We’d like to share with you an upcoming opportunity at the NSF-Simons Center for Quantitative Biology (CQuB) at Northwestern University. 

Undergraduate Summer Research Program


We will host this program in person the Summer of 2023 from approximately June 19 through August 11, 2023. 

The Quantitative Biology Undergraduate Summer Research Program allows undergraduate students majoring in the life sciences and/or mathematical sciences to participate in hands-on laboratory and/or computational research that applies mathematical concepts and methodology to understanding mechanisms in biology.

Participants are encouraged to attend weekly workshops covering communication, presentation design, teamwork, and applying to graduate school; weekly lunches with faculty; day trips to a local museum or a national laboratory; and other cohort activities.

Participants in the program receive a taxable stipend of approximately $4,500. Travel, housing, and meals are not supported by this program. To be considered for this program, applicants must currently be freshmen, sophomores, or juniors with demonstrated interests in mathematics and/or biology.
