Location: East Lansing, Michigan
Agency: Michigan State University
Due Date: February 5, 2018
GPA: 3.00
Stipend: 5,250.00
Description: Interns in the Plant Genomics @ MSU REU program will be embedded within a host lab and undertake a 10-week mentored research project under the direct supervision of a faculty member together with either a postdoctoral associate or graduate student mentor. Interns will participate fully in host lab events, including group meetings and activities with the aim of simulating life as a new graduate student. In addition, interns will attend seminars and networking events with MSU faculty and graduate students that will introduce them to diverse research projects and provide information regarding life in graduate school and careers within STEM. Interns will also attend a series of workshops designed to advance their professional development including, responsible conduct of research and research ethics, presentation skills, scientific writing, and GRE test taking strategies. Several social events will also be held that will facilitate interactions between faculty, graduate students and interns in plant sciences and with other internship programs that run concurrently with the Plant Genomics program. During the final week of the program, interns will present their research in poster format at the annual MIDSURE conference at MSU and also give oral presentations to the MSU plant science community.
