation of their research results and write a final research report that is published in a program journal. Applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents between their sophomore and senior years who have a grade point average of at least 3.0 and strong interest in a career in biological research. Students who are African American, Hispanic, Native American, Southeast Asian, Native Alaskan or Native Pacific Islander OR who are from low-income homes OR who are the first in their family to attend college OR who attend small liberal arts institutions without broad research facilities are strongly encouraged to apply.
