NC State BIT SURE
2024 BIT Summer Undergraduate Research Experience with NC State Biotechnology
BIT SURE gives students the opportunity to work under one of our BIT instructors on a directed undergraduate research project. Students will learn new techniques and apply these methods to address a specific research project. This program gives students access to direct mentorship while developing independent research skills. Students interested in science careers behind the bench in academic, government, or industry labs are likely to benefit from this experience. Former students have published research in peer-reviewed journals. See a recent publication from a 2016 NC State graduate here!
The program is open to NC State undergraduate students. The program consists of paid, part-time in-person, hybrid, or remote research (depending on the project) under the guidance of one of the Biotechnology instructors. Students who participate in the program will be required to present their findings at the NC State Undergraduate Research Summer Symposium. Please send questions to Dr. Phillip Brown.
Application Deadline – February 2, 2024!
