Mentoring early career researchers


  • Biomedical Graduate Training Programs run by the Office of Diversity and Minority Affairs.
  • Grants available for trainees including students, post docs and residents.
  • CityLab’s SummerLab Program provides an opportunity for students to learn and apply basic techniques and concepts related to biotechnology. Working in teams, the participants assume the role of researchers in a biotechnology company and work cooperatively to choose and perform appropriate laboratory-based investigations to solve problems in biotechnology.
    • This summer there is a special offer being extended to the BU community. All children of BU faculty and staff will receive a 50% scholarship off of the $1,000 fee. Eligible students will be entering grade 10 – college freshmen in the fall of 2013.
  • Medical Student Summer Research Program offers up to 30 competitive $2,750 scholarships to first-year Boston University medical students to complete an 8-week research project with a BUMC faculty member during the summer.
  • NIH National Graduate Student Research Festival recruits outstanding young scientists to postdoctoral positions in the intramural research program at the NIH.
  • Posse Foundation: Public high school students with extraordinary academic and leadership potential receive four-year, full-tuition leadership scholarships.
  • Postdoctoral recruitment at UT Southwestern
  • Responsible Conduct of Research training for undergraduates, graduate students, and postdocs
  • Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship: The SURF Program is designed to promote access to graduate education for talented undergraduate students,¬†especially those from minority groups traditionally underrepresented in the sciences.
  • Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program: BU students can perform research on a volunteer basis, for academic credit, through the work-study program, as a mentor-funded assistant, or with the aid of a UROP grant.
fifth annual NIH National Graduate Student Research Festival, to be held October 25 and 26, 2010 on the main NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland. The purpose of this event is to recruit outstanding young scientists to postdoctoral positions in the intramural research program at the NIH. To be eligible, students must be enrolled in a PhD program in the U.S. and on schedule to complete their PhD degree requirements by October 2011. We will select ~200 students to visit our campus for two days of activities including poster sessions, science talks, information interactions with current NIH postdocs, and informational sessions about research and training opportunities at NIH
