The faculty of the Department of Pharmacology, Toxicology and Therapeutics at the University of Kansas Medical Center is pleased to announce the availability of basic research internships for the summer of 2016 (May 30 – August 5). Undergraduate students (international students with a valid visa also qualify) accepted into the program will perform basic research in Pharmacology or Toxicology in the Department while studying interactions between biological systems and chemical agents. Each student will work in the laboratory of an individual member of the faculty. The program also includes weekly discussion sessions with faculty members and current Pharmacology or Toxicology graduate students on selected topics in Pharmacology and Toxicology.
Each summer intern will receive a $3,000 stipend (does not include room and board; there is no student housing available on the KU Medical Center Campus) throughout the 10-week program, following the KU Medical Center payroll schedule.
Eligibility: The most competitive applications are those from students interested in graduate study and currently majoring in Chemistry, Biology, Pharmacy or related disciplines who are completing their sophomore or junior years in college.
Internship Duration: The duration of internship is ten weeks.
Note: Applicants will be notified whether they have been accepted or not by early April 2016.
