The Carnegie Institute Department of Biology offers summer research
experiences to undergraduates from Stanford and other institutions
(including local community colleges and state Universities). Summer
research experiences for undergraduates run for 8-10 weeks during the
summer*. Students are expected to work full-time during the summer (40
hours/week). Students are paid a salary which can be used for housing.
Carnegie does not provide housing for summer interns.

The Carnegie Undergraduate Science Program includes: A summer seminar
series for undergraduates and an Undergraduate Student Research
Symposium. During the summer, students gather for weekly
meetings/seminars and prepare presentations for the Undergraduate
Research Symposium held at the end of the summer. Seminars typically
involve informal presentations by post-doctoral fellows and graduate
students and discussion. At the summer research symposium, summer
interns present posters or short talks about their research to the
department.

Please read about the Research interests of the faculty

biochemistry, pathogen interactions, microbial evolution and
phototaxis.
