During each of the last fourteen summers, researchers at The Cleveland Clinic have supported several John Carroll University students in their research labs and The Clinic will again support students during Summer 2014. This is an excellent opportunity for students considering careers in research and medicine and for students who have not yet made up their minds about a career direction.

We encourage students to apply to this program by submitting an application form along with a degree evaluation with detail requirements (generated on Banner) that includes courses and grades from the Fall 2013 semester. We expect that students will be paid a stipend of $3200 for a 10 week commitment (40 hours/week) during the period from mid-May to late August (the exact period will be determined by the student and his/her Clinic mentor). Applying for this program does not preclude students from applying to other summer research programs either here at JCU or elsewhere; it is simply one more option for a summer research opportunity.

Students will be selected for the program based on their academic record, relevant coursework, and the comments of two JCU science faculty members who can serve as references. Relevant coursework includes Genetics, Microbiology, Biochemistry (with lab), Cell Biology, Molecular Genetics, Molecular Cell Biology, Molecular Methods Lab, and Intro. to Biotechnology Lab. In addition, researchers at The Clinic are especially interested in students who can continue working, with pay, on their projects at The Clinic during the academic year and/or the following summer.
