NSF Biotechnology Summer Research Experience at NC State University

Are you interested in working on cutting-edge biotechnology projects? Would you like to enhance your undergraduate experience and work collaboratively with faculty and peers on research in your area of interest? Do you want to learn more about biotechnology research careers in academia, industry, and government? If yes, BIT SURE is for you! 

Advanced sequencing tools are transforming the way modern biologists conduct research. Scientists today require new skills and knowledge to effectively use high-throughput sequencing technologies to analyze their resulting complex data in order to answer important biological questions. BIT SURE is your chance to learn how to tackle these “Big Data” grand challenges of our future.

Join the NC State Pack for ten weeks, May – July 2021, to develop your skills as a scientist over a summer of research, collaboration, professional development, science outreach, and fun! Students will receive a stipend of $5,500 for ten weeks of research. Please note that the Summer 2021 Experience will be entirely virtual.

We welcome and encourage applications from students of all identities and backgrounds, including those who may need to request accommodations to facilitate their application and/or participation. 

Questions? Contact Carlos C. Goller at ccgoller@ncsu.edu or visit go.ncsu.edu/BITSURE to apply. Application deadline is February 14, 2021.
