Summer Science Workshop*

APPLICATIONS ARE NOW OPEN FOR UC Berkeley's exciting summer 7-day program:


Students will receive support to cover travel expenses to attend the
workshop as well as full room and board.

Quantitatively-inclined undergraduates are strongly encouraged to apply!

EiSR will be held June 15-June 23 at UC Berkeley. Apply by April 2, 2013.

For application information: http://scienceconnections.<wbr />berkeley.edu/

2013 is the International Year for the Mathematics of the Earth. This
National Science Foundation-sponsored workshop will focus on the (unsolved)
puzzle of the contemporary carbon cycle.

Our short program is designed to encourage and help prepare students to
attend graduate school in the sciences. It is aimed at undergraduates who
are rising juniors or seniors. Students will learn how earth & planetary
scientists approach large, complex problems and how new research,
instruments, data, and analytic tools are producing results at the nexus of
science, public understanding and policymaking. Students will gain a basic
understanding of computing and visualization tools.

Applicants are expected to have some basic quantitative skills, including a
freshman or sophomore level background in calculus and physics.
Undergraduates majoring in earth & planetary science, computer science,
physics, chemistry, biology, mathematics, statistics, engineering are all
encouraged to apply. One of this program's top priorities is broadening
participation in science. Women and underrepresented minorities are
strongly encouraged to apply. Only US citizens and permanent residents will
be considered. A minimum GPA of 3.0 is required. Support for EiSR is
provided by the National Science Foundation-Innovation Through
Institutional Integration program: Berkeley Science Connections.


*2. Post bac opportunity for underrepresented students*

Currently PREP is accepting applications for the 2013-2014 cohort. PREP
stands for Post-baccalaureate Research and Education Program and is a
National Institutes of Health (NIH) training program. PREP is designed to
enhance the ability of *under-represented individuals in the biomedical
sciences *to gain entry to and succeed in nationally recognized Ph.D.

This program is for recent graduates who want to continue their education
specifically in the biomedical sciences. PREP’s main benefit is to engage
the scholar in cutting edge research for one full year with a faculty
mentor of their choice. We also offer many other benefits, such as, annual
salary, health/dental benefits, GRE preparation classes, tuition for
academic courses, travel support to attend conferences and social and
cultural activities.

The eligibility requirements for this program are as followed:  The
applicant must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident and be a member of a
group that is found to be under-represented in the biomedical sciences. A
person who feels they are from a challenging or disadvantage background
must be a recipient of a Bachelor’s degree within the 36 months prior to
the time of acceptance into the program. Also, the person must have a
cumulative GPA of at least 3.0 (out of 4.0).  Demonstrate commitment to
pursuing a Ph.D. in a biomedical research field and have little or no
research laboratory experience.

This is a very interdisciplinary program that recruits and accepts
applications from participating departments such as Biochemistry/Molecular
Biology, Biology, Biomedical Sciences(6 departments), Chemical & Nuclear
Engineering, Chemistry/Biological Chemistry, Computer Science, Physics &
Astronomy and Psychology but not limited to the previous mentioned
departments.  Regardless of their undergraduate degree, if they have a
sincere interest in pursuing a Ph.D. in a biomedical research field then
this is definitely the program for them

The application process involves many steps, but there is no hard deadline.
The first step is to go tohttps://unmjobs.unm.edu, Search for a Posting
number *0818051*, then click View to access the application. Please submit
a cover letter, resume/CV, personal statement, official transcripts, and
three letters of reference. All these documents are required, and must be
submitted before we can view the application.

For further questions or comments that you have please contact the program
coordinator, Antonio Bañuelos at PREP at unm.edu or jbanuelo at unm.edu or Tel: (505)
610- 1725.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you in the near
