Now, about the Clinical Lab Internships:
Season's Greetings from Mayo Clinic!
We wanted to share with you and your students that we will have opportunities for summer student internships in the clinical lab setting again in 2012. Last year Human Resources changed the computer system and we now have an electronic application instead of the paper applications. Students will be able to start applying January 1, 2012 when the SLSP job posting goes live. Students may visit this web site for more information: http://www.mayoclinic.org/
Students must have ALL required documents (i.e. unofficial transcripts, resume, etc.) at the time of application. If something is missing, the application should be saved as a draft, do not submit if the application is not complete. If the application is not complete, it will automatically be rejected.
It is a very competitive program. We usually have about 125 applications for about 18 positions. The program starts the first week in June and goes to the end of August. The application deadline for our summer lab science program is Friday, February 24, 2011.

MURF UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH FELLOWSHIPS
The MURF program aims to increase the participation of underrepresented students (such as African American, Hispanic, and Native American, females who are underrepresented in their discipline, or first-generation college students) in science and engineering Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. programs and to make Caltech's programs more visible to students not traditionally exposed to Caltech.
Eligibility: Students must be current sophomores through non-graduating seniors and must be U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents. A minimum GPA of 3.2 is required.
Competitive applicants will have completed sophomore-level courses in desired research field, have demonstrated through academic and/or co-curricular activities a passion for research, and can articulate how their research interests align with Caltech's research areas.
Support: MURF students will receive a $6000 award for the ten-week program. An additional $500 housing and travel supplement will be provided.
Application: Online Applications are due January 11, 2012.
For more information, please visit www.murf.caltech.edu
AMGEN SCHOLARS PROGRAM
Caltech's Amgen Scholars Program is geared towards students in biology, chemistry, and biotechnology fields. Some of these fields include biology, biochemistry, bioengineering, chemical and biomolecular engineering, and chemistry.
Eligibility: Students must be current sophomores through non-graduating seniors, must be attending a four-year university, and must be U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents. A minimum GPA of 3.2 is required.
Support: Amgen Scholars will receive a $5500 award, round-trip air transportation, a generous housing allowance, and a food allowance.
Application: Online applications are due February 15, 2012.

2012 NASA Student Airborne Research Program (SARP)
June 17 - August 10, 2012
The NASA Airborne Science Program invites highly motivated junior and senior undergraduate and early graduate students to apply for participation in the NASA Student Airborne Research Program (SARP 2012). SARP provides students with hands-on research experience in all aspects of a major scientific campaign, from detailed planning on how to achieve mission objectives to formal presentation of results and conclusions to peers and others.
Participants will fly onboard the NASA P-3B aircraft where they will assist in the operation of instruments to sample and measure atmospheric gases and to image land and water surfaces in multiple spectral bands. Along with airborne data collection, students will participate in taking measurements at field sites. Students will work in multi-disciplinary teams to study surface, atmospheric, and oceanographic processes. Each student will develop his/her own individual research project.
Instrument and flight preparations, and the research flights themselves, will take place at NASA’s Dryden Aircraft Operations Facility, in Palmdale, CA. Post-flight data analysis and interpretation will take place at the University of California, Irvine. Applicants must have a strong academic background in any of the physical, chemical, or biological sciences, or engineering and an interest in applying their background to the study of the Earth system. We especially encourage applications from students majoring in Earth, environmental or atmospheric sciences and related disciplines.
SARP participants will receive round-trip travel to California, housing and transportation during the 8-week program, a $3,000 stipend and a $2,500 meals allowance.
Applications received by Jan. 20, 2012 will be considered for early acceptance.
The deadline for all applications is Feb. 10, 2012.
