Duke Summer Research Opportunity Program – Apply by Jan. 26th!

Duke Summer Research Opportunity Program

The Duke University Summer Research Opportunity Program (SROP) is a 10-week training program designed to give motivated undergraduate students hands-on experience in graduate-level biomedical research. The Duke SROP is geared toward students who are seriously considering joining a Ph.D. graduate program after completing their undergraduate degree.

 

The Duke SROP emphasizes direct laboratory experience. Students spend a majority of their time learning research techniques in the laboratory, attending lab meetings, interacting with members of other labs, and otherwise conducting themselves just as if they were in graduate school. Each student is mentored by a faculty mentor, solving real research problems in an active, modern biomedical research laboratory.

In addition to laboratory research, the program features:

  • Weekly research seminars and roundtable discussions
  • Academic and career-planning workshops
  • GRE preparation
  • Mock interviews for graduate school
  • Weekly social activities, including dinner outings, movies, games, and shopping
  • Closing symposia where the students present their research in oral presentations and a poster session

Students receive shared on-campus apartment accommodation, travel assistance, and a competitive stipend.

The 2017 SROP runs from May 30 through August 5. The application period opens October 26, 2016. The application and supporting materials must be received by January 26, 2017.
