The Heart Research Center is looking for scientists at OHSU to mentor undergraduate biology students through the Murdock Undergraduate Collaborative Research Program.
How it works: The Heart Research Center invites eight of the top undergraduate biology students in the area to participate in the program. As a mentor, you work with a Murdock Scholar for ten weeks during the summer on a project and to continue to assist the scholar throughout the following year to prepare a final thesis and give a presentation at a special session of the Oregon Academy of Sciences. If you decide to mentor a student, their stipend will be paid for you by the program, and your laboratory will receive $1,000 to help cover supplies.
Interested or have questions? Please contact Carolyn Reid at 503-494-2305. Potential mentors will be scheduled to meet with students during December and January and can then decide whether or not to accept a Scholar.
