The Rochester General Hospital Research Institute (RGHRI) offers college and medical students the opportunity to participate in laboratory or clinical research every summer. The selection process is very competitive and is based on the application submitted and availability of scientists and physicians to serve as mentors.
At this time we are offering positions in the Center for Infectious Diseases and Immunology. While we consider college students in any year, preference is given to students entering their third or fourth year after they have acquired basic knowledge in the biological sciences.
Acceptance is on a rolling basis for internships that generally begin on a Monday at the end of May or beginning of June and run for a consecutive 10 weeks.
Our expectations of student summer research applicants are:
We pay a modest stipend to some students ($200 per week).
We are particularly interested in students who might do a second summer or a project for credit with us. Please let us know your thoughts about that issue.
