Summer Research in Cardiovascular Physiology, Johns Hopkins University
Be part of a team of researchers examining the role of the protein CaMKII (Ca2+/calmodulin dependent kinase II) in heart failure and cardiac arrhythmias, a cause of sudden cardiac death. Students must have completed Cell Biology (Biol265), Genetics (Biol260) and Cell Gen Lab (Biol255). Strongest candidates will also have completed Organic Chem II, Biochemistry and/or Human Physiology. Read more. To apply, send i) a cover letter addressed to Professor Liz Jansen that describes relevant experience, interests and coursework, ii) your transcript (unofficial is fine if formatted appropriately), and iii) your resume or CV including contact information for three references (at least two should be Macalester faculty members). Send materials to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm, February 12, 2018. Include your last name in each document’s name (e.g., JansenResume) and save as a PDF.
Young Researcher’s Program
The Young Researchers Program is designed for students, typically after their first year, who have not had any previous research experience. This program provides a great introduction to research. For summer 2018, 3-4 young researchers will work with Professors Kristi Curry Rogers and Sarah Boyer on projects relating to “Growth in Living and Fossil Vertebrates; Biogeography of Post-Glacial Forest Animals.” To learn more and to apply, click here.
Jan Serie Research Fellowship: The Jan Serie Fund was created to support student-faculty collaborative research and is awarded as a fellowship to provide stipend support for students doing full time research during the summer in any area of science or math. Research may take place at Macalester or another site. The deadline for applications for the Serie Fellowship is 5:00PM on February 12, 2018.
