Open to All Students

For the 20th consecutive year, UT Southwestern Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences is sponsoring the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Program. The goal of SURF is to give students an intensive, 10-week, research experience in a world class research environment. Students immerse themselves in the laboratory and work on individual research projects with UT Southwestern Graduate School faculty. Most areas of modern cancer biology, cell biology, molecular biology, biochemistry, immunology, microbiology, neuroscience, and pharmacology are represented. In addition to research, SURF provides seminars, GRE prep, social events and an end-of-program poster session. We have increased the number of fellowships for SURF to 85. The SURF website and on-line application can be found at .

For the ninth  year, we are also sponsoring the Quantitative and Physical Science Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (QP-SURF) Program. This program, initially funded by a NIGMS training grant and now funded internally, will accept 10 students who are earning their undergraduate degrees in the field of biomedical engineering, mathematics, computer science, physics, or chemistry. The goal of QP-SURF is to give students an intensive, research experience and demonstrate to students in the physical and quantitative sciences how their knowledge and skill sets are applied in a biomedical research setting. QP-SURF students would carry out their 10-week research project in a biophysics, computational biology, or quantitative/analytical chemistry laboratory. QP-SURF students also participate in seminars, GRE prep, social events and an end-of-program poster session. The program website and on-line application for QP-SURF can be found at .

Both summer programs will run from June 3rd through August 9th, 2013.  Participants will be selected based on their letters of reference, course work and experience. The stipend for the 10-week program is $4,000. If a fellow requires housing, the costs will be covered by the program; however, fellows are responsible for paying their own travel expenses. Application deadline is February 9, 2013. Please share the attached SURF and QP-SURF fliers with students who have indicated interest in a research career and might wish to apply. The value of this summer opportunity is great for those interested in careers in research. Previous fellows have been enthusiastic about their experience; most have enrolled in excellent Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. programs.
