MHRI Young Researcher application open

Students are invited to apply to one of three summer research opportunities as a MHRI Young Researcher. Students will work with Macalester faculty mentors for 10 weeks in summer 2017. Opportunities are aimed at students with no prior research experience that are interested in exploring research and careers in science.  U.S. citizenship is not required for participation.  Selected participants will receive a $4,500 stipend and are eligible for free on-campus housing, which requires the purchase of a food plan.

The deadline for applications is 5 pm on February 13, 2017. Read more about the three Young Researcher Programs and submission instructions.  

Students with questions about the programs are encouraged to contact the Macalester-HHMI Program Director Professor Kelly MacGregor (Office: Olin Rice 114; email:
