New Mexico INBRE Summer Undergraduate Research Program
February 1, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
The New Mexico INBRE Summer Experience (NISE) programs offer different options for undergraduate students to get summer research experience and training. The summer work experience will conclude in a presentation of results at a research symposium, held during the first week of August. APPLICATION DEADLINE: February, 1st, 2021
1. NISE-Bootcamp:** The goal is to increase student understanding of biomedical research and enhance their career development through a mixture of laboratory experiences and lecture-based activities on the New Mexico State University (NMSU) campus. Students between Sophomore and Junior Year (or those expecting to be 2 academic years away from a BS/BA degree) with little to no research experience will work with researchers at NMSU, including workshops to develop bench and college-success skills. NISE-Bootcamp will provide students with an authentic research experience to prepare them to pursue a career in science. NISE bootcamp will help students move from an academic understanding of science to hands-on experience with research techniques and concepts. Students with no research experience will be PAID to conduct Microbiology research at NMSU. Housing on NMSU campus will be included. An important expected outcome of this program is having students apply for and conduct mentored research internships the summer after they participate in Bootcamp. Apply Now
2. NISE-Internship:*** The goal is to enhance student research skills and prepare participants for graduate education in biomedical research and/or health research careers. Students, ideally between their Junior and Senior Year (or those entering their final/senior year as an undergraduate), planning to apply to graduate school in biomedical/behavioral sciences in the next year with research experience will be PAID and matched with NMSU or University of New Mexico (UNM) faculty to conduct independent biomedical research projects at NMSU or UNM. Housing on NMSU campus will be included. NISE-internship will help students identify appropriate graduate programs, and gain the application skills to make them competitive for entry into advanced degrees. An important and expected outcome is for students to apply to biomedical or behavioral graduate programs during the academic year following their NISE Internship. Apply Now
3. NISE-Bioinformatics****: Students interested in researching the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and other pandemics will be paid to engage virtually with scientists and bioinformaticians at the National Center for Genome Resources to develop critical-thinking, research and basic bioinformatics skills.
