Summer research in the Barnard Chemistry Department
Barnard faculty work on their research in the summer, often involving students in their projects. Summer internships in the department are funded by a variety of sources including Sherman Fairchild Fellowship, the Provost Office, Bernice G. Segal Fellowships, and some supported by faculty research grants.
Faculty research talks on Friday, February 5, 12:00-2:00 PM (903 Altschul) provide an opportunity for prospective summer and thesis students to hear about our research and the opportunities for student involvement. We will also describe the summer application process.
*Please be aware that we typically receive many more applications than we are able to accommodate. You are strongly encouraged to apply elsewhere for additional opportunities.
Applications are due Wednesday, February 24, 2016, to Ms. Joanna Chisolm, 504A Altschul or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We encourage applicants to speak with faculty members individually prior to appication submission.

Summer internships away from Barnard
Many colleges and universities have REU (Research Experiences for Undergraduates) programs sponsored by the NSF (National Science Foundation) or similar summer internship programs. Rising seniors (those finishing their junior year) are often preferred, but many programs are also open to rising juniors and sophomores. Posters about many programs are on the 8th floor of Altschul, central corridor. Notices continue to arrive over the next months, so check back often. WWW listings of many opportunities are maintained through the college’s Hughes Science Pipeline program: (http://hspp.barnard.edu/barnard-student/internship-opportunities). This can be accessed from the Chemistry Department web page. Some application deadlines are as early as February 1, others are later.
Apply often, and good luck.
