|Summer Student Research Program with Maine Medical Center Research Institute|
|Organization: Maine Medical Center Research Institute|
|Opportunity: The MMCRI Summer Student Research Program offers undergraduates a unique opportunity to conduct research in diverse clinical and biomedical science fields during the summer months. During the ten-week program, students participate in mentored, independent research projects either in our state of the art research facility in Scarborough, or working with physicians to impact patient care or the outcome of treatment. Students also attend lectures and workshops featuring topics including bioethics, animal use in biomedical science and scientific presentation skills, as well as the opportunity to attend presentations by guest scientists and MMCRI faculty.
Research areas include: vascular biology, skeletal biology, clinical research, endocrine research, stem cell biology, cancer biology, health services research, developmental biology, regenerative biology, and medical simulation.
Applications are due January 15th, 2014

|Radiological Technologies University VT Summer Courses|
|Organization: Radiological Technologies University VT|
|Opportunity: This summer, RTU will be offering masters level college courses in two great disciplines: NanoMedicine and Medical Physics. The program will run from July 7th, 2014 – August 1st, 2014, and will take place in South Bend, Indiana. Students enrolled in the program will take both graduate level courses and have the opportunity to go on a clinical tour. A certificate of completion will be issued at the end of the course. Additional features of the trip include a guided tour of Chicago, a trip to Silver Beach, Lake Michigan, and going to a Silver Hawks baseball game.|

|Phd Program in Neural Computation|
|Organization: Carnegie Mellon and the University of Pittsburgh|
|Opportunity: The Program in Neural Computation (PNC) is a graduate training program in computational neuroscience for students seeking training in the application of quantitative approaches to the study of the brain. Specifically the program is designed to take advantage of the world class strengths of Carnegie Mellon University and our partner institution, the University of Pittsburgh, in areas including computer science, machine learning, statistics and dynamical systems and to train students to apply these tools to critical problems in neuroscience.The PNC is a new Ph.D. program, but it is based on the highly successful, but non degree granting training program of the Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition (CNBC). Both these programs require training in neuroscience ranging from the cellular to cognitive levels. The PNC also requires extensive training and a research focus in at least one quantitative area. Thus, the PNC program will be especially attractive to students coming from majors in math, computer science, statistics, engineering or physics who want to apply approaches from these disciplines to the understanding of brain function.|

|Call for Submissions to DePauw Undergraduate Ethics Symposium|
|Organization: DePauw University|
|Opportunity Details: Competition is a pervasive feature of human life; we find it on the athletic field and the battlefield as well as in politics, the business world, the courtroom and the classroom. What obligations do we have to our adversaries? Do virtue and integrity enhance or impede our quest for victory? What should we do when winning conflicts with doing the right thing? Is competition an obstacle to or an essential component of a meaningful life? Can institutionalized competition in economics or politics enhance the public interest? How should competition be effectively regulated? These are just some of the questions that fall under the umbrella of the theme of this year’s Symposium.
Although we encourage submissions on the “Virtue and Victory: Ethical Challenges in Competitive Life” theme, undergraduate students may submit essays and creative project on any topic in ethics. The Prindle Institute welcomes works centered on ethics from all disciplines, including the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences and the arts. Examples of the types of works accepted in the past include: argumentative and analytic essays, creative writing, poetry, film, documentaries and photography.

|Match Education Opportunities for Seniors|
|Organization: Match Education|
ATTENTION SENIORS – do you:
a) Want to be a highly effective educator in urban schools?
b) Want to volunteer for a year before grad school, law school, or medical school?
c) Want to get involved in education reform or public policy?
d) Want to transition into a career in the non-profit or education sector?If so, consider committing a year to the Match Corps, a one-year urban education service fellowship. Corps members serve full-time in one of our charter schools in Boston, tutoring and mentoring a small caseload of students. We also offer the Match Teacher Residency, so that in addition to tutoring full-time, Corps members can train and earn certification to become full-time teachers in other high-need urban schools.This year Match Corps has partnered with twelve schools in Chicago to bring the Match Corps tutoring model to traditional public schools. We will hopefully be accepting applications for our Chicago location later this fall. We recruit from all majors; candidates do not need to have a background in education. We seek candidates with strong content backgrounds – math, science, English, history, etc., and those who share our passion for social justice and education reform.

|JanPlan Internship at University of Arizona|
|Organization: University of Arizona|
|Opportunity Details: Do you think you might like to pursue a career in science, but would like to experience independent laboratory research before committing yourself to graduate school? The J-Bio Internship program (formerly known as the Winter Term Internship program) began in 1990 to provide students an opportunity for intensive “hands-on” research experience. Interns receive their own research projects, and are active members of their laboratories. Students take part in weekly laboratory meetings, and present a summary of their research accomplishments at the end of their stay. In addition, interns have the opportunity to attend weekly departmental and interdisciplinary seminars and to take part in graduate level journal clubs and discussion groups. The University of Arizona has an active Howard Hughes Undergraduate Biology Research Program (UBRP), with more than 100 students. J-Bio interns are invited to present at their annual poster session, which is held in January. Possible disciplines include plant science, biochemistry, molecular biology, pharmacology & toxicology and more.|
