The Department of Microbiology, Immunology & Molecular Genetics at the University of Kentucky College of Medicine is offering a summer research training fellowship to outstanding high school students with a strong interest in science.  Based on the availability of funding, one or more students will be selected to work approximately 25 hours a week and will be paid $10.10 per hour in a research laboratory for a period of 8 weeks. This fellowship will start no earlier than June 4th and end no later than August 10th.


The fellowship recipient(s) will join the research laboratory of one of our faculty members and work under the direct supervision of either a graduate student, post-doctoral fellow, or other research scientist.  The student will be expected to read assigned materials to gain background knowledge in the research student and will be trained in experimental techniques.  Typically, the student is able to perform at least some independent experiments by the end of the 8 week fellowship period.  The student will also be expected to give a final written or oral presentation about their research to members of the laboratory.


Selected student(s) will be given a short list of labs that are open for training this summer and will be allowed to rank their choices.  For more detailed information about faculty members and current research projects in the department, please click here.
