Plant Sciences Summer Internships for Undergraduate Students

Plant science is in the forefront of research and today's students will make
tomorrow's discoveries. The undergraduate summer research internship program
in the Department of Botany and Plant Pathology at Purdue University is
designed for the serious undergraduate student interested in graduate school
and who wishes to capture the excitement of research in the plant sciences.
The department is offering a limited number of eight week summer internships
in plant biology, plant pathology or weed science. Students will gain
experience in conducting research by working on ongoing projects with
research faculty, post-doctoral scholars, and graduate students. Special
programs will be offered related to laboratory safety, graduate education,
and career opportunities. Internship starts June 8 through August 2, 2003 at
the Purdue University West Lafayette campus.

Round trip transportation to West Lafayette will be provided and students
will be housed in air conditioned University dormitories. In addition to
transportation and housing, students will receive a stipend of $2500.00 for
the eight weeks. Students will have full access to Purdue libraries and
recreation facilities.

Students must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents and have completed 2
years college level study in one of the life sciences by June, 2003 with a
minimum grade point average of 3.0. Interns must be available for eight
consecutive weeks starting June 8 to August 2, 2003.
