Mayo Research Opportunities

Hope Physics Aluma Dr. Cynthia McCullough asked us to share the following opportunities with the Hope Physics community:

  • Mayo Graduate School offers PhD and MD/PhD training to future leaders in biomedical research and education. Training is especially distinctive for the world-class research laboratories at Mayo Clinic campuses in Minnesota, Florida, and Arizona, and Mayo Clinic’s unique funding model where all PhD students are awarded 5-year internal fellowships to select the mentor of their choice with no teaching responsibilities. Mayo Graduate School particularly welcomes applications from international and underrepresented students. The Mayo Graduate School application deadline is Dec. 1, 2016. 
  • Mayo Graduate School Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Program offers a world-class opportunity for undergraduates to conduct a summer research project for 10 weeks while developing technical skills, networking, and enjoying special weekly seminars about current research. The SURF application deadline is Feb. 1, 2017.
  • Mayo Graduate School created and sustains the oldest competitive NIH-funded Post-Baccalaureate Research Education Program (PREP) in the U.S. This program enriches PhD- and MD/PhD-bound post-baccalaureate students from backgrounds underrepresented in biomedical research, with the goal of a future biomedical research workforce whose diversity matches that of our country. Participants benefit from mentored research, graduate courses, and focused training in communication skills. The PREP application deadline is May 1, 2017.
