University of Michigan Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF)

8 December 2021

The University of Michigan Samuel & Jean Frankel Cardiovascular Center (FCVC) is pleased to offer a 10-week Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) in the summer of 2022.

Program Description:  Each fellow will be matched, based on their interests, to a laboratory led by a FCVC faculty member. This collection of laboratories is involved in internationally recognized research in topics such as atherosclerosis, genetic cardiomyopathies, blood clotting disorders, cardiac arrhythmias, vascular biology, and heart failure.  Fellows will be paid via bi-weekly paychecks at a rate of $15/hour for ten weeks of full-time work, starting the Tuesday after Memorial Day and ending the second week of August. The program includes scientific seminars, social events, and a two-day research symposium where fellows present their research to their peers and FCVC faculty and staff. Program dates are subject to change pending the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The application opens TODAY, December 6, 2021 and closes Sunday, January 30, 2022. I have attached our flyer to forward on to students you feel would be interested. We ask that you please forward this information to excellent undergraduate students interested in research, especially those that might be interested in pursuing biomedical research as a part of their long-term career plans.
